Low FPS on SW:TOR with GTX560Ti
I have a brand new GTX560Ti for a few days now, on a system with an Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 (2.4), 4 Gigs of RAM, and Windows 7 32bit and a 24" Eizo monitor (1920x1200). I have tried with the 285.62 drivers and the 290.53 beta drivers, with Tripple Buffering On in the NVidia Control Panel, and with Vertical Sync On in the SW:TOR Settings, while all settings on Low, Shadows and Conversation Depth of Field off. The FPS varying from 30 to 80 while standing still in any given area. While moving in crowded areas it goes from 20 to 50. But the real pain is in WarZones while PvPing: the frame rate is between 10-20. I don't know what else to do to sustain a constant 30fps rate. The CPU is sufficient enough, the memory is just fine, the graphics card is supposed to have plenty of horsepower for that game. I have a 750 Watt Zalman Power Supply, I tried latest and beta drivers, I got everything set to Low in Settings. Am I missing something? Is it a drivers issue? Should I change something in the NVidia Control Panel? This thing is really frustrating. Any ideas or suggestions?

I have exactly the same system except I run on a 1680 x 1050 monitor and I'm experiencing the same problems as you, but I'm starting to think it's a software issue because there are so many people with the same problem with varying system specs.

I have a 560Ti and found that upgrading my CPU made a huge difference. Went from a Core2 Duo @ 3.16GHz to an i7 2700K @ 3.5GHz. My FPS nearly doubled, so I'm guessing the game is very CPU bound.

@ Kajuku

I dont feel like your CPU is enough for the gtx560ti. I have also bought a 560gtx ti and I have a quad core Q9450 stock 2.66 GHz, when testing 3dmark06 I had around 13500 3dmarks, when I did some OC to CPU and it was at 2.8 Ghz I had 14300 3Dmarks in score. I've pushed it to 2.93 Ghz and got 15200 3Dmarks. And as gravioli_SLI states... the game is more CPU demanding as well.
