Greetings ForumQuest Champions, I'm trying to get some ideas on how I can upgrade my rig strictly for EQ purposes. So inb4 "you can play EQ on a brick" I'm aware of that. But I want to increase performance whether it be during raids or multiboxing from a single PC. Typically I start to have issues with frame rate the more boxes I have up, or when there is a lot of incoming info to the log file when raiding. I often have to turn windows defender off during raids. From what I understand EQ is mostly intensive on the CPU, is that correct? If not I'd like to learn more. I'm not a hardware expert by any means whatsoever. Anyway I built this PC back in 2014 and it was pretty decent for the time. I'm wondering if there are any affordable approaches I can take to either upgrade a few slots, or possibly get a new motherboard and re-do the whole thing. If you guys have any ideas please let me know. This is what I'm currently running and how I have it configured. EQClient.ini - all affinities set to -1 (to utilize all cores of the cpu) 3 monitor setup. 2 DVI's and one dataport using Eyefinity. Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA - UD5 RAM: 16GB (not sure on the details but I can figure it out if it's important) CPU: AMD FX 8350 8 core. 4GHz. Graphics Card: AMD Radeon R9 200 series (4GB) I have the windows 10 OS operating from 1 SSD using SATA3, and I have the EQ directory on a secondary SSD also using SATA3. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
