My FPS is 10-12 (according to FRAPS) on a moderately crowded screen (~10 people). I tried all kinds of SLI profile and regedit tweeks, nothing helps. My current ssystem is: i7 920 OC@3.8 evga x58 motherboard 6gb ram 2 Geforce 285GTX SLI onboard sound Win7 64bit All drivers and directx updated. FFXI is so old. Even my old system held at 30 FPS (FFXI is capped at 30 FPS) with 30 people on the screen with all graphics cranked to max and with 2048x2048 background res. Old machine: E6600, 2GB ram, 2 Geforce 8800GTS SLI, evga 680i, WinXP 32bit. I dont understand what is wrong here. I googled all over the place with no clear remedy.
