    Blue screen and crash on Ultra High

    Hey guys, I played lotro today on the pc I just finished building. It runs great on Very High and usually stays between 20-40 FPS, the CPU stays under 15% usage, and RAM was under 30% in the Rohan regions.
    But when I tried to go to Ultra High, a few minutes later I got a blue screen, and then the pc restarted. Is Ultra just too much for my setup? Or is there another problem?
    Here are the specs:

    Gigabyte Z77X Motherboard
    Intel Core i5-3350P
    16GB RAM
    AMD Radeon HD 7790 graphics card
    1TB hard drive
    Corsair 850W power supply
    Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit)
    22" 1920x 1080 Asus monitor

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    What sound card are you using and what is the error displayed on the blue screen?

    As it is a new build, I'd go with there likely being a need to update drivers and check windows update.

    Make sure everything is seated correctly, especially the memory.

    (Also, if you build another one, and can find one for about the same price as the 3350P you might consider the 3570K (and a cooling solution). It's not a lot faster than yours, normally, but it is unlocked, and overclocked it would be considerably faster and would extend the life of the build a tad.

    Still, the 3350P should be _good_ for LOTRO and if you sink more money into this build then I'd strongly advise installing the system on one partition of a ssd and LOTRO on another and/or getting a stronger graphics card. Something on the level of a 660 Nvidia or HD 7870 or above should give excellent response. As a general rule, the graphics card should be the most expensive part in a gaming computer, although you can certainly build in steps and get the better card later.)

    Oh and yes audio cards can cause issues... try disabling EAX in the LOTRO options.

    and make sure you have the LOTRO launcher and client (especially the client) added as exceptions to your firewall/virus real time scanning/internet software to avoid further issues.
