Account Cancelled: Terrible FPS after 3 video cards

Im not paying for a game that I can't play. Literally. Can't do warzones, and I can't do some quests (spaceship quest AKA Javaal Fleet), and world pvp. The most terrible gaming experience I've ever had in my life. Content is good, and I wish I could play it because it looks like it could be fun.... IF it worked as intended.

Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT- 1.2-3fps in Warzones (Unacceptable)
Nvidia GTX 275- 1.2-3fps in Warzones (Unacceptable)
Nvidia 550 Ti- 5-7fps in Warzones (Unacceptable)

AMD Quad Core @ 2.8Ghz
4GB memory

Lowest settings/off settings, 1280x1024 (on 24" monitor). Did all forum-specified tricks (shortcut compaticility, low-high-low, ini tweak, driver sweep, latest drivers, etc etc)

This needs to be addressed and acknowledged. This is appalling.

Is that all over the game or just in fleet/warzones? If its 100% the latter, its a known issue and is being investigated.

Oh.. AND I bought an extra fan that fits in 2 of the pci slot covers right underneath the GPU to give it more ventillation, to address any heat issues.

It happens in all over the world, not just pvp/warzones.

If its everywhere then theres something funky on your system. Have you tried a full clean boot and a full reinstall of all drivers?

This is CPU related and completely independent of graphics card.

I would bet it's not your GPU. My nephew has an old Intel i7-920 2.66 GHz CPU, and a nvidia GTX 260 768mb graphics card! Now this gfx card is freaking old! Still it runs the game flawless on low settings in both space, ground, and PvP.

Seriously, a clean install is not an answer. Why does every tech enthusiast insist that a clean install will help. Don't recommended someone go through the hassle of that ordeal. You know that's not going help.

i am wondering when these "fps/lag" complains will stop a little?
ppl have issues playing on computers wich are very decent...
on the other hand,maybe developers want to make all us "computer speciallists" cause all these days i have read all possible ways to "overclock" a PC... lol
Caution! low iq player (L.i.p.)

Maybe because it's like i've been saying, an unstable OS will just get worse with new software, new hardware and drivers.

Usually that's the last thing to do. I was running the game on a Core2Duo 2.66 with 8gb of ram witn no FPS issues at all, but after a fresh install of Windows on the computer.

My new machine, more than enough to play the game, fresh install of windows no problems at all with FPS anywhere I go

and this is with an ATI 5770 video card.
