Cliff note version: Game is lagging, specifically FFXIV I updated the videocard driver, enabled DX11, and used razor cortex to try and help. (seemed to at first, but a few days later the lag returned.) This is a fresh install of windows, I have AV running and have checked for infections, none found. I've turned the AV while playing to see if it contributed. Did the same with other applications... No fixed it. waiting for next move...

It seems to be primarily in FFXIV, but since I mostly play that game it is hard to compare against others fairly. A few hours of LOL seemed to run without any issue though. I have played FFXIV while pinging the local hub for my ISP and google.com (at the same time). During that time the game lagged heavily while the pings remained steady. This along with other players not experiencing the lag issues leads me to believe it is on the hardware or software/driver end. I have taken the following steps to correct the issue, but haven't had a perminent fix yet. Initally the game was running on DX9c (I didn't realize I had to enable DX11), I have done that and run it on DX11 since. My videocard driver has been updated to the most recent update. I also have tried installing razor cortex and running the game with that to help improve the problem, and for a few days it seemed to do the trick... But then the lag came back. I continue to confirm it is only me having the problem and that it isn't an internet issue. My computer is running a fresh install of windows 7, I recently (problem happened next day after install) installed the OS to my new SSD. So this is a fresh windows with Anti-Virus running and I have scanned to confirm. I also have played the game with no extra applications running in background, both with Anti-Virus on and off. Nothing is correcting the lag. Where should I go from here? I would like to diagnose the source of the problem but not sure what's next. Looking for recommendations.
Hi, I just bought a fresh cheap 120GB SSD which I already installed Windows in it, when suddenly had the urge to buy a really affordable 250GB SSD (need the extra storage for Uni) which I have paid and received. Is there steps that I could format the 120GB SSD and replace and install Windows in the 250GB SSD in a safer easier way? Its my first time building PC, Thanks!
