I'm not liking the sounds of several people having performance issues with STO on Windows 7 - 64Bit.
I'm running Win 7 - 64Bit on a 150GB Raptor with a Q6600 w/8GB and a 512MB 8800GT, though i am yet to be able to comment on any STO performance due to the inability to log in to the game because of "Server is Busy" try again later messages.
According to Cisco, 40% of all computer related issues are user error.
I'm running Vista 64 and on my machine, I'm running max everything and not even a single tear or stutter and the framerate is flawless.
You are one out of like 5 or 6 other people who isn't having problems. Instead of quoting an uncited statistic and ripping on people.. offer a solution. I mean, if you know the answers... you seem to have them all.
