Been a while since I posted in here.
I have been playing Second Life on this machine for about 10 months now and it was all pretty good until recently. For some reason I am not getting good FPS (sometimes below 10). I have installed the newest Nvidia driver dated 01/27/2016, but it is no help.

I keep AF on 2x controlled by application...draw distance is at 304 (I know lowering it will improve performance, but I had it as high as 525 without trouble...304 is as low as I like to go)

If anybody has suggestions I would be appreciative.

Thanks in advance
Low FPS in SL, or any of the virtual worlds, is caused by many factors. Your issue could be viewer related or server side. An other thing that effects it is the route from your rig to their servers. Do you clear your cache often? Have you tweaked your bandwidth settings in the viewer. Have you tried using a different viewer?
Sadly, unlike other games user created virtual worlds don't have cookie cutter settings that improve performance.
