Hey guys, im really getting a lot of problems with this ''graphic card'' if I can evel call it that, considering my previous pc with an Intel HD 2000 had better performance lol.
I got this PC fixed, due to a bad hard-drive, and I have a E7500 CPU, 6 GB RAM DDR2, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bits.
Im aware of the bottleneck, but come on? 15 fps on open field on WoW?
Really?
What is this and how do I fix it '-'?

i had the same cou with a gt 220 and 4 gb ram and got 20+ fps in 25 man raids... try updating graphics drivers, windows updates, direct x (use correct version) and play with the vertical sync and other setting to even out fps in the ingame settings.

I have everything updated, honestly im pondering the possibility of it being a bad card, which I'd have to send to RMA.

What graphic settings are you playing at? And your CPU is certainly hurting your performance. The 650 Ti shreds WOW without any issues on a good CPU.

are you using direct x 9? 10? 11? be sure to use the one the game is optimized for. in cata i had to go back to 9 to get better performance also test the ram... remove 1 stick and try it out then the other then both. if 1 stick is bad it will affect it. you have 6 gb is that tri-channel? does the mobo and OS support tri-channel? dual at 4gb or 8gb is best. if tri isnt supported the 4gb in dual will slow by 2gb in single and you are playing effectively at 2gb functionality. or bad card is possible

the e7500 is a core2 duo 2.93 ghz 2 core and is great for WoW solid single core performance and wow favors strong single core performing cpu's like the i3, i5, core2 duo cpu's. its not the cpu stopping him

Considering that you're using a very low end CPU with a mid end GPU, the gpu could be bottle necked by the CPU. Also, WOW isn't a gpu intensive game at all, it relies almost entirely on the CPU for FPS and whatnot. You can troubleshoot all you want, but I'm going to go ahead and say that your CPU is causing the issues.

I don't know if they changed the engine much on wow but I know it was quite processor dependent back when I played. My gtx 460 maxed it out with an i5 750 but I was also in 1680 x 1050. That card should be more than enough

What should I do then?
RMA?
Replace CPU?
Fast Edit-
On low I get like 100-something fps but on ultra...

Just to double check, your PC recognizes the GPU correct? As in it's installed correctly, drivers installed, whatnot?
Take out the GPU and run the game, do you see a difference in FPS vs when the GPU is running?

Yes, it recognizes the GTX 650 ti, how am I supposed to take out my gpu??

Turn down the settings then, it's obvious your rig can't handle those settings. The GPU can, but your CPU cannot. i used to get 60fps with a 6850 (little below the one you have) and a fx-6100 on High settings.

Really? on my mate's rig (HD 7790, E8500) he can get 50-60 fps steady on open field in WoW(ultra), I have a slightly worse cpu but mine is overclocked @ 3.2 Ghz..

I tested this flying over Stormwind. Anything open field is still intensive depending on viewing distance but not close to cities.

2 cores at 3.2 is more than enough for WoW so is the gpu. is the OC running stable? if you can monitor it you may need to dial back the OC to level out performance.even stock 2.93 will work. may also re-install WoW to debug/unglitch it as i have seen that occur also

Damn, I noticed the download level was just at 45%, I tought it was 100%, maybe it's because of that.

yes your main content is there but all the little stuff that makes up 30-40% of the game isnt there. so for gameplay will be choppy
