My wife has a stock(aside from a ram upgrade.. she has a total of 2GB now) E Machine W3052. She is complaining about the latency while playing World of warcraft. I want to suprise her with a new video card to increase the quality of her game experience.
according to Blizzard the recommended video card is either an ATI Radeon X1600 or a Nvidia GeForce 7600GT.
My question is will her system be able to handle either of these video cards (or maybe one a bit better) ?
The system specs are as follows
CPU: AMD Sempron™ 3000+ Processor (512KB L2 cache, 2GHz, 333MHz FSB)
Operating System: Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Home SP2
thank you for your candid answers. I guess now the only question remaining is do I spend the cash for a graphics card to "hold her over" until I can afford a new PC, or just listen to the complaints in stoic silence
I take it you're in the UK, vince?
Are you confusing latency with low frame rates? Poor latency is down to the internet connection, low frame rates are not.
actually no .. I'm Pennsylvania.
tha problem is even with her video settings turned down low there are certain places in the game (mainly major cities like Dalaran) where she gets disconnected every time she tries to go there. Anywhere else she can play fine, but as soon as she hits a "high traffic" area ... *ploop* ... disconnected.
