Wondering if you guys could help me, I purchased a Dell XPS 8100. i5 dual core, 6 gigs, RD 5450 HD, which I play World of Warcraft on, I 25 man raids I get FPS in the 30s to 40s on overall low graphics settings, is my video card the problem? I think the ram and processor are fine, any feedback would be appreciated, also if it is my card, any suggetions on a good one?
also my psu is 400w, first answer was base specs, my cpu was custom, sorry for confusion
Your CPU is custom? I believe you mean the PC itself is a DIY build. But then again, you said it's a Dell. Contradictive...
Well, non-issue anyway. For that resolution at least get a 5570 (Tom's recommendation) or better, a 5670 with 1GB of memory size. If possible, I highly recommend a good quality from well known brand PSU rated at 450W minimum for the 5670. Since the power consumption is not too far apart compared to the "Green" 5450, a 50W extra headroom will do just fine. The quality of the PSU itself is the one in question, since with a crappy one, it can take the other components down the grave with it. Literally.
