why am i only getting 20 fps

More about : wow bad framerate

20 FPS in pacman or crysis maxed out? Help us out here lol.

Also a HD5570 isn't really suited to 1920 x 1080 gaming. It'll really struggle with modern games.

You have a kick-ass system, however that 5570 would really be holding you back at that resolution. Min for good 1080p is either 5850 or crossfire 5770.

20 fps in world of warcraft with high to ultra settings. A lesser pc wit. Exactly the same settings can pull 60 fps.. ill post other pcs specs in a follow up post shortly. The resolution being 1920 might be a partial cause I will try cranking back that to 1680 because on the other pc I am running 1680 by 1050 and getting 60 fps with settings on ultra.

This particular PC gets 60 FPS w/ imo lessor specs than the above mentioned pc with 'exactly' the same settings.

The only thing i can come up with is that the pc with the issue only has a 300 watt power supply and the one without has a 500 watt power supply thats the only inferiority to the system that i can see everything else is superior in every way.

how about the fact that the Gateway has a much better video card as the HD4800 is equiv performance to the HD5700 series which is a lot better than the HD5500 series (the HP)

That's not lesser specs. You got a much better graphics card lol. 4800 series = 5570 x10

The 5570 is your limiting factor - it doesnt matter that the 4800 is the previous gen card - it will flat out smoke the 5570. Of course it does that by not supporting some of the DX11 features like the 5570 can do. But if you try that 5570 will come to a halt...

Get a better vid card....

Oh. I was unaware that the 4850 was a better card I thought for the radeon cards higher numbers were always better. Would the 300 watt power supply run the 4850 ok? Or would I need a 500 watt to upgrade the vid card

The first number for Radeons (and Geforce) cards let's you know what generation it is, the 2nd number is what series. The lower end cards of the new generations are usually slower than the high end of the previous generation, which is the case here.

A 4850 is similar to a 5750 in performance, and you have a 5570, which is a lot slower.

Ah I see. Thanks that makes sense... anyone know about if it would be ok to run a better card off this 300 watt power supply?

Personally I think it's possible BUT that would be majorly stressing the PSU. It's time for an upgrade

You should definitely update the power supply. Most OEMs provide the minimal no-brand pathetic-efficiency power supply for the PC to turn on. The better video cards will require the six-pin PCI-e power connections. The 5570 gets its power from the PCI-e slot, so I doubt you'll even have the connector coming off that power supply. You could use the 4-pin adapter that comes with the new card, but I would suggest a 500-watt or higher power supply to run something more than what you have; especially if you plan to add anything else to the PC. I've seen many 500-watt and higher 80-plus power supplies on newegg for around $40 these days.

Additionally, the higher number Radeon cards don't necessarily perform the better lower numbers. Check any benchmarks where the 5970 (and the 5870 for that matter) beats the new 68xx and 69xx cards' (not to mention nvidias gtx 580)performance with most games. Even 5850s are comparable to most of these newer generation 6xxx cards.
