I have played WOW for about many years now and I built my current computer with the help of a friend who was tech savy more than I. I have been experiencing slow loading screen times and some lag once loaded into instances or the game. But once in WOW my fps and everything runs great 40 man-25man no lag or anything. Here are the specs to my computer I am looking to speed up my loading screen times when I log in or load into instances in the game. Don't really have a budget per say but just looking for ideas that are reasonable besides rebuilding a new computer.
1-Boot up time after I log into my computer takes a while before I can open up the internet, Ventrilo or WOW. Wil get WOW not responding sometimes when I first open it before I can log in.
2- LOading screens for WOW when I load into instances.
I was thinking that maybe I could buy a new SSD and buy Windows 7-64bit and just run WOW on that and use my older HD for the rest of my things for faster load times?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
OS- Vista 64bit
MB is a Gigabyte Technology board
RAM- 8g Dominator
Processor- I2 core duo 2.66 processor
Video- Ati hd 3800 radeon .
HD- 250g I believe
Sounds like you need a SSD to boot windows and WoW off of for quick loading times I would advise go with the M4 Crucial, but then I would also advise a new computer completely
I would love to build a new computer but with as my computer works as is, I would just like to speed it up. I did some research on the Crucial 128g ssd. they have impressive reviews and it looks as though I will be going this root. Now I just need to research how to swap this stuff over with using a new OS but getting rid of my old one but still keeping the stuff on that HD relevant and available to access.
