Hey guys well I started playing the new star wars mmo Star Wars The Old Republic and i notice i have very low fps about avg of 7fps in a big city with lots of ppl and i notice it stays same on high and low graphic settings. also it lags other times like in pvp. I used to play wow and didnt lag and i would have high settings and much better fps.
Mmo's use a fair amount of cpu power. You could do for an upgrade for sure. If you have the funds jump on one of the outgoing phenom II quads before they are sold out. With the latest bios you could fit one of those or even an fx I think, though I recommend the phenoms as they are known to perform better in gaming then the new bulldozer chips. The rest of your specs seem fine to play, I'll bet you see a nice difference with a better cpu.
I see in your specs you have 4G ram but ddr2? is that a typo? if not i would prop say an upgrade to ddr3. Im no pro by any means, and i havnt seen or played star wars mmo yet. I used to play age of conan and it was pretty ram hungry, so im just guessing here may be a ram issue, and kinda sounds like ur having a latency issue too. But like i said before im no pro so dont go hating if u disagree on my coment
