Problem is I am running an g3302 mobo that does not support quad core. Also am running windows 32 bit so im stuck at 3gb of ram.
The system requirments are:4GB RAM, up from 2GB.
64bit Windows 7, up from 64bit Windows Vista/7.
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2, up from the Intel Pentium D.
Nvidia 8800GT, up from the 8600.
AMD 4830 512MB, up from the 2600.
I would like to be able to run this game clean with the smallest amount of money, right now I can run on high with 40-60 fps. From the looks of it, I can probably get away with my cpu but barely. I was wondering if a better gpu than the 5670 would be bottlenecked my the cpu, if so, will a better dual core with at least 2.5 - 3ghz make a noticable difference over my e4400 @ 2ghz.. Please help...
Remember least amount of money to sustain my current performance in this game. Hopefully just gpu and psu alone. And I dont think the 6670 would be much of an improvement, thats my only other choice with my current psu.
Im just worried if I upgrade from a 5670 to a 7770 ( or equivalent) It will be bottlenecked by my cpu. If I buy that refurbished computer from newegg and add my 5670 to it, I think the major upgrade is cpu power and ram should be enough to run wow close to max.....I just need opinions, im kinda new at this.
You had a phenom quad, the black edition and a 5770 which is a way better set up than mine, how come your fps was not that much higher than mine. And im surprised that downgrading to the quad 9600 made that big of a difference in wow. Anything above a duo core should not be breaking a sweat with that game.
Still dont know if I should get a new Gpu or just look for a good deal on a good refurbished system.
