I want MAX performance on WoW when I Record. ( help please )

Mainboard : Asus Crosshair IV Formula
Chipset : AMD SR5690
Processor : AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @ 801 MHz
Physical Memory : 16384 MBDDR3-SDRAM
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580
Hard Disk : Western Digital WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 ATA Device (1000GB)
CD-Rom Drive : DTSOFT Virtual CdRom Device
Monitor Type : Asus VE228 - 22 inches

My budget is around $500-530

What do you guys think needs a serious change? Some have told me a new processor and i'm not so sure how good my motherboard will run.

I see there is a beta update for it and it can support FX-8150.

Does that mean that http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106011

will probably be the best processor I can get and will it work good with the motherboard?


Does my video card need a change at all? Just help me out please because I am seriously lost with these kinds of things. I just really need a decent change in my setup. I can't even record World of Warcraft anymore because my fps is just so terrible. It used to run fine like over a year ago but now it's just terrible.

  1. That would make no sense.

    Your processor should not have any problems running WoW. -__- it's a very light game

    You don't need to buy anything. There must be some problems with your PC though.
  2. I already reformat my pc to it's original state when it was first made. Yeah WoW might not be heavy on my PC but when I record with Fraps or Bandicam it does. I drop from 40-50 fps to 10-20 fps. It's just not bearable to record with.
  3. Well, if your budget is $500.

    Get an i5-3570k
    with Asrock z77 motherboard

    The pro version is for single cards and the extreme is for CF.
