if u need full spec https://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c0...
Anyways i got this at 2009 and im wondering whats bottlenecking me ever since i got this computer i could bearly play any games on med and at low settings i would still get lot of lags and unplayable at 1~5 fps in crowded areas. or lets say games like Rift i wud get 5 fps questing same as wow in lowest settings and in anime games i get very low fps in area with lots of mobs or people
i ordered i5 3570k cpu and asrock Mobo with 8gb ram ddr3 how much improvement can i see with this system i ordered?
I'm currently running a GTX 460 1GB 256-bit, i5-3570K and 8GB RAM. I upgraded from a Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 3.1GHz and saw huge performance increase in games that are more CPU bound and are not well multi-threaded. I overclocked my card to 890MHz on the core. Here's what I got in some games
Assassin's Creed III (Max settings, AA medium)
Avg: 47 fps
Min: 36 fps
Yeah, it's clearly your CPU that's bottlenecking the card. Most games (older ones) are not optimized to use more than 2 cores and 2.1GHz is too slow. You'll get huge increase upgrading to an i5-3570K, trust me.
um i think its both especially in rift n wow low n high is same maybe lil higher fps and im scarred playing in low fps so much that i dont think i can get a system. to get even 35 fps normally bc i have been playing with shyt comp for so long even my cuzzins house haha never played a game with 20 fps mi imum im hoping this upgrade will have good minimum fps
