Here's my computer, i would like some info.. i know i am not running at it full capacity and will need some guidance. i find it hard to find specific info on here by searching.
Now my Issue, the only game i play is World of Warcraft. this set up should be able to play it Ultra and it's not.
I have to put it to fair to be able to Reach the 35 fps. when going to Ultra is bad 5fps.
What i was thinking that is slowing me down is the Ram, Power supply?
Just wondering what would you consider upgrading to run World of Warcraft at Ultra.
Am sure the PS and RAM are an issue, can the card Handle Ultra ? i know i can also upgrade teh CPU, also would it make a big difference if i wanted to keep this board putting a better cpu on it what can i put on ?
Motherboard BIOSTAR N68S3+ V6.0 Chip model MCP61
CPU AMD Athlon 2 x4 635
Video Card: Gigbyte AMD Redeon HD 6450 GDDR5 not sure how much ram ill look when i get home from work.
Ram: 4 gb Dual channel DDR3 @ 659 Mhz ( 9-9-9-24) not sure what kind ill have to look as well.
HD: 2tb WD
Power supply is very generic with a cheap case. ill get more info when i get home.
Using windows Home 7 Premium
if i am missing anything please ask and i will try to give you as much info as possible
I'm no expert on WOW, but that setup is certainly not going to run anything on Ultra settings. Your biggest bottleneck is your GPU. That 6450 is very entry level, if you expect Ultra you might as well order a new video card. Also, your cpu isn't exactly a powerhouse.
Honestly, if you expect to get to Ultra settings, you might as well start over. Good luck.
So i am in Ottawa ,on Considering Pricing.. what would you guy's build as a mid level gaming Rig.
The 7770 is affordable.
CPU/Motherboard id go amd cheaper
Ram be my guess
i have the HD and drives
i need a case and PS.
I guess i could find all this here am sure but if you guy's have free time and can set me up with something i be happy and follow instruction i play wow but it's not a big deal i dont want to spend crazy
For cpu/motherboard, you can choose intel core i3-3xxx. It's not much more expensive than amd. In fact, it could cost about the same. Probably more power efficient too, so it's much cheaper to run in the long run.
RAM is 2x4GB DDR3 1600. Any brand will do. Get the cheapest and low-profile ones like Corsair Vengeance Low Profile.
For power supply, find the cheapest by Corsair, Seasonic or Antec. They have to be in ATX format, because most cases are only compatible with this size.
Case? Depends on preference.
NZXT Source 210 Elite, Fractal Design Core 3000 (the new ones with USB 3.0), Corsair Carbide 200R are good options for mid-size casing.
Or... do you want to build in smaller casing? If so, get Coolermaster Elite 120 as your casing and a mini-ITX sized motherboard.
