From 50 fps to 11 fps in GW2

I use the PC configuration from my signature. The only game I play (and will play) is GW2. Now, in town / dungeons / etc, with medium / high details I have close to 50 fps.

when I go to World vs World for PvP (a place where many players can be found, often in big numbers and all using flashy spells) my frame rates drops to 10-11 fps, and makes the game unplayable.

I would like to know, if possible, what causes this drastic loss of fps: is it the old video card, is it the i3 or is it a combination of something?

Thank you.

More about from
  1. That area uses alot of your CPU.
    And your i3 is weak for that.
  2. how can you tell is the CPU?
    why would the CPU be used for that?
  3. There are some games that depend on the CPU.
    Like Skyrim and some other Online Magic-War games (I'm less familiar to them.)

    And weak CPU cause your performance to dip in the areas where many people come.
