I sold my old PC in need to get more FPS on WoW. Here's what i got :
MSI P965 lga775 mobo
MSI NX7600GT vga
2x512MB Corsair value ram 667 MHz
Intel Celeron 2.53 GHz cpu
HDD 40GB Maxtor
those 2 below because of money shortage.
Now i get 9-10 FPS in raids with 1024x768 with no other effects and i was getting more on my old PC which was AMD 2500+ Barton/Soltek nf2/2x512MB 400MHz/asus geforce 5700/. Whats the bottleneck? I have just few more bucks to spend. Help plz.
Ok. What I reccomend you do before taking my word that it's the processor and forking over a couple hundred dollars for a new one is to set up some performance counters in windows. These will tell you how bogged down certain parts of your system are.
Thx for the links m8. I actually discovered that my sound card was making trouble. When i turn off sound in game the FPS goes up somewhere in 30-40. I even tried with ALL video options high and it still stayed 30-40. Thx again.
