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.
Your setup isn't that bad...But if i had to off the top of my head i would say the CPU is holding you back. and make sure you have a set of dual channel paird memory im not sure how resource intensive wow is but if its anything like eq2 I would think you would like to have at least 2gigs of memory and a nice upscale proccesor maybe an intel 2duo if your board supports it and you can afford it
Wait for Intels April price cuts, save back some dough and get a C2D (E4300 or E6300 or something on the "low" end) and add another gig of ram. If you have to choose one over the other, replace the proc first...
