£70 for a e8500 is far less cost then a amd set up and same speed also wow is cpu dependent so bigger gpu wont do anything that i do know i went from an 8800gtx to a 550ti and well nothing in wow improved only added sx11 ability
problem has been found. i tried the 550ti no fps improvment. i then tried the e8500 in her system with the 8600gt frame rates jumped to 80fps everything low and 1024x768.
so the search starts for a qx6850 for me and she has my e8500 or we get a e8500 as cheap as possible for her.
cheaper and lower ability hence i moved away from amd and to intel and nvidia.
i can try testing tools but i have feeling with the age of the systems im gunna find it hard to find systems to compare to
yes i think it was a latest update for the new expansion no extra settings that i can...
tell me about it what i was afraid of.
dont get many gamers in my area that have the kinda specs that spares would be better then her system and well i only replace parts that go bang or stop working in mine thanks for the help anyway was hopeing some one might know a few tricks
she only on xp 32bit so another 2gb of ram be a waste i tried her on windows 64bit and my god was that a head ach.
better gpu crossed my mind as a first thoght aslo but then i woundered if the cpu might hold her back plus she only games on an old crt monitor at 1024x768 could try 1280x1024...
ok i have a girlfriend who plays wow but there fps is low sub 30 and 1fps in 25man raid
cpu 2.8 pentium d
memory 2gb ddr2 800
graphics 8600gt 512mb
1tb sata hdd with 32mb cache
all settings low res 1024x768
she has had this pc for alot of years since 2007 if i remeber...
i think for me the qx6850 and a 560ti should do me for as long as the 8800gtx has unless games take a real leap again forcing me to move up i know i needed to upgrade when battlefeild 3 was limited to about 40fps but this could of been down to only haveing a e8500 i know end of day i need a quad...
i been trying to improve my communication skills for the past 30 years by mouth perfect writern no chance.
yeah i get what you mean they is always going to be some bottle necks some were but eliminating the biggest one makes all the diference
i dont know if this is the right place to put this but here goes.
i was led in bed last night and it hit me if i run a tool that can read cpu gpu ram and read and wright speeds of hdd.
i should then be able to know what component is holding a system back to a point.
my idea is play a few...
my monitor is 60Herts, max res 1680x1050, do you think that with the e8500 and the gtx560ti i should easy get the 60fps, i will move to the qx6850 when one come along at the right price for the games that can run more then 2 cores. but id just like to know if i would be safe for how i game i...
well my 8800gtx has died rip my old friend.
i haven't got much money to spare so what would be the best card to go for with out needing to upgrade my cpu.
my system specs are in my sig i game at 1680x1050.
i would like somthing that would be an upgrade from the 8800gtx for good fps in games...
