I just got WoW and I am getting some big drops in FPS, can hang around 12, and even bounce down to 2-3 if in populated towns..
Currently I am running an Athalon 1.33, an Asus a7m266 w/ only 256MB DDR, and an old nVidia GeForce 3 64MB (not Ti).
Currently I am thinking that my processor isn't my problem and that it's my GPU and memory. GPU wise I’m above the minimum (a GeForce 2 32MB) but below the suggested (GeForce FX5700 64MB). I am also meet the minimum Ram (256MB).
I am looking at a MSI GeForce FX5700 256MB 8x AGP for $56.95. I am on a TIGHT budget and thought this looked decent. (Would I have any problems with the 8x AGP as my Motherboard is an older 4xAGP?)
I am also looking to get 256MB DRR ram. The prices I've seen so far are kinda scary and about as much as the video card. I might go with 128, but I feel like it would be a waste and it's not the much cheaper anyway.
Any and all help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
