Re: world of warcraft low fps

Turn settings way down.

The reason it does this is because it has to render lots of spell effects and animations and stuff and you're pushing old betsy too hard. Improving RAM and your GPU will help, but by then it's time for a new everything, considering what you have already. Basically your computer is rather in need of upgrading for any serious performance boost. Best thing to do in those scenarios is to just minimize your settings, especially ones marked "Decreasing this value may increase performance" or something to that effect.

On another, semi-related topic, what're you raiding?

I know this post is rather old but I thought Id add a note here for someone who may come across it later like I have. If you are raiding Ulduar and turn down your spell detail you will die. Fights like Hodir, Iron Council, along with other trash pulls and other bosses require spell detail be turned up or you will not see the runes on the floor. We kept telling folks move out of the rune on the floor and they thought we were talking about the light beam on Hodir fight. We wiped 5 times before we were like why do you keep dieing to these ice shards? Come to find out they couldn't see the runes on the floor, their spell detail was turned down. Once they turned it up we killed Hodir :)
