in BF2142 it ran very very smooth to but the only game that was lagging was WoW and it says i only had like 16-20 FPS this card has to be way better then the Radeon X1300

:blink: what are your settings????

 

35 frames is impossible to play with. You want to have an ideal FPS of 50 and above. I think the 8500 was to rip people off

 

Play with a 9200 radeon for a year.

You will think 30 FPS is the most amazing thing on the planet.

the dual channel should help.

 

what are you using to measure your FPS?

Despite what the boxes say, wow actually is quite a taxing game.

I remember, i used to raid on an old 9200, with minimum settings, and get like 8-11 FPS in MC, and BWL. Even less on certain parts (Broodlord Fight, the wonderful Nefarius Phase 3, and a few more)

 

The most taxing thing is wow, is to make sure that you don't have your terrain distance at max. That cuts my FPS in half, literally.

It's also not really needed for gameplay either. Just set it at the middle setting, not the top, and you will see a dramatic increase in smoothness of your game. Eye candy can be up, but a huge resolution is a no-no. Don't go higher than 1280X1024 unless you have a 8800.

 

What area are you in when you are getting such low FPS?

Obviously areas with more people are going to cause a video card some problems. Remeber the old ironforge at the start of the game? I couldn't ever even go in there. Thats why i went horde side. The 8-1 ratio made it possible to be in orgrimmar without my computer crashing.

:lol:

well i lag every where (i mean i dont lag really really bad) and when go into big citys with alot of people its not bad but when i had my X1300 in i think i wa doing better with that card for some reason.....i dont know but i think im gonna return my 8500 and get the 8600 gts prob but yea i dont see why i should be lagging like this also i WAS playing at 1440X900 on my X1300 and i got the same FPS 16

 

and with this card i get 16fps at 1280X1024

it shouldnt be that low at all though. When my little bro plays, it is at 1280x1024 and the settings maxed and i average at 100 frames. That card cant be that much slower. Check your render options. I think there is a setting that allows the amount of detail and render distance. That may cause issues. Big City=Lots of rendering to be done.

 

I hate playing under 40 frames....it bugs me

if it looks way to bad, then adjust it so your not lower than 30 frames. Also, on my Video card, there is an option that allows me to set it at High Performance rather than quality. Try that

35 frames is impossible to play with.

I want to slap you right now!

 

35 is actually very good to play with. Try playing with 10. 20 is even fine.

kiddo lies. the 8500 is a huge joke. honestly, my bro plays wow on an x1300, full settings, and he averages about 35fps in the most taxing areas. i would trade in that card and grab a 7600 for about 100, and 7900gs are as low as 130 now. btw, im posting from my bros nintendo wii, its cool :filtered:. also the 8500 AND 8600 both phail because nvidia refuses to put higher than a 128 bit interface. 7600s are better, as is a x1300 and higher in both series. the x1950 is quite a steal for the price

 

I'll find some links and edit my post RQ.

Theres a 7900GS

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814102034

1950GT

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814102061

1950PRO

 

Honestly, all these cards will ourperform the 8500/8600.

All have an extreme performance/price ratio.

 

Just for this perspective.

I have 7900GS's SLI'd in my system. My brother is actually spending about a month with me, and was raiding on my system about an hour ago. WoW doesn't like SLI at all, so i had to disable it to prevent crashing. In the cities he had 45+ FPS MINIMUM, and raiding, and in tempest keep, he was running at 130 FPS. a 7900 would be plenty the power for wow.

Herm, yes, but it much be a strech on a 300 Watt PSU.

Let me do some quick research.

7900GS's recommend a 400 Watter, with 20 Amps on the rail.

 

The 1950GT didn't say on the site, but i'm sure another pitster should know.

 

Sorry to say, but i honestly wouldn't try it.

What kind of PSU do you have? If it's a very high efficency one, from a reliable brand, it could happen, otherwise..nah..

 

I would go for a 8600, 1650XT, or even a 7600.

 

EDIT: I did go and plug in your information on the xTreme PSU calculator.

I put in

3000MHZ P4 Prescott at 100% utilization, 2 Sticks DDR ram, 2 7200RPM hard drives, CW-RW/DVD-R Optical Drive, PCI Wireless Card, and plugged in the 1950XT and it recommended a 285 Watt.

i also tried it with a 7900GS and it went down to 265 Watts.

Is there anything else in your system that uses power?

Otherwise a 1950XT/7900GS could be a possibility.

 

The only other problem i could think of is the rail not having enough AMPS, and over time, the taxing on your PSU could take a toll on your system.
