Hey! My overclocked 650MHz/500MHz GPU with 128MB VRAM is leaps and bounds better than any of that integrated trash!

I will use Resource monitor....when I get to sit down and play. You do know that I spend the majority of my time studying, and when I get a break I'm spending more time tweaking my computer than actually playing on it? rolleyes.gif

PS: For those familiar with world of tanks, the sniper mode FPS drop since 8.0 is a result of mip-map textures loading. I can actually see the squares of smooth and blurry textures being replaced with more detailed ones as I snipe. The problem is during this time, my fps goes down to 8 or lower, my CPU load decreases from 58% (one core maxed) to 16% (8% on the gaming core), the GPU load decreases from 97% to around 85% (so it is fast enough when it comes to coloring the new textures), so my remaining bottleneck is the memory. The HDD light flickers during this period.

Integrated Sandy Bridge graphics is at the level of 8500GT while Ivy Bridge is at the level of 8600GT. Go with AMD Llano/Trinity integrated and you get even better performance. That said, it does seem as if you're bottleneck might be the HDD (on Resource Monitor, pay attention to the disk queue length and response time). Alas, with your budget, don't know how you'll be able to fix it.
