World of Warcraft And Frame Rates.

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
As the title says this thread is on the topic of World of Warcraft Frame Rate performance.

That being stated I have a question:
Can this run World of Warcraft Maxed out with a playable FPS
Link:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883113115 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103217 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103218
I am in a raiding guild so it has to handle raids (25 man).
Only reply if you played and or play World of Warcraft.
No immature off topic comments for this thread.

Thank You for your time.

Please state which would excel with higher frame rates with high settings.

All 3 systems should have no problem running WoW in maxed settings, I can play WoW maxed with my rig and it's not near as powerful as those.

For the same price you can build something more effective - but if it was a choice between the three my vote is for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103218 as the other 2 are using the slow Phenom 1's

My sig rig averages in between 25fps lowest(dalaran and flying through grizzly hills) with max settings(including shadows and vertical sync @ 75mhz) and video card maxed (catalyst AI wide tent 8x-AA and all that other crap). In 25 man raids I usually are between 45-75fps(maxed at 75 due to Vertical Sync) 45ish during fights.My 4850 is Oced from like 650 to 730 though..... Just to use as comparison.

TBCH, I don't thing the 4650 can max shadows and particle density with max AA ect. The 4850 Over clocked to 715+ or a 4870 should be sufficient. Also I would suggest either over clocking (to 3ghz to be in the clear) or getting a faster processor.

+ rep to all who replied with helping me,
that was very nice to see kind people giving me advice,

Nauticus so are you saying if I overclocked the 4650 via the built in ATI drivers.(forgot what is was called.)
That I could do decent raiding frame rates with good settings?

Bear in mind that WoW is mostly CPU dependent, a good CPU is going to yield better results than a good graphics card. Your HD is also pretty important.

Good luck!

Andrew,

WoW is a game that relies a lot more on your CPU than on your video card's capabilities. This is because the game has so much going on at any given time, while not really using high end graphics. Also has something to do with the game engine.

Basically, if you want to get a computer that can run WoW extremely well, as in 120+fps with all settings maximized, while in raids, look for a great processor (i7 920, Phenom II x4, etc).

These computers will cost a bit more, but the results will be outstanding compared to the three computers which you listed.

With that being said, any of those computers would be able to handle the game, but I wouldn't expect superb performance.

This is the abolute best AMD platform for price/performance that I can find. It's a great computer, judging by the specs.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227176

The Intel systems using i7s are a lot more expensive, but probably 5-25% better. I'd recommend the AMD system, however.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...el%20Core%20i7



I'd honestly recommend building your own computer. However, barring that, look for a computer that has a nice processor, a medium-end video card, and a good hard drive. It's a very good thing to have WoW installed on a fast hard drive, for all sorts of reasons.

One more question for you guys,
since WoW is a cpu intesive game,
Is it possible to overclock the cpu on this model?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103218
just front side bus?
also, if i can just overclock teh card and use the system above with mid shadows and detail what raid performance would I look at, I don't have the most money in the world but dont want a computer to get 5 fps in a 25 uld raid.
Thanks guys!

The core 2 Quad, aka the Q8300, can have issues with OCing. For reference, see this.

http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Ha..._q8300_review/

Overclocking depends a lot on the specific motherboard that you've got, and and I really can't say what your specific board is.

It's impossible to accurately say what FPS you would get. There are many factors to keep in mind. Your performance will be quite good though, assuming that everything else checks out.
