what can this card run wow on
while a comparable price range card's memory is 72 GB/s The Radeon HD 7750 for $110-$125
Suprisingly, Sounds better than it runs, while good enough for this game i guess. Not really the best in that price range.
You could see 60 FPS, in choppy situations it could and probably would dip down alot.

Yeah, on ultra with my GTX 560 I get about 60-120 FPS (drops down to about 60 during boss fights, with no noticeable video lag.)
The Geforce GT 640(GDDR5)) scored 2410
The Radeon HD 7750 only scored 90 above the Geforce 640
But....This Radeon HD 7770 wins with the score of 3400 for around $130 at newegg.
Not sure if that helps. Hopefully
I have a custom PC that uses Intel i7 2700k and it runs at 5Ghz easy. There's far less lag than at stock speed. Most computer tops out at 3Ghz stock speed.
Besides, its a balancing act, You cannot have the best processor and a POS video card and expect great results.
now if you really want something fast go with the Radeon HD 7850 Blows them all away by a long shot....scores over 6000 and costs $180 on newegg..
Um he was asking for graphics card advice, and how the heck do you figure wow isn't vdieo intensive? ITS A VIDEO GAME, of course its graphics intensive lol.
Wow actually puts so much more on the CPU than the GPU, please know what you're talking about before you post.[/quote]
Im sorry but you are wrong again, How much more a video game puts on a CPU than a Graphics card has nothing to do with this not being a graphic card driven game, Of course you need a CPU for a graphics card to run, just like you need an Operating system to play wow, that doesn't mean you can just get a really super CPU and a super low end graphics card like some of these onboard ones and jump in a 25 man raid and be happy with the visuals. Bottleneck works both ways lady. Your very confused.
Infact its the opposite, a really good video card helps your CPU do other tasks with less stress, there-fore increasing overall system performance during high stress situations such as 25 man raids. :P
I use Logitech G15 to show many things and when I set to display the CPU and GPU usage, 2 CPU cores are maxed but maybe 10% of GPU is being used for WoW.
Keep in mind that WoW is based on 8 year old spaghetti code that were originally optimized to run on CPU more than GPU. Back then, some of the top GPU were a mere 256MB 128bit on AGP slot. The core code has not been fully redone to take advantage of modern technology, which is why WoW never takes full advantage of your newest top of the line $1,000 video cards. Other games that are coded recently will work far better with superior GPU and decent CPU. WoW still works better on superior (and especially well overclocked) CPU and a 4 year old video card.
