Set Up 1, Pentium 4 2gb ram 512mb video card. This was a HP pc setup, only things upgraded were Ram and a video card added. this system plays wow perfectly at low settings. This is the system i've let my son use.
When bored last week, i decided to reassemble some old parts into a better system for him to use. It has a Pentium D, 2gb video card and 6gb of ram.
Both have WoW set to lowest settings... however.. the first setup easily hits 30fps.. second setup only hits 10-15fps.
How is the worst hardware setup able to play WoW with better frame rates?
