    Dianosis Question

    I need help to determine the most manditory part of the PC I need to replace to increase my speed. I replaced my Graphics Card only earlier this year, And I think i've narrowed it down to my awful ram amount, and my Processor. I need to know what I am putting the old Christmas money towards.

    For WoW processor is probably biggest problem, but you can't upgrade it that easily because AM2+ compatible PhenomII's are getting really rare.

    Basically best upgrade would be 95W model of PhenomII x4 965 but those haven't been manufactured in two years or so, and the more common 125W model will not work with the motherboard you have.

    Although your CPU is old, its not 'that' terrible. To put it into perspective, your Athlon 215 is rated 1592 points by Passmark and my T9400 is rated 1831 points. I get 40-50 FPS in BGs and heroics on PTR at 1920x1080 which is much higher than your 1280x720.

    I would definitely go for a RAM upgrade to 8GB. On older bloated computers, increased RAM makes a huge difference because the OS no longer has to access the pagefile.

    You might get a big performance boost if you reformat your computer. I had a friend who's laptop was feeling sluggish and the onboard wireless no longer worked. The laptop lagged when playing youtube vids. A reformat fixed the performance and wireless problems.

    Pissmark is the worst measure of gaming-worthiness on the planet.

    Upping RAM to 4GB would definitely help, but finding DDR2 RAM has the same problem as 95W AM2+ processors: those haven't been made in years. More than 4GB will do nothing for WoW.


    Best upgrade would be whole new motherboard+cpu+ram which requires allocating about $300 of christmas money. Current gear is so old that it's very hard to upgrade at all.

    At least 'Pissmark' has benchmarks for a whole slew of old parts. You don't find that anywhere else. I'm just using it to show that his system shouldn't be 'that' bad. At the very least, WoW should still be playable at 1280x720 on lowest settings.

    More than 4GB will definitely help in WoW. Not everyone runs a squeaky clean computer. Many users run 100+ processes on their machine because they don't know what to get rid of. As a result, the system spends a lot of time paging the hard drive. Increased amount of RAM helps a whole bunch. A reformat is better, but not everyone is comfortable with that. Without having to reformat, more RAM will alleviate this problem.

    Digital caliper is probably just as accurate measurement for processors in gaming as Pissmark.


    Anyway, if the OP lives in USA:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...CE&Pagesize=20
    Replace the 512 meg stick with that one and you have full 4GB. It will help, but won't do miracles.

    Any proof to back that up? You tend to talk in hyperboles. Sorry if I don't believe you the first time.

    Passmark as a synthetic benchmark gives linear ratings that approximates other benchmarks such as wPrime or Linx.

    Unlike digital calipers, at least Passmark measures performance. Its better than nothing and it gives a better basis for a recommendation instead of UPGRADE THIS UPGRADE THAT, especially if the OPs primary problem is computer bloat and not poor hardware.

    It's barely better than nothing. Passmark is a multithread test which totally ignores effect of CPU cache. You can easily see it from comparing Athlon and Phenom processors of similar speed. It benchmarks everything else except what is important in generic gaming, a) only multicore performance and b) missing L3 cache is not shown on the final scores. Other forum regulars are probably laughing their arses off at you at the moment, or they would be saying about the same about Passmark's relevance.

    UPGRADE THIS UPGRADE THAT is based on actual gaming benchmarks on actually reputable sites I can back up when needed with links. Not on synthetic multicore math tests.

    Bloat might or might not be part of the problem, but the OP asked for upgrade options.

    First off, I never use Passmark to compare gaming performance for any modern CPU. I will always use gaming benchmarks for those. Passmark is used as a last resort. This pretty much destroys your logic right there.

    Second, both the T9400 and Athlon 215 are both dual core with no hyperthreading, there goes your multicore argument. Moreover, neither CPU has an L3 cache this shouldn't be a problem. Again, Passmark is only used for old old old hardware. Never do I compare an Athlon 215 to a 3770K with HT and a large L3 cache. You're the one who should be laughed at because you're deluded into thinking ANANDTECH BENCH OR GTFO.

    Gaming benchmarks from reputable sites are great when they cover the processors in question. As I've said before, the Athlon 215 is only found on Passmark.

    So what you're saying we should ignore zero cost fixes, especially in a highly budget constrained situation, because the OP said so? You said it yourself, the OP has almost no avenues for upgrading due to cost of old hardware. Instead, we should recommend he try a free 'performance boost' before he splurges his Christmas funds on an upgrade that likely brings no performance benefit.

    As a last resort mechanism it's about as accurate as digital caliper, that's exactly what I meant few posts back. Sometimes nothing is better than misleading last resorts.

    OP said he had already upgraded graphics card recently so I assume he's not a complete derp and has considered things like cleaning up crapware from the computer before throwing money at the problem. I might be wrong, but I think it's pretty fair assumption.

    My google-fu must be better than yours, or you just don't look at the bottom half of the first page of results. It was fairly easy to find a benchmark of low end AMD vs Intel processors that includede Athlon 215 and bunch of processors that are present in Anandtech and other reputable review sites. It's not totally accurate when you have to pull comparisons via few hops, but it's better than Passmark.

    Anyway, PhenomII x4 965 95W model is the best processor that can be used with that motherboard, and according to the benchmarks I found it would be doing about 20-40% faster which is not an upgrade I would do. But it's the only CPU upgrade OP has besides scrapping whole thing.

    Adding another 2GB of RAM should be easy and will give some speed boost too. In WoW it probably makes zero difference in framerates but will cut down loading times significantly.

    Honestly I don't have a good view of that PC you're using.. I'm thinking your PC is actually performing like a Pentium4 with nvidia geforceturbo 32MB (10 cuda cores) and 128MB ram which just keeps hanging all day..

    Just post your total budget. Other than just upgrading the cpu, ram & mobo I recommend you to even buy a new psu.
