I plan on playing TESO whenever it comes but I dont feel like my current computer build wont hold up. I am currently getting about 40-50 fps in WoW and a lot less - 20 or so whenever I raid or bg's. (and this is all on the lowest settings) I am wanting to upgrade for TESO so I can actually play it with at least half decent settings and still have a at least 40-50 FPS whenever I am playing with a larger group although I really dont want to spend more than 500
- 700 on upgrades or to build a new computer. I understand that the system requirements for TESO have not been released but I was hoping someone could maybe compare it to how skyrim performs on PC.
So my main questions are,
1. Will $500 - 700 even build a new computer or upgrade my current one enough to play TESO or Skyrim?
2. And if so, would you recommend trying to upgrade my current system or build a new one? Such as the $500 dolphin build of the month posted by mmo-champion.
