So here's the deal; as of MoP my computer started to mini freeze at times in raids or bgs, with those freezes being no longer than 1 or 2 secs and not really often. Recently it started to become worse and I'd say they come at least once every 5 minutes starting to annoy me. What I'm wondering is if its due to my old PC ( prebuild, Q6600, HD 3870, 3GB ram) or if its some problem with wow, installation folders being loaded or something. I'm basically playing on custom low (only view distance on ultra since that doesnt matter so much in instances) setting since MoP, knowing that the exp brought higher system requirements.
A side note as to how bad shit's getting, whenever I or another person uses the hunter ability stampede it freezes from 1 sec (solo) to i believe 5 secs+ in LFR. Short version: Time to get a new machine?
