    Addons with lowest memory/CPU usage

    So, I need addons with lowest memory/CPU usage of this type coz I have FPS problems in raids:
    -Damage meter
    -Chat
    -Unit frames
    -HUD (like MetaHUD, IceHUD...)

    Don't tell me to disable them. I really need them.
    Thanks

    Actually, if you put your Unit Frames in a good place, you can totally skip having a HUD. HUDs are only useful if your UF's are way off in a corner. There's a reason a lot of UI layouts have their UF's about a third of the way up the screen, near the center, from the bottom - so it's right under your character.

    Damage Meter? Try Skada.

    Chat? If you're using Prat, I pity you. Chatter is better. BasicChatMods is probably even lighter, but I've never used it.

    Unit Frames? Probably oUF or agUF are the lightest. I've never seen anybody side-by-side comparison them, however.

    Ok, I'll definitely try Skada.
    Chat: I actually tried Phanx it takes 150kB and "no" CPU at all. I'll try Chatter and BCM now.
    I'll also try agUF.


    edit: also which one is lightest Buffs addon (like Elk, Satrina etc...)?

    Bars, or Icons?

    For Bars, I have NO clue.

    For Icons, I'd go with Bison.

    - No HUD, place your UF's correctly and you won't have to worry.

    oUF looks kinda too lame and ag uses a fair amount of resources, anything else? ^^

    Download one of the many many many kickass oUF layouts. oUF can do anything that Pitbull can. It's just not configurable in-game. Anything with a decent amount of in-game customization is going to eat as much memory and CPU time as StUF or Pitbull.

    Thanks for all advices, was really helpful. Now, one last question kinda offtopic.
    What do you think where should I put Grid?

    Very nice I like it.

    How about bottom-right or above chat?

    Bottom right is actually already occupied but bars fade out. I need Grid somewhere where I can see it clearly (center of screen) so above chat is not best place for it.

    I have rearranged it a little, here it is, final version:
