    As far as the addons go, it also depends on what type of addons they are, because not all of them are equally demanding, but they usually do not cause a huge difference unless you really overkill it with them.

    Now as far as the video settings go, if you want smooth frame rates in 25 mans you will have to dip down to low/medium video settings and pick a medium resolution because your graphics card is pretty budget.

    Check the sticky if you need any further advice/tips on how to improve your frame rates.

    Alright ty, yea im used to the lowest of the low settings on PoS pc i have now hence why im upgrading. As far as addons i use only omen and dbm on the pc i use now but i was wondering if i could run like atlas loot, recount, omen, dmb, and a xpearl at the same time.

    Those addons shouldn't cause any problems, though if you want to cut down on memory usage, I recommend you use Skada instead of Recount. Because of the way it handles the data, Skada doesn't even come close to Recount's memory usage, especially in 25-man raids.

    That GPU is exceptionally weak, it will be your first upgrade and make a decent difference.

    Is skada's setup the same as recount? Like configuration wise?

    It's not exactly the same of course, but Skada does have similar features.
