I know my computer is fairly out of date but I figured it would perform better than it did in Warhammer. I could not move a step without lag running the game at the best performance setting. I use to play WoW without any lag on an older video card, I realize it is a lot easier on a system than Warhammer but I didn't feel it would be that great of a difference. I am able to play LOTRO without hardly any lag as well, haven't tried with the video card upgrade. To prepare for Warhammer without building a completely new machine I upgraded the video card from a 7800GTX to a 9800GTX+.
I am not looking to rebuild the complete machine. I was trying to get a little more life out of the PC. I am thinking maybe it is bottle necking at the CPU possibly. I did notice a lot of hard drive activity during play but I really don't feel like upgrading from WinXP 32 bit to add more RAM. I am thinking the 2GBs of RAM will be okay. I have defragmented the hard drive and the issue persists.
I did not see the latency meter in game, to verify my connection speed is okay. I have DSL lite, usaully is sufficent for most games. This might possibly be part of the issue if it takes more bandwidth then LOTRO or WoW.
ISP service speed: 768 Kbps/128 Kbps
My PC specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+
Video Card: Asus 9800 GTX+ 512MB
Motherboard: Asus A8N-E
RAM: 2GB DDR400
OS: WinXP 32bit
I appreciate any ideas to what I should upgrade or do to improve performance.
