Direct X and moar
Hey all! Ok, Few questions here. Obvious answer is..... get a new computer.... Would love to but cash is short right now...
Ok... My system is extremely old. Dell Dimension 3000 desktop... 3.0ghz single core 2gb Ram Win XP and a integrated vid card that will make you cry..... Played on it for many years. 1) What is the highest version of DirectX i can d/l with Win XP? Right now and im not sure anything can help but i have to play on the lowest of low settings possible... I'm not even sure how to check to see what version of DX I currently have.. Would a more recent version make a difference? In Orgrimmar i get about a max of 8 fps..... Heroics are getting to be laggy to tank... 10m only thing ive done in caty is BH. Now I used to raid regularly all the way til ICC came out and then all of the sudden I couldnt play in 25m. 10m ICC was ok. 25 ToC and all them before... Naxx and Ulduar were fine to go into and my system woudlnt drop to 1-2 fps .
Is there any other things that I can do to improve my performance? I shut everything off that I can while playing.... I dont play in windowed mode.... I'd like to get my FPS up to a non laughable number if possible...... and have the game run a little smoother when doing pidily stuffs until I can get a comp upgrade.... Any and all help is mucho greatly appreciated.
