Because it doesnt meet the minimum requirements for this game. This game is not any of those other mmo's that were made years ago for old computers.

This is a modern game designed to run on fairly modern technology.

You will have to upgrade or buy a new system to play this game.

Sorry

What do you mean by other MMO's? Cause with those specs even WoW will lag for you.
I'd hate to say this, but you're in dire need of new hardware.
Played WoW for 5 years, SWG for 3 years, Rift for 6 months, AoC for 4 months, Aion for 2 months, Sorc Wars The Old Republic for 2 months.

Thankyou for your help and time

You cant play wow with 60 fps with that system. Unless you are running on extreme low settings and in OpenGL mode. And even then your system would barely push 30.

It helps your case if you don't lie to people that are trying to help you.

GPU would have no effect at all. His system is well under the recomended requirements to even start the game up

Because your system is incapable of that. You might get 60 fps on the very rare occasion when you are looking up at the sky on absolute low settings and your system doesnt have to render much, but i guarantee that you don;t get that constantly.

Arguments aside, this game is designed for modern systems. Your system is pretty old.

As i said before, you need to upgrade or more likely buy a new system to play this game.

It might not be the news you wanted to hear, but thats how it is.

Sorry


Edit: If you want me to go into even more depth i can, although it would be pointless as you would ignore it completely and try and blame bioware for not catering to people who refuse to upgrade their systems.
