E8400 Dual Core 2.9Ghz(4 years old)
GTX460 2gb RAM Vid Card
4GB RAM
Window XP(That's right, still freakin xp!)


And I run this game consistanly at 40fps, in all zones and in pvp. I can get 60-70fps in non crowded areas.

I'd try a new PSU like people have suggested, maybe its not getting enough. Though you;d think a lower power message would appear when you boot up...
It's not his PSU, it's his GPU, well his PSU will keep him from getting a better GPU but the 6450 is a budget card that is crap for gaming.

Well yea, but still 300Watt. Who runs a 300 watt gaming desktop? lol

Just get a new GPU, and new PSU = play better.

Did I misread? I thought his post said he had a i5 GPU...

Headed back to check.

Edit: Its does say i5, which is close to as good as the general market gets. It can't be his GPU unless its faulty...

You don't need more than 300w for a card like that. That's the point.

Did a weekend beta test and it played wonderfully on my pc, yet my pc shows that it does not meet the minimum requirements. I have an Intel Pent E2220 2.4, 8gigs ddr2 and a 9800 gt 512. Ran like a dream on my pc even with firefox open for several hours.

My old pc, (yes this is my newer one) I had a 300W power supply, it was barely able to run my P4 4 gigs with a 9500 video card. When it eventually went out because it wore itself down it took my graphics card with it. I am kinda surprised 300W is powering your system.

You really need to upgrade the PSU. The GPU is indeed the focus on your problems, but the PSU keeps you from doing anything about it.

You could try a 6670 or 6770 but...it'd be a crapshoot.

I wouldn't go as far as some of the other people have recommended, you don't need to spend 300 dollars on a graphics card, or even over 200, but with a good PSU, you could be fine with any choice at a 6670 or above.

Maybe you should try turning off the vertical sync if its on? I know some users using lower video cards had issues with the VS.
