Completely untrue. I had a PC with a Pentium 4 Processor in a store-bought family PC back when I was playing WoW, using simply the on-board graphics. It lagged on lowest settings when I went into busy areas to 10fps. I went out and bought a Low Profile Radeon HD 4550 which cost me no more than Ã'Â£25. After that, I was able to play on medium settings~ high on some, lower on others and got an average 30-40fps. To say it relies more on your CPU is absolute crap.
I'm going to skip straight to the goods: You're lying. First, it's 100% true it relies more on your CPU than your video card. Second, Radeon HD 4550 card is absolutely garbage. It is very seriously barely any better than onboard video. Yeah, I will admit you MIGHT get 30-40 FPS with that setup, if you were in the middle of nowhere, looking at the floor, at 640x480 resolution. MAYBE it would be possible like that.
It doesn't matter if they're garbage compared to what the average high-end gaming card is, he wants a cheap card that will run it faster than it already does, and it will. The fact the graphics processor will now be independent from the CPU means that both pieces of hardware can run faster and at a higher stability. His specifications were that he wants a card to play WoW on. Of course, it's very easy to recommend the best gpu's out there right now but it's totally unnecessary for a game like WoW. That game is optimised to shit to run on any half-decent store bought computer from 2005 onwards.
He's wasting his money if he buys either of them. They're not good cards, at all, and most of the cards like that below $100 are utter garbage and a waste of money.
Assuming that World of Warcraft would even run at good settings on either of those cards, which it won't, there is also an expansion coming out soon, which I assume he intends to buy, that will increase the requirements even more to play it. He would literally be throwing that money away if he went with either of those cards.
Jesus christ, that's overkill. 6770 will run everything at max at 1920x1080. I had a 5670 that did the exact same thing. Don't recommend someone to pay $80 more than they're willing to for something that they won't need. Sure, if they want a good graphics card for most games on the PC that came out before 2009 or are optimised well enough, go ahead and get a 6770 or something but if you really only want to play WoW just completely ignore all of what he's said.
In world of warcraft, I have all of my settings cranked up to high. In org, I get about 20 FPS if I'm lucky. I'm using the Geforce 550TI, a card slightly better than the radeon 6770.
Requesting a moderator ban this retard for trolling. 6770 isn't even a great card. It's a mid-range card. It will struggle to run every game on high at 1920x1080, especially World of Warcraft.
Tramps, seriously, honestly. Never post again. You clearly have no idea about computers, hardware, and you are obviously lying. I don't understand why, either, but get the fuck out.
