20 fps? Should I kill myself now for buying it or wait and hope ur mistaken?

wait till next month when AMD releases new stuff. this way the stuff youre looking at now is cheaper or you might have th money to buy the new stuff.

Nothing can be faster than light said Einstein.

Translated to WWIIOL, we say : nobody can get more than 20 FPS, except with Quantum proccesors.

So...try the harakiri, seems to work fine. :D

Seems like it should run decent. I'm running basically the same thing but with a smaller cpu and a GTX 260 and I think it runs "pretty good".

Pointless until crs fixes the game to use more then one core...

Like me... I use a crossfire setup that's goin to waste cause the game doesn't utilize xfire or multi cores

Sigh

no, if what he is upgrading runs single threads faster its still an upgrade .. derpa derp

id get double the RAM

really no point unless he does something specific that utilizes more than 4gb.

It should run pretty good

your going to get in the 20's in certain situations just because the game enjoys having the fastest CPU possible because it only uses a single core...I would think that video card to be semi-fast enough not to be too hindered looking at trees which is the hardest thing game does to video cards.

in other spots your going to get over 100 fps

20+ FPS yup.

I have a slightly better computer setup and I run about 20 FPS in medium size town battles... I run 100+ FPS in open field battles that are small/medium... and I run ~10 FPS in hugh city/town battles.

The only thing that will save extend the longevity of this game is if they adapt their coding to make use of multi-core CPUs and SLID'd video cards. They'll be shooting themselves in the foot if they leave this game's coding in the 1990's.

that pc is fine, should get good fps. there is absolutely no reason at all to buy more than 4 gb of ram. im getting around 60 fps with my build and i only have 4 gb of ram

Any other game and you'll get decent fps but this one...ermmmm ya.. probably 20ish in decent fights but in low fighting situations you'll get some good fps.

Try to fight at FBs and you will get 60FPs, in towns 20fps max...

Don't spawn at Antwerp, Brussels, Lier, Aachen, etc...

Thanks for the input fellas. S!

Should be fine for WWIIOL!

Only problem you MIGHT have, is down the road, if you plan on upgrading it with a better Vid card, or even add another one like you got, that 700 watt power supply ain't gonna cut it. You'll need atleast 800 watts MINIMUM for dual cards, but if you go to dual GTX 580's or similar, you'll need 1000watts supply to be safe running them at MODERATE over-clockings!
