World of Warcraft - Extreme FPS Issues
I have been experiencing very poor FPS for the last few months on my system. When in a major city, I get roughly 10-15. In a raid setting I get around 5 during fights.

I have everything turned off/to low.

I have an ATI Radeon X1300 256MB with updated drivers

ABit LR8 MB
Intel 3.2 GHZ
2.0 GB RAM
Run on Windows Server 2003

Wondering what can be done to fix the issue. Not sure if it's the card or something else.

If there is any other information needed, let me know.

ive been getting roughly 20-40 fps in shattrath with BC it may be the server or your graphics card might be malfunctioning . If everything on your comp is set up properly u might wanna try to bypass your router if u use one although fps issues r more of a graphics card problem.
Oh and try to disable your mods

What UI are you running?

Try deleting your WTF folder, and interface folder. Restart WoW and see if it changes.

Do u get normal FPS when out of major city or raid?


Normally just the massive increase in people of being in a raid or major city reduces your FPS dramatically. If you get normal pings when not around anybody then could be your UI.

That's just the thing, I'm not really getting normal fps in non populated areas.
I average around 20-30 outside.

Dont listen to nekolux, he dosnt seem to be that knowledgeable on this particular subject. There are only a few things that can cause FPS drops they are;
- Crap GPU (not powerful enough) + not supported by game
- Adware
- Poor ping (note. lagg)
- Overheating
- Outdated Drivers
- Installation Corruption
- O.S not supported by game

If these have all been ruled out then, try providing a better explaination of the situation plz.

Ping wont effect FPS, it will make you lag, but it wont drop FPS.

yeah err dude ? u arent even giving any ways for him to solve his problem . btw lag IS different from low FPS . you can have a great connection and fps can still be bad . so anyway jdolbeer : check your card , try repair function if not reinstall wow ( i know its a drag , happened once to me when i kept crashing when i enter scholomance ).
oh and btw r u getting low fps with everything else u do?

"Note. Lagg"

Telling him it may seem to be a drop in FPS but its called lagg ok..

And im not giving him solution to solve this problem, because it down to poor hardware OK.

U guys are only giving him info that he probibly has tried at the WOW support web site!

+ this guy hasnt giving nearly enought info to sort his problem out

Conclusion; u guys dont have a clue and this guys needs more money?!

yes i saw the note ' lagg ' but we r just trying to tell u that lag <> low fps .
1st. there r lots of possibilties to problems relating to the computer we r trying to narrow down the options.
2nd. not everyone is filthy rich with money to burn . for all u know it might not be a problem he needs to pay for at all.
3rd. we r here to give advice and offer wadever assistance we can so, lets not argue

P.S ctrl R in wow will tell you your fps

I played WoW on an AMD64 2400+ 1gig ram 128MB ATI mobile card, and got fine FPS. WOW is not THAT hardware hungry.

So what other information do you need from me?

Please stop arguing in my post. It doesn't help.

Just a question, but why are you running it on Windows server 2003? Are you a server for other applications? If this is so, that can greatly decrease performance. Like DNS server or Mail server or anything, will greatly decrease performance.
