Download and install SIW the free version is enough. Then after installing and running please click on the Video heading under Hardware on the left hand side. This will tell you what graphics card you have. You have posted HD 5800 this is the series not your actual graphics card.It could be either a 5830/5850 or 5870.Are you using Windows 7 if so is it 32 or 64 BIT? What frames per second are you getting now?

You might find this useful. Speckie.

Sorry but what does on 25man full graphic mean?

You should be getting a decent framerate with that card and upgrading would not necessarily be cheap. You only have a small amount of RAM for 64 BIT Windows 7 so you could look at adding more. What size monitor are you using? I cannot really advise further till I get back to my desktop, changing cases,PSU and graphics card at the moment. But will have a look later.

i mean 25 man raid group on full grafic and 6gig ram not enough?

You put 2.95 system memory.

Anyway your card can easily handle W O W and you should get top frame-rates, see hereHd5870 and W O W. According to that you should be getting 97fps with 8x AA on a 24 inch monitor.

I presume your PC is a Medion? It would be helpful if you could give the model number which you will find on the PC somewhere.
