    online games that require b2p then p2p usually have 30days of gametime on first purchase, this is also the case with wildstar

    Exactly. Your version of Wildstar comes with 30 days of game time, and if you can cap out quickly and farm some gold (Platinum), you can buy CREDD and then will never really have to pay $$ for the subscription. ^^
    Current Games:

    Overwatch (NA - PC)
    Battleborn (NA - PC)
    Kings and Heroes (Steam Early Access)

    Waiting for:

    Chronicles of Elyria (PC)

    Small tip on making money in this game. The easiest to get gold on a early lvl is only doing PvP after lvl6. Eventually it will become slow, but if you win a lot of matches you get 2 bags, and 1 of the bags can drop decor items you can sell for 10-30g each. My first char is only lvl18 and I'm actually walking around with almost 200g atm.

    1000g = 1 platinum

    And most CREDD prices are from 5 Platinum all the way up to 20 Platinum. You can't farm all that without maxing out and doing the "Boring" task of farming end-game stuff for selling materials, etc.

    7 Days isn't enough time to Enjoy the game. Sure, you can cap in that amount of time. But enjoying it? No. From what I also understand, guest passes / etc. are unable to use CREDD.

    You can also only level to 20 on a guest pass. Most people say the fun starts around that level (or a bit higher, usually closer to cap).

    I'm lvl21 and I'm close to 40plat.... PvP wins give you a chest that has the possibillity to give you decors that sell for a few plat.

    AMD Processor? If so, that's why. The game is 32-bit but uses a 64-bit client to mask that downfall. Your AMD Processor won't be able to keep up since it isn't single-thread optimized to handle single-threaded games. Your GPU is also terribad.

    AMD specializes in multi-threading. While Intel specializes in Single-threading.

    Oh man haven't heard that amount of drivel in awhile.
    32-bit if that's the case has no bearing on cpu support. The main difference is that programs can't run more than 2gb of ram due to the 32-bit limitation which 64-bit removes (and programs to run faster due to using larger chunks of data).

    In any case looking over coldReactive is right that AMD processors are better at multithreading, but due to their weak IPC their single threading suffers. Though if you were to compare an Intel Processors while they specialize in single-threading they will still win in multi-threading, they are just a tier above AMD. Though the main sticking point is if all you are looking for is to play games (and not stream, edit videos, etc) then they are a more than fair budget option.

    So coolashe my honest suggestion to you is get a new video card if you can because that is your main sticking point. Your video card is so old/bad that I had trouble to even find a similar video card to find a benchmark review. Using just the passmark score (not the best test, but it will work) your video card scores a rank of around 350-400 points. The lowest card I could find from anandtech's benchmark score is around 1500 points. The 270x a mid tier video card is 4500 points.

    www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1043?vs=1078"]http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1043?vs=1078

    Here is the link to the bench using the 5770 vs the 270x just look at the scores of the 5770 and divide by 3 and its probably close to your performance.

    In any case if you want to try a no cost option read up on some guides and try your hand at overclocking your processor if you notice an improvement meant you were probably being throttled on both ends. In any case good luck

    Yea... You're better off with a new PC.
    Your CPU will bottleneck your new GPU making it's performance increase barely noticeable or it'll perform even worse because your CPU is too busy trying to keep up with the GPU.

    Giving this a bump.
    Having been on OnRPG in awhile!

    Still chugging along in WildStar even though the free month is over. Kinda glad that I decided to roll with the people in the N.E.S circle instead of avoiding it. They're a pretty chill bunch, but I know deep down I'm gonna have to join a guild sooner or later....

    I'm still enjoying it but I would be lying to myself if I didn't say that the daily quests and RNG randomness from Adventures weren't kinda annoying. I also hope to god that the memory leaks get fixed soon.

    Anyone else on D-Envirda?
