Lmao it was demanding two years ago, haha I remember the tweaks, the addons, the fixes, everything.
Now only a few years later the game can be easily run.
Now I'm skeptical that you can max it out on a 6800.
Hehe I'm hoping the guy isn't using this time to edit the video, making it look nice and smooth

"maxing out" generally means 60fps.

at max settings*


60fps because that is generally accepted as the framerate where any increase past it is unnoticeable, or barely noticeable, by the human eye/brain.

I would agree for most games.
But for a "Slow" (You could say, not too much things going on at one time) I think 31 is good, it's a good speed plus, like I said, leeway for framerate drop.
Jesus this guy is making on Hell of a video.

What's your budget and what resolution/settings do you play WoW on?

And what framerate do you consider "good"? :P
