    What kind of video card do you have?

    Most newer high end video cards require alot more power than 400 Watt.

You can bet that the power supply is NOT pushing out what your PC is demanding. When there is a change in the game that pushes performance, the video card draws more current to process the frames at the speed of the game. (I'm assuming that you do not have a SLI rig). And of course it is a HUGE problem with the RAID. For one, having 2 hard drives writing and reading at the same time takes TWICE the power all the while trying to pump out graphics. More than 2 hard drives, and your PC probably won't even boot (and if it does it will shut down because of overdraw on your psu). My suggestion is to get a MINIMUM of a 650 watt psu, as long as you're not running SLI. If you are running SLI, I would go with a 700 watt or better. But just remember, you get what you pay for. A great DEAL may not be so great in the long run!! Good Luck!!!

Cant even run wow >.> ok, I just bought a gaming

Whats your FPS in wow? (Can be seen by hovering your mouse over the Game Menu sign (the questionmark)).

Is it only low in cities with a lot of players or is it just low overall?

Nonetheless lowering the graphics will obviously help.

Just press Escape to enter the Game Menu, and then press System, and go to the Graphics tab.
You could lower the overall graphics by taking the slider down, but I believe the most important things you should do would be:

Multisampling: 1
Shadows: Low
View Distance: Fair or Low

I would also lower Texture Filtering and Texture resolution.

The thing is I am not entirely sure how the things will change when you use the slider, but I would definitely recommend just trying to slide all the way down at first. If the settings I mentioned above are higher than I posted, I would put them down as well.

Especially Shadows can be a real FPS killer.
The View Distance has no real affect and is just for the looks.

Your PC should be able to run WoW fairly well if you adjust the settings. If you wish to increase the performance without lowering the settings I'd recommend buying some more RAM though.

Anyway, tl:dr:

Press Escape to enter the menu, click System -> Graphics -> turn the slider all the way down to Low. Make sure the shadow settings is in fact on low as well. All the settings under the Effects tab can all clear up some fps if lowered/disabled.

Have some problems with my asus extrema ax550 card (512mb) ... if i check a systemrequirements site for example it says a lot of game has to work perfectly in my computer but if i...

So from can i see this card does not have really any true online ratings. However to let you know lag can come from a lot of different places. Memory, processor, having a slow FSB on the motherboard. I mean a lot of thing can play into these problems. You would have to provide a full system build out of what you have to try to troubleshoot any problems not just this video card.

Web cam works, and the microphone works but not toghether when you use both together it doesnt work

The issue could be the fps for your webcam video is low, and the audio continues playing while the video lags a bit. Try going to this free webcam test site. Record yourself for 15-20 seconds and then play it back. Your webcam fps rating will appear below the play back window. If it is less than 10 then your webcam isn't very good and you might want to invest in a better one with a higher fps spec. If the result is more than 10 then your webcam is fine, but the service provider you are using is lowering the bandwidth causing a lower fps result. The only thing you can do is to switch service providers. I hope this is helpful.

Lag lag

Have you tried to review the systems requirements for Windows 7? In case you don't, try to review this system requirements and see if your PC falls in. If not, then its the primary cause of the "lag" computer.

If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Lagging bad on internet low FPS rate

Lag problems wont be anything to do with your monitor, more driver problems or an incompatibility with your new card. Try getting up to date drivers and contact their tech support (the graphics card) and give them your system spec. They will advise if the card is not compatible. This is not about the Windows version, but more about your RAM/HARD Drive speeds.

Also, if your PC had, prior to this install an on-board graphics chip then this can cause problems such as this which cannot often be fixed - try ensuring the onboard graphics is switched off on the BIOS if you can.
