As the title states, I own a AMD Radeon HD 6450 that was a option to choose from Dell when building a Dell XPS 8300 during their after-christmas Sale from January 2012 to February 2012    

 

I purchased a MSI Radeon R7 370 and was told it was duel-boot yet my computer doesn't post so I don't quite know what to do with it, so the question stands, with my ancient card, what are the latest drivers I can get that are officially (or unofficially) supported that will ensure (If at all possible) that I can play World of Warcraft on at least Normal Settings, I am so tired of playing games on the lowest quality and I'd like to experience what I had hoped this PC Build was capable of back during 2012 (and I mean, come on... WoW came out in 2004 and while the textures have improved greatly... I feel I must be doing something wrong because even if I log on too a WoW Server from 2004 with their standard 2004 client, and put it on Ultimate, I still experience heavy FPS drops [Even though it really doesn't matter for something that old])

 

 

 

Some information/Specs:
AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB GDDR3 (I think)
Windows 10 Home
Intel Core I5-2320 2nd Generation
8GB DDR3 RAM (Exact company/model name Unknown)
BIOS - Legacy, no UEFI Support in the near future

Two Monitors, although I wouldn't be opposed to going down to one if I can get a much needed substantial boost.

 

Also while on this thread, maybe someone could provide some well needed insight and potentially help me out with this MSI Card (The R7 370 I purchased) - As far as I was made aware by someone I trust pretty deeply with the Hardware aspect of the newer model cards, this card should have been able to run on a 460 PSU, and when I did a PSU Calculator (Several of them actually) they came back with results near/around 398-411 each time. This is cutting it extremely close, but perhaps someone knows something I don't as to why it would not POST.

 

Thanks,
