your processor is fine, although its a mobile cpu, its still decent, as usual with laptops its the gpu that is the issue

http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=1008&game=Tera-Online&p_make=Intel&p_deriv=Core+i5-3230M+2.6GHz&gc_make=ATI&gc_deriv=Radeon+HD+7600G&ram=8&checkSubmit=

scroll down to the chart and you will the gpu is gimping you. I started my gaming on pcs with a laptop, I learnt the hard way after dumping £1600 on one that wouldn't run games 15 months later (albeit I worked away a lot so desktop wasn't practical at the time) If you can I would really suggest desktop pcs for gaming

Have you tried dropping everything to minimum including and tick options that increase performance? once you have the minimum see how high frame rates are then try increasing the settings individually until you get a satisfactory ratio of IQ:performance

I tried that (min setting) and when I do it I got like 40-58 fps but it's so ugly lol
and trying to modifie every setting alone isnt efective because whenever I reach a good quality (not ugly at least) the fps will be allready low
I relly dont get it I mean when I use max setting I have like 25fps same as the mid setting !

well im sorry to say if its all ok on minimum and fps drops as soon as you up the eye candy you have 2 choices:

a) Upgrade GPU ( I think you're using laptop so this is bad news)

b) You will have to sacrifice Image Quality for FPS

If there is, I wouldnt recommend it. GDDR5 is significantly faster than the DDR3 that you have as your system RAM.

Using system ram as Vram will make your problems worse, not better.

Using Ram for your graphics card is like using a scooter engine to power a Ferrari :)

It will be slow.

Buy a Ferrari Engine and put it in the Ferrari. But Laptops dont easily allow you to swap out graphics cards, and the cost will be huge.

Not all that much that you can do, sorry :(
