For WoW, the P4 will be fine...

LOL you said $350 in the original post... $50 is a pretty epic deal, 350 isnt.

A C2Q would help a bit but ehhh... its WoW. You need a video card. The one I posted will be enough. If you still have issues, then buy the core 2 quad.

The video card I posted is a lot better.

You need DDR2 with the P4 or a C2Q. How much RAM do you want?

it doesnt matter. Thats VRAM and is used by the GPU, not the CPU.

You need DDR2 for system RAM. I'd get a dual channel kit.
2GB is plenty for a P4.

I'm going to take your word thanks alot for all your help
WAIT would this card support my digital monitor?
And the man I bought this from said the ram would only be 640MHz or 667MHz

Yes the 4670 supports digital monitors.

My video card has GDDR5 VRAM and I have DDR3 system RAM... just so you don't feel unsure.
