Just a tip - it's not CPU, its PC.

And no, it will not.

Never used that vid card before, but I'm guessing that it will run wow fine. Just use low/medium graphics and it should run smooth.

I agree. Even though the integrated video card supports up to 256MB shared memory, upgrade to a PCI-Ex video card (yes, your computer will support it). And as for the RAM, have at the very least, 1 Gig, preferrably along the lines of 1.5 Gig.

It may run it on low settings, but I thought you meant high sorry.

jervin - that would mean opening up the PC and installing a new card, and voiding the warranty in the process.

WoW, if I remember correctly, needs 1GB of RAM at least to run smoothly.

And jervin, memory on that card will not give much help as the core will lag way behind the memory, even if the memory is only DDR

That computer would run WoW horribly, heres why:
It has one of those horrible 6100 somethin cards that use shared memory... 256 shared right off of your main.. and considering how the system it's self only has 512, you'd be cutting what little you have in half.

WoW is very demanding in terms of memory, having anything less than a gig can cause some performance problems.

So to sum it up: No, that computer will run WoW horribly, your current comptuer would run it better.
