Hi , is was wondering if I could run World Of Warcraft at a smooth rate with good fps. Please keep in mind if any better components can be changed for old components , please keep suggestions in that components budget.

It would probably run fine. World of Warcraft isn't much of a demanding game.

My dell dimension didn't run world of warcraft... well when it was 3:00am in the morning , at minimum settings on it did... at 5fps.

So would this rig run World Of Warcraft at 40fps+?

Also Spore would probably run on it to.

Tell me if I am wrong.

I'd say so, yes. The 8400GS is NOT a gaming card, but it should run WoW fine, and Spore... OK-ly.

If I where you, I'd try and scrape together enough cash for a (8/9)600GT

Yea...I second the "not everything will run WoW" notion. My wife had a free period to play it and I tried everything I could think of to get it to run right on her Dell Inspiron 2100 or whatever it is and it just ran like crap...even turning all the graphics stuff down and running it in a window, it still ran like crap.

I need to build a gaming puter...hmm...lol

PS: G1's rock, j03! :-D

wow isnt a demanding game, but your rig will run it at decent fps with minimal lag and crash.
