Everything seems to work fine but when i run warcraft 3, it really slows down the system. the game play is not smooth as before. its odd as it happens all of a sudden. when i open task manager it says both my cores are running at 100% and my ram is at 100% too. my system specs are as follows:-

intel pentium D 820 2.8ghz
1gb ram
ati radeon X 1650
running windows vista ultimate.

For gaming you're going to need more RAM - 1 gB is the bare minimum for anything except for Home Basic. And even then performance will suffer. 2 gB will give you a performance boost - but you'll also have to start looking at the services, startups, and processes that are running in order to optimize the system for gaming.

From a quick visit to the WoW site it appears that WoW isn't Vista compatible (although it will run) - take a look at the forums here for more horror stories about Vista and WoW: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/search.h...amp;x=0&y=0
