well im new to the gaming computer world. I would like to make a purchase that i know will be decent or worth buying to play on since i had a old one that didnt do such a good job :( . i dont wanna run the game on high settings but if i could thats a plus as long as it goes in the medium level of wow ill be fine. for what i seen as long as i can run around 15+ fps im good with that. can this computer pull that off?

I would think that should be fine should be a good playable framerate higher then 15 fps when gaming 30 fps is normally considered playable

ok thanks. Yes as long as is over 15 I'm good. is that on cataclysm? Cuz I do have the expansion.... And also would I be fine in big populated areas? Like stormwind dalaran etc. Oh and will I be able to raid ok? And do you think the settings will be in low or medium? I know not high unless I get a better graphics card right? Sorry for all the questions I just want to be sure when I get this comp runs it cuz that's mainly what I be doing. And that's the reason I'm dumping my old one it just can't hadle it anymore.

I dont play wow or the expansion pack, but my knowledge of WoW is its not a highly graphics intensive game so I don't see why youd have to big of a problem.

I sold a customer a very similar pc same chipset and video card and to play wow it was pretty slow.

If you do get that pc I would recommend to install an after market video card.

Anything above a 9800gt should work out great.

Try playing the game first and if you are not satisfy with the game performance with the onboard graphics then you should buy a graphics card.
