I think my graphic card is outdated for WoW.... I lag whenever i fly... i lag alot when i use the zeplin.. i lag so much that i dont come out the lag until it is too late to step off the zep so i end up going back... then lag again... my char is stuck on the damn zeplin.... I also lag in ORG... verymuch... and i also lag when there are alot of other players around me...

I need CONFIRMATION.

I use the NIVIDA TI 4200 graphics card.. on a Pentium IV dell comp...

is the TI 4200 too damn old?
ALSO.. i only have 256 MB of RAM... the min req is 512 MB ram.. recommened is 1024 MB of ram...
SHOULD I GET MORE RAM?

Definitely get more RAM. As long as you keep all the graphics settings turned down the graphics card shouldn't be a problem, but I would say that 1 GB or RAM is minimum for WoW. Lag while there are many people around and while flying is typical of too little RAM and slow hard-drives.

Even with more memory and a better graphic card, expect to experience lag in large cities (IF, for example), some instances, and whilst flying.

Yea you will still lag in IF (Ironforge for you non WOWers) which is why some gamers have dubbed it "Lagforge"

I ran that same card at max graphics with a gig of ram and had no lag to speak of though it did have this weird problem of not displaying my char on login till I opened the charecter panel this was fixed by getting a new better vid card though.
