Im am looking to buy a cheap system that will just be able to run WoW decently on a 19" screen. My questions about the setup below, how will that CPU hold up and will I be able to add a new video card to it and stay within the current power supply?
Processor: Intel E2180 Dual Core 2.0 Ghz CPU Speed. Bus Speed 800 MHz, L2 Cache Size 1 MB, L2 Cache Speed 2 GHz. Package Type LGA775, Manufacturing Technology 65 nm.
Motherboard: ASROCK WOLFDALE 1333-D667 INTEL 945GC A2. CPU Socket 775 support Intel Dual Core. Chipset: Intel 945GC & ICH7.
Your Cpu will hold up fine as i had an E6600 core 2 due 2.4Ghz and it was more than enough.
i would suggest you pay around 50$-100$ for a nice graphics card.
either get a medium end Ati 4000 series or a low end 5000 series if you dont want to pay much. if you want DX11 (Cataclysm will support it) get the 5k series else get a faster 4k series for a lower price
If you get even the low end of the cards recommended here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-460-rad... they will run WoW just fine at pretty much maxed out settings. I'm running it on a ATI x800, and it runs just fine, even the lower end of game cards now will beat what I have.
