Yes, you wouldn't just run it, you could max the game out! Very nice rig my friend!!

No, this system will not run the game at desirable framerates at max settings in world of warcraft. This system's video card will not do it.

Yeah the GT 320 is an OEM pile of crap, you will need a new video card for sure.


Best solution

No. You will not get playable framerates on ultra with that video card. It only has a memory interface of 128bit. You need a video card with a memory interface of at least 256bit to run on ultra settings.

Thanks for answers.

I wanted to build my own computer but unfortunately for me my sister insisted that I get one at best buy.

As it turns out I can run the game on ultra in sw for the first time on any computer but yeah the framerates in sw are crap on ultra 28 to 32 or less... my my latency is around 100ms to 122ms in sw when server is busiest... did a few things to tweak my computer to improve latency from 150-350ms... on low my frame rates are 124-166 in sw and up to and over 200 in other areas of the game...

so the problem is the card is 128 bit and it should be 256 bit.... is the a card that is even better than that... I don't know much about video cards but would really like to be able to play this game on ultra in all zones and in all instances or atleast on high
thanks again for responses please give me any suggestions...

High thanks for the info... can you suggest a better video card for cataclysm wow... and are there video cards with more than 256 bit?

Get at least gtx460 but you will also have to upgrade your PSU.

My suggestion is build your system and save a few bucks getting decent hardware.
