Hey guys, my sister's laptop recently died and while she saves enough money for me to build her a decent rig, she'll be using a computer i've had sitting in my parents attic for quite some time now. The specs are as follows:

Windows XP 32-bit
512Mb DDR RAM (i forget the speed)
AMD athlon XP 900Mhz
Geforce FX 5200 AGP

Anyways, she want to know if she can run WOW and i honestly don't have an answer for her. I know we used it sometimes for LAN parties to play guildwars and dawn of war. What do you guys think?

It can play WoW, but lag in graphic intensive areas. With low settings it'll be playable.

WoW? Sure. Just don't expect blazing performance. :)
