What can I do with all this power? What are some things its capable of? What kind of framerates can I expect in WoW, and LOTRO? Last time I played WoW I was using a Pentium 4 at 3.16 GHz, 512MB of RAM, and a GeForce 4400 MX+. I've never played LOTRO.

Also if you are one that leaves his rig idle for long periods of time look into Folding@Home, it's for a good cause. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
