Hello,
My son plays WOW. Will a Graphics Card - VisionTek RADEON X1300 512MB AGP card do well enough in his computer?

  1. to be honest, no AGP card is going to give you the performance of a newer card. the x1300 is way dated - ati is in the 6 series now.

    Might I ask the other specs of the computer? we could help you a little better then.

    specifically, the motherboard specs (name if you can find it), power supply size (on the sticker on the power supply), and RAM.

    Thanks!
  2. is an Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family a good card for wow or should i get a better one?
  3. LTzach7,

    the G33/G31 is an onboard VGA adapter that serves its purpose as a production machine. I used to have a PC with this chipset; it struggles with high res youtube videos! If you want to play WoW, you will need something more powerful. AKA, you need a discrete graphics card. I would suggest going with an ATI 5770 or higher for fluid rated with acceptable settings.
  4. great advice kbently... now find us an agp 5770... oh wait ;)

    yea 3650, 4650 , or 4670 is about max that you can find and even then the 4670 commands a premium

    neither card will max out wow, but it shiould be playable

    here's a good option

    $75, but $60 after rebate
  5. I was replying to Zach g00f, he didn't specify whether he had a PCIe slot or not. the G33 supports PCIe, so... :)

    The OP on the other hand, ..
  6. ahh didn't notice the thread jacker >_<

    yea the chipset might load wow btu you'l get the infamous "discrete video is needed" and stuck in low settings at low fps ... if it loads at all , if he has a pci-e 5770 would work great for wow , though as WoW prefers nvidia archetecture he might get better framerates for less money with a gts 450
