**NOTE THAT THIS IS FROM A WORLD OF WARCRAFT-GAMING VIEW**

1) Does nVidia Geforce GT 425M support directx 11?

2) I've heard something about WoW not being able to utilize all 4 cores in a quard-core CPU. Is this true? Will it utilize them all when needed? (such as in raids etc.)

Aaaaand 3), would these parts be sufficient enough to run 10m raids at Ultra settings? (shadow on medium or smthn).

2,8 GHz Intel Core i5-2300 (4 cores) Sandy Bridge CPU
6 GB DDR3 RAM
1 TB harddisk w/ 7200 RPM
nVidia GeForce GT425M w/ 2 GB dedicated memory
Windows 7 Home Premium
Acer 24" LCD P246HBD (1920 x 1080 resolution)

Thanks in advance!

PS - this is a prebuilt desktop (Acer Aspire X3960). Reasons I'm not buying the parts are; this desktop is cheaper than what it'd cost me to 1) buy same parts and then 2) pay local computer shop to assemble it. (their prices are insane). Also, can't assemble it myself since I'm ''not allowed to'' by my parents - afraid of me screwing up. /sigh. Don't laugh. >_>

PPS - in case you guys think this one is insufficient, I'd highly appreciate if you could suggest other prebuilts (preferably from webshops that can actually ship to Denmark (i.e where I live)).

thats a laptop graphics card. i cant recommend that you purchase a desktop with a laptop graphics card, unless its some sort of incredible deal. and im betting its not.

Well, what's wrong with said laptop graphics card? Is it it's name or is it actually a fact? Also, it costs 550 euro which is quite reasonable considering I'm living in Denmark (computers are expensive here :<)

I was also confused, I thought you were buying a laptop. WoW's engine only uses one core unless they've changed in cata. That computer should be fine for WoW 10mans but that graphic card will hold you back from ultra settings with a decent frame rate.
