    Should be fine as long as you have at least 768MB RAM.

    NVIDIA nForce3 = AMD only?

    Define the word 'play', by that you mean lowest settings?

    Opps, you're correct grayg1 :D

    That's a good CPU gamerboy14, better than Celery's.

    Even a 9200 Radeon could play WoW at more than lowest... a Ti4200 with 1.6GHz P4 and 768 SD RAM that my friend has plays WoW on medium at ~35FPS.

    And the 3000MB pagefile doesn't affect performance much, because since that space is on the hard drive, the transfer speed is terribly slow compared to the many GB/s of RAM.

    I played WoW on 75-80% max settings with 2 gigs of DDR2, an Athlon 3500+, and an onboard GeForce 6200 cGPU. The quality wasn't fantastic, but it didn't lag except in really demanding situations (I had to turn off spell effects during raids)

    Mind you I never played Burning Crusade with it, though.

    Don't bother with 3GB of RAM, 2GB ok but 3GB no...

    Spending your money on a new graphics card will be 100 times more beneficial
