  1. I'm going to buy the Hp pavilion p6130f desktop
    Specs:
    AMD Phenom X4 9750 Processor
    8GB PC2-6400 DDR2 SDRAM memory
    NVIDIA GeForce 9100 Graphics with 256MB intregrated shared graphics memory
    750GB 7200RPM Serial ATA hard drive
    3600MHz System Bus


    Will the Nvidia Geforce 9100 integrated graphics card that comes with the 6130 run World of Warcraft? And what would my graphics limit be on WoW? (all low, med, or maxxed out?)

    The 9100 is not really a card you would normally use for gaming. How much is your desktop costing you? I think it would be a better idea to assemble your own PC instead.

    WoW may run well on that card...

    final cost is $531 including shipping, taxes, and all that. I really don't have any experiance building one so...

    I don't know specifics, but as mentioned, it is a very weak card.
    Strange how the computer has so much RAM though o.o.

    Are you also getting a monitor at that cost? If not, then for 600$ you could get a pretty nice system built.

    thanks for the suggestion, i'm looking at a rough sketch of building a PC. When i have an idea of a completed system in mind i'll post again probably not the gaming forum though =)

    That computer should run World of Warcraft on full graphics, just make sure you turn the shadows down all of the way and it shouldn't lag at all, depending on your internet connection of course. You would be surprised how many computers can run WoW fine on full graphics with the shadows down all the way.

    Note: Shadows on WoW look pretty bad no matter what system your on even if it doesn't lag at all, they just make the game look weird.

    Yes I have the same model.

    As previously mentioned just turn the shadowing to the lowest setting and you should be ready to rock. I also disagree with the recommendation to build your own system in lieu of this one. It's pretty much sixs on the cost. And later down the road you can upgrade your psu and add a video card for 200 bucks and really rock.

    I'm sorry. But what exactly is the idea you have? At $800 (considering you're asking him to put in the $200 later) he could build a system far better than the one he's buying. You're telling him to buy the system, then spend more money on upgrading???

    lol put the shared memory up on the video card using the biso or nvidia control plane and run wow on low settings and it will be fast and not 2 bad looking
