    I was talking about the game's developers. So it is in fact complete BS. World of Warcraft is a case in point. Blizzard has made sure it can run on almost any computer in the world.

    I've got to tell you something Rage_3K_Moiz, I don't even understand that thread (that seems to be being viewed all over the world)
    Something strange is happening with the minds of computer users.

    50% of the computers I still see in the world (comming in for service) are so old, that no one in their right mind would say it's a gaming computer.

    It seems every teenager out there has at least a gig of ram, and running 3Ghz min CPU's, when in reality, most of the standard home users (adults!) seem to be using half that!

    I wouldn't advise anyone with low end computers to play games. It's basically crazy, and will hurt a tech forum to suggest it.

    I might be the only one who feels this way. But then again I do actually see the computers first hand.

    I can't get myself to advise anyone to be confident to play games on a non gaming specs computer.
    Nor would any computer tech/sales company sell a computer with your exact specs, and say, yep that'll play all your PC games.
    Yes possibly low end games, but again that is not a gaming computer.

    By the way low end games has not been defined well, I believe
    Low end usually means very small low video games

    Not every game will work. You asked if a particular game would work and I said yes, provided you buy the aforementioned hardware. For other games like UT3 & Crysis, they might not even install properly and even if they do, won't run properly, if at all. Every game has different requirements so if you're looking to play only that MMO you asked about, it will work fine. For other games, you'd need to ask around some more and be prepared to spend more cash, depending on what kind of games you're looking to play. Anything that's released in the past year or two will require a new computer though, barring some exceptions like Sam & Max and others.

    Wait a min, can you tell me what video card you are using?
    Also, did you plug in the monitor adapter to the Graphic card from the tower?
