Running Windows games on Linux help

  1. I am thinking about replacing Windows with a copy of Linux seeing as that I cannot stand Microsoft and their customer support. I play games on my PC, mainly World of Warcraft, and I need to find a program that runs Windows games in a Linux setup. I would appreciate any suggestions from these types of users. I am also curious about the performance of the games running in these conditions. For you to better explain that, my pertinent specs are as follows:

    3 ghz P4
    2gb DDR ram
    geforce 6800gt 256 ram
    sound blaster audigy 2 zs

    Thanks in advance for the information.

    WineX works best for heavy 3D based games in my experience.

    It's not free though. Wine is free, WineX is not.

    It is possible though.
