    Prior to the last expansion I used to run WoW on a Pentium D 820, 1GB DDR2 667MHz RAM and a Radeon 9200se with the settings on medium resulting in playable but undesirable frame rates (hovered around 25 unless it was a populated area, in which case 15FPS wasn't uncommon).

    You do meet the general system requirements for the expansion, though based on this: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/faq.xml#1_22 - so I'd say go for it.

    It will run it =). I used to run it under the same specs as both of you but with on-board gpu and it worked fine. Even in Wotlk was able to pull decent frames (20ish low settings under normal circumstances) and cleared all content pre 3.1. Just remember the game is addicting =P have fun!

    WoW runs of low spec systems but will probably chug a bit.

    Add-ons are probably a no-no also
