  1. I was thinking about buying one of these two computers and I was wondering if either would run World of Warcraft without it lagging alot and giving low FPS while running add-ons or raiding and which one would run it better. Any help is appreciated.

    Compaq:
    Processor Type: AMD Sempron LE-1300
    Processor - Clock Speed: 2.3 GHz
    Hard Drive Size: 320 GB
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Monitor Size: N/A
    Graphics Type: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE
    Resolution: N/A
    System Ram: 2 GB

    eMachine:
    Processor Type: AMD Athlon 2850e
    Hard Drive Size: 320 GB
    Processor - Clock Speed: 1.8 GHz
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Monitor Size: N/A
    Graphics Type: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE
    Speakers: Yes
    Resolution: N/A
    System Ram: 2048 MB

    Both would be pretty bad for gaming in my opinion. You can certainly play wow but the FPS is going to be bad in all but the lowest settings.

    Everything is fine but your graphics card will really slow you down man. It will run and not lag in regular places but in 25 mans and major cities you will be at 5-10 FPS im sure.

    with your PC:

    middle of nowwhere : 25 FPS
    Dalaran - 8 FPS
    25 man with AOE - 4 FPS

    Not only that, but unless you get a CPU cooler separate from your onboard integrated one or your card will completely fry.

    Hi, I don't agree.

    "6150 SE"

    Anything that isn't in halves or wholes is generally bad for gaming. For instance a 6000 or 6500 would outperform this card. As a general rule stay away from card with this type of numbering. Also SE lines aren't the best. I have to agree with slux you are looking at >5 fps in 25mans

    This seriously must be a troll or slux773's smurf account of some kind.

    Smurf account seems likely.

    Troll? umm pretty sure we aren't on the warcraft forums so no, I'm not a troll. And smurf for sluxx? Sorry but this is my 1st couple of times even posting here. I was just trying to help out. But sluxx was right I wouldn't expect over 5 fps in 25s or dal. My original post said >5 that was a mistake.. <5... If you don't have anything constructive to say than just save it.

    Just kidding around but I understand your taking offense. I apologize for that.

    Not a problem, I may have overreacted as well :)

    O.O yeah I noticed, doesn't that make it more likely?
