First of all, I wasn't sure where this belonged in the mobo or gaming section, but this seemed right. I'm sure someone's gonna hate me for how obvious these questions would be to someone who knows all this, but I'm trying to save myself reseaching time as I have only a few clues as to what I'm doing. I want to upgrade my mobo for wow. Yes, I haven't played wow, I know. Been busy for years, just not enough time to commit. I need a new cpu, ram, video card, and possibly whatever card I need to make this ancient beast handle broadband, and I assume a router for the broadband, but I'm not really sure. I'm running XP. I can handle installation, but compatibility is what's really confusing me. I see a lot of different versions of the mobo such "asus a7n8x-VM/400", -x, -e, and somewhere I saw mention of "deluxe". On my board, below what I think is my currently installed boardband card, if that's the term, is "ASUS A7N8X". No "-_". So I'm just not sure what components it can handle, and I don't have the time or money to cut corners. I'm basing my searches on these "Recommended" specs for the lich king expansion. Processor: Dual-core processor, such as the Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Memory: 1 GB RAM (2 GB for Vista users) Video: 3D graphics processor with Vertex and Pixel Shader capability with 128 MB VRAM Such as an ATI Radeon X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT class card or better I found this for ram, and was going to get 1g, but the "VM/400" made me uncertain as to it's compatibility. crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=A7N8X-VM%2F400 For the cpu, this was suggested to me by a random person, but, again, no clue if it will work. newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819104319 As to the videocard and "broadband card", and router, I'm clueless. I'd appreciate any help.
