  1. I have about 200$ CAD to spend.
    I want to play WOW, but i dont know if my computer is up-to-date enough to actually play it.

    AMD Sempron 2600+
    ASUS A7V400-MX Main Board
    512M DDR 2700 RAM
    ATI 9000 PRO [i think 128mb if not 64]
    80GB/7200rpm HDD

    i dont know what should i upgrade. Should I buy a new set of ram? PC3200? 512x2? or a new video card? Thanks for the help.

    Video Card!

    The 9000pro will play the game but you will not enjoy it. I don't know how much $200 CAD is but since you are on a budget go with a 5700 (not le) or any of the upper radeons 9600, 9700, 9800. any of them will play just fine. Also if you have $$$ left over, buy another stick of RAM. I hope this helped

    i think ur prority shoould be RAM first then the graphics card.

    1 GB is minimum to play this game so try getting another 512 Mb Ram stick the next option is to go for a a good decent card try as as PaulWuzHere suggest here and u will be fine. :grinthumb
