Your Questions About Will My Computer Run Wow

James asks…

How much would it cost to buy a computer that can run WoW?

Now, I am not looking for an amazing computer that can run WoW on the highest settings possible. I just want one that we be able to run 25 man raids with little to no lag. I am 15 so I am on a budget. I don't want to wait forever to buy one so the most I am looking to spend is $500 and I really would like to pay less than that.

You can get a laptop that can run World of Warcraft pretty smoothly for less than $500. For around the same price, you can also get a desktop that can run the game better than you would expect, since with everybody on a laptop kick these days desktop prices have dropped a lot.

If you're looking for a laptop, I would personally recommend a Gateway NV52. It's priced at around $500, give or take a few depending on the exact location, and has some really good tech specs for the price: AMD Athlon 64 bit processor, 17″ screen, 320 GB HDD, 4 GB RAM, ATI Radeon graphics card. It will run World of Warcraft pretty nicely, and you can't beat it for the price. It does have a few issues, but nothing major. The biggest issue is that it has a lot of trouble connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi, and when it does connect it has trouble holding a connection for more than a few hours at a time. However, since you generally wouldn't play online games without an ethernet cable anyway, this shouldn't be that big an issue.

If you're looking for a desktop, my recommendation would be to look around online. The top-of-the-line gaming computers come from Alienware, although you generally can't find those for less than $1000. But if you time your purchase during a sale or with some type of promotional deal, you might be able to walk away with a pretty damn nice desktop for a reasonable price.

Can anyone give me a link to a good computer that can run WoW?

I've been looking for a computer good enough to run WoW at around 60 FPS I now WoW is a really old game but I can't find one. It would be nice if one of you could find one for me or suggest to where I should look. My price range is under $400. Please I really want this. Please and thank you.

dknol answers:

You won't be able to run on 60fps unless you build it yourself. Make your price range $500, not $400, and get the parts yourself.

I recommend AMD processor, card, and motherboard, as they are budget.
But again, you will struggle to play at 60fps…

How do I know if Bioshock will run on my computer?

If I go out and just buy Bioshock for PC and bring it home then just install it will it run and that's it? Or are there versions of the game or things like that my computer runs WoW Everquest and tons of other games is there no difference? I'm asking because I haven't put a new game into my PC in over 4 years.

Jenny asks…

where can I find a reasonably priced desktop computer to run WoW?

I'm just look for a computer, possibly around 600-700$, that would run WoW and all of its expansions well. It's likely that it will be the only computer game that I'll end up playing, so something that just runs that and does the basic stuff would be just fine. Thanks :)

dknol answers:

There are some WOW optimized gaming computers at Centaurus Computers, prices start at $629 for those – includes nice AMD CPU and 4GB RAM. Processor can be unlocked and overclocked by them, they do that for free. Last time I have checked they were offering free video card upgrade, so you can score a nice gaming machine for under $700. It comes with genuine Win7 and backup DVDs, very good performance and great value overall. Send them an email and ask what they have to offer on top of that $629 model – they do alot of free upgrades.
Good luck

Betty asks…

How do I get programs to run off seperate NICs?

I have a laptop with an internal NIC and an outer NIC. World of Warcraft will only play off my external NIC as my internal one has it banned is there any way I can tell me computer to run wow off the external while running everything else off the internal?

dknol answers:

Sure. You can't do this on a per-application basis but you can do it by destination address. If you know the particular machine (or network) that WoW connects to you can adjust your routing tables so that all traffic for those addresses goes out your external NIC. You'd use “route add” in a command prompt window to do this.
