Sorry if this sounds cruel and stuck up (I run on a pretty low end laptop myself) but these spec are far, far too forgiving.The GPU minimum requirement is a lie. Anyone who tries to run the game with a 32mb GPU will run it at 1fps, after which one will see a bluescreen or a system shutdown due to GPU overheating.The graphics in WoTLK have improved in every possible way (LOD, View Distance, Shadows, Texture Resolution, Bit Depth, Pixel Filtering) , and trust me, it takes a heavy toll on ones GPU.Im in BETA< so I speak openly and honestly about this.The RAM update is true and honest, as is the processor requirement.Understandably, W2k has been thrown to the wayside.Over and out.

and you can turn off all those fancy new shadows. This isn't saying you can run the game full blast at these specs. They're the minimum recommended to run the game at all.

You can even run the game at a lower spec than you can now without having to resort to console commands to turn down certain effects, like draw distance for example. But I agree, the engine has indeed taken a sharp turn in requirements, but nothing to major at least.
