Driving the 10K$ bike still won't make you beat people with skill greater then yours.One artist with a pencil will certainly make a better drawing then me with my 1000$ pencil set.Same in wow. Better rig doesn't make you a good and skillful player.I remember in when I was active in quake3 arena, most of the competitive clans had all the system settings hacked.Removed all the textures, FOV was on 60 (makes all players appear slower and closer) and every and each of one of us had a big florescent green Tank model instead of normal char models.I could have probably rig 486dx2 to flawlessly run quake3 back then.Rigging the computer is for the kids with lots of money who like to brag about their ultra computer.

Did you read this article? It lists the recommended requirements, but the bulk of it is how to make the game run better on low end computers. It becomes more difficult to kill other players in pvp when you're getting 6 fps I would think.

Yeah, and my piece of $^@& laptop will often cause the game to lag out. You'll never see a cheaper pencil set spontaneously make you scribble all over the page or disconnect lines.

@LiltimmyThat was an awesome analogy. Its true, while more gear won't necessarily make you better, shit gear will definitely make you worse. Also, in PVE, the later the content the more horsepower your rig needs. 25-man vs 10-man, Ulduar vs Naxx... etc.

Reading comprehension there buddy. The bike wasn't $10k... its 12.5 KILOGRAMS (Goddamn metric system...).
