My current system is *barely* able to handle WotLK content. During 5-man heroics I see 4-5 fps during a fight. Outside of a WotLK dungeon I go up to 11-12 fps. In Azeroth I am at 17-27 FPS depending on where I am and how many players are in the same area at once.This is with every graphic settingat LOW, game music OFF, sound channels at minimum. Filtering in grfx is Bi-linear (the lowest setting possible).I have an AMD Sempron 1000Mhz with 1.5GB system ram and an ATI Radeon X800 Pro card with 256MB ram. I run Windows XP (sp3). There are no unneeded programs running in the background during play except for Avast anti-virus. Since I am directly connected to the internet (no router) I feel the necessity for an AV program.I live in another country (from America) because this is where my wife and daughter were born. Money for us is so tight we cannot even afford non essential things like snack foods. My wife's internet is provided by the government here (Ukraine) as she is disabled. 4 of us are living on about 300 dollars a month so that means money is tight.It's a shame because this computer barely runs wow (and at times it is unplayable). I do not see myself being able to afford a better system for the foreseeable future. I expect that Cataclysm will be a final deal-breaker for my wow play. :-(
