    That comp won't run anything.... The GPU is WAY WAY WAY below the MINIMUM requirements.

    You are better off replacing the GPU or entire system. 6150 is like 6-7 years old currently.

    why not just trying it out?
    should give you more accurate results as falling for forum trolls.
    This is no general accusation, but you know we got those here.

    you are prob thinking of the older one. this one shows 1401mb integrated.. i assume its not to low but i cant find it worth smacking it all together if it wont work. waste of time

    It would probably not allow you to even run the game honestly. To get that rig into shape to run the game at all, you are probably looking at a minimum of $100 in upgrades. I would suggest something along the lines of a GTX 650. The processor is really low end as well, but the video card is definitely your weak link from what I can tell. 3GB of RAM is not great, but for a budget system, it should get the job done at least.

    The only way to find out if it will run alright is to try it. If that's a Gefore 6150 though - i doubt you'd run more than quake 3, if it's a gt 430, though, it should get the job done. The processor and ram are enough for most modern games but i wouldnt count on being able to play skyrim or Witcher 2 without stuttering when you turn around. If you're asking about wow - how does 20fps grouped sound?

    ok so i slapped it together. currently downloading rest of WOW. im on "playable" atm. dunno how much fps reduction i get for not having the entire game. i cannot play at 1920x1080 but lower is "ok".

    im curious if a GeForce GTS450 would help? ive klocked the current gpu abit but it cant handle so much. i get it to 550 then it fucks up.

    Yes, any gpu will help, i believe the 6150se is a low-powered card from 10 years ago, considering it's naming scheme. Honestly, a 450, a 550, a 260(this is quite powerful) would all do the trick, hell, you just need any modern gpu that isnt strictly HTPCs

    Not much. If you're just sitting in the same area and that little swirly icon at the top isn't present, it shouldn't impact your performance.

    Minimum requirements are sometimes bullshit though. A friend with a 9200gs or gt whatever it was, was running D3 with around 30fps I think.

    It's the lowest of the low from that time. I remember having the 6200TC. That had 64MB onboard VRAM, and up to 256MB when sharing System RAM. The 6150SE is in a similar position, and it definitely doesn't have 1401MB as was quoted by someone earlier. In fact, i believe support for the 6 series were dropped with 310 series NVIDIA drivers.

    The GTS450 is much newer and would be good for the low end. What would be better, and seems to be cheaper, is a GTX650 which is from the latest generation. Any card above that starts to cost more than double and while they do give more performance, since price is a concern, i can only recommend the Geforce GTX650.

    actually i played 85-90 on a machine with very similar specs

    athlon 64x2 2.4ghz
    2gb ddr2
    same onboard gpu

    turn all settings to minimum and play in 800x600 you can expect about 10-20fps outdoors, 10 in cities, dont even try a sha run or lfr, 15-25 fps in dungeons and 10m raids. so to answer your question. Yes you can play wow, but do you really want to?

    a trip to staples got 2gigs more of ram and a nvidia gtx 520 = total cost 60$ on sale and i can get 30+ fms on med/low everywhere but sha runs and in 25mans at 1080


    hope that gives some perspective for ya

    cuz where i live the market for used tech stuff is quite rare and shipment would cost more than the card it self if i wanted it sent :/

    with my current screen 800x600 is so low othat everything is so blurry that i cannot read:< hehe but as most people said a new gpu would solve this issue. hopefully i can play on 1920x1080 asap might throw in another 5gb ram with 2x 4 gig instead of 2x 1.5 since ram was so cheap atm

    Gts 450. But honestly, right now, 5850s are going on ebay for 70 to 80 gbp, and that card is an absolute monster. If you play anything with any gpu intensity at all, it might be worth it.

    pretty much every motherboard will take either type of card, just there's a few that cant do either sli or crossfire ( double GPU ).

    New problem, just checked and my PSU is only on 250watt, doubt there is any kind of good GPU's for that low watt, so i assume i need a new PSU? since this is a micro atx box i can only put in a small psu or?
