    You could have done better for the money you spent.

    those were the only things i had to replace on my computer. the mobo and single core processor i have atm are crap.

    edit: can you define "better for the money you spent"?

    3-4 core AMD CPU that would last longer, and have more power.

    In most cases, including this one, AMD is the better choice when it comes to the <$100 price range. You could have spent an additional 20 bucks or so and gotten an AMD quad core for under $100. May not necessarily be a lot better for WoW at the moment, but sooner or later it should be.

    As far as how it will run WoW, it's kind of hard to tell without knowing what graphics card you have. With a CPU like that you probably won't get above medium settings and medium resolution, regardless of which graphics card you have.

    I don't really get why people buy first, and ask how it'll run later... Do it the other way around, first ask, then buy.
