Im running the following specs:
processor = AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.41 ghz (I built this computer a long time ago, I had no idea what 32 vs 64 was I assumed bigger was better but I'm running a 32 bit operating system due to driver conflicts with 64 bit windows)
ram = 1 gig DDR2 dual channel (I have 2 extra dimms, can I put a matched pair of 2gigs in these extra slots of a different make and brand? I heard 3 gigs is all you can put on a 32 bit system)
video = Geforce 8600 GT
I experience a bunch of lag when running complex UI setups with lots of active components (like power auras with many many many effects to show debuffs on me, on targets, cooldowns, ect) especially in densely populated areas. Outside of Dal in normal BGs and whatnot, it runs smooth enough with graphics turned down, starts to get a little chop when turning graphics up, and gets a ton of chop (and huge load times) no matter the graphics settings when I go into Dal or enter a densely populated zone (Isle of Conquest or Wintergrasp).
Basically, I can't tell if it is a weak Graphics card, Memory, or even processor, or some combination of the above. Thanks for the help.
