    Wow runs at <insert fps> on <insert old rig> thread.

    Ok, this is not a "MY NEW IMBAH PC RUNS WOW ON 9000FPS" thread. Its so that people can get a general idea of what performance to expect from different medium/low class machines.

    Acer 5315 laptop
    1,7 Ghz Celeron 530m (single core)
    1Gb Ram ddr2
    X3100 intel integrated graphics (965chip)
    XP sp3

    Minimal settings, 1280x800
    Dalaran sewers, cramped in corner, camera down 32-38fps
    Ogrimmar, between bank and auction, somewhat busy ~15fps
    5 man Woltk dungeons 15-25fps
    10 man raid 8-20fps
    25man 1(it seems wow does not display fps below 1)-12fps

    I had a laptop with the exact same specs as you, except it was a Compaq with Win7 and I had 2GB RAM. Had pretty much the same settings as you on minimum settings.

    I think I'll throw in my computer here since the parts are often recommended in "help me buy a computer" threads.

    Processor: Phenom II x4 965
    Memory: Corsair 4GB 1600Mhz and 9CL
    Graphics card: XFX radeon 5770

    Everything on ultra and 1680x1050 resolution.
    Dalaran on Stormscale (lots of players) 60-80fps
    Questing in Icecrown 130-180 fps
    5 man heroic ~100
    10 man raid ???? (not low enough to notice a difference compared to 5 man)
    25 man raid ???? (not low enough to notice a difference compared to 5 man)


    Will check wow on my laptop later (not installed yet).

    5 man heroic Capped at 60fps
    10 man raid might dip to 50fps

    *I have vertical sync enabled so my fps cannot exceed maximum screen rate.
