    Elitebook 8540w and WOW


    I just picked up an Elitebook 8540w and was thinking about checking out WOW. This systems specs are:

    i7 Q740 - 1.73 GHz
    NVidia Quadro FX1800M
    16 gigs of ram
    running Windows 7

    I know this is not a gaming laptop but was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what sort of performance I should expect. Not looking for 60 fps on ultra, just looking for playable frames on good or better settings.

    Will addons kill performance?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you can play on good settings but you will lag in 25 mans and minor lags ones in 10 man.

    otherwise you should be able to play the game at good settings without any trouble, don't go any higher and limit some settings to low and you are good to go.

    also: i have a much crappy GPU and CPU + 4g ram and i can run 25 man on low settings with some lag, but nothing game breaking. only addons i have are recount and DBM.

    Thanks for the info. I don't think I will be doing any raiding on this machine, perhaps some 5 man dungeons if it can handle them.
