AMD ATHLON(TM) 64 X2 DUAL CORE PROCESSOR 5600+ 2.80GHZ
3GB OF RAM
RUNNING 64 BIT OPERATING SYSTEM VISTA ULTIMATE

Go into wows game options and turn stuff to low, also add a stick of ram and run them in duel channel(4x2) so u get 8G of vitural ram instead of 3G(3x1) it should make a big diff

since your getting a good internet speed.
easy fix u need to get a better graphics cards
i notice you only have 512mb of integrated graphics ram jumping that but to something more along the lines of 1gb will help with FPS (frames per second)
smoothing out gameplay .... and graphic cards very in price and in gaming lvl but in this a case a low to mid level card should work out fine . and works out fine for people that just want to plug a card in and go... not like me were your graphics card need 6pin power cable on it as well.

and yes more ram wont hurt as running windows along takes 1 gb
and what droopy is talking about is how many ram slot your motherboard has on it in this case im sure only 2 so when u go to buy it you would need 2 sticks of ram both 4gb each making 8 total

i could probably find you some ram and graphics card online for around 100 shipped

keep in mind it wont be a high level card like a gtx560ti (thats the card i have) cost around 300


--------

as far as making a rig (gaming pc )
its is cheaper if you can build it yourself like i did
but since you are not that high in tech you would need to buy it from some one and that alone will jack up the price double to what it would cost if you made it yourself...

but if you would like to go that way i would recommend buying a custom gaming pc from www.ibuypowerpc.com
and not cyberpowerpc.. as before i learned how to make my own PC i bought mine from them and nothing but problems .. with ibuypower i got one made for my brother for last xmas and have had nothing go wrong with it since ...

i would not mind at all i just need to ask you what kind(Not the maker) of ram is it

something like

DDR2
or
DDR3

and im sure your motherboard has a free pci E slot for the card since your using integrated graphics

since u have 4 ram slot on your mother board i think this will be a cheaper way to doing it
use the 2 sticks of 1gb each and then get this kit that has 2 sticks of 2gb each giving you 6gb total
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231207


along with this card (its refurbished if you dont want used new card is in 2nd link)
only reason i posted this refurb is my brother before i got him a gaming pc i got him this card and he played wow on it fine
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102974

or a new card with about the same specs
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162061

and there u go at most you will spend 89.98 and only .99 for shipping

and looking at my brothers old pc (as it sitting here next to me im trying to sell it )
he had 4gb ram and Radeon HD 4650 card and ran wow fine!

really out of DDR2(old type ram ) and since your mother board using DDR2 ram your not looking at a whole lot better out there really...

i mean sure you could use a higher end card but it will be bottled neck due to your MB and ram so there really is no need for much higher.

but mybe there is a little better ddr2 card out there.. prices for those are around 150-200 range (from what i have seen )

pc6400 is just a newer /faster model of DDR2 ram and will work just fine in your computer...

Your computer will clock down to 5300 if necessary, but really either 6400 or 5300 will work.


and all the u means in pc5300u is un-buffered ram

Here is all you need to know. Don't play WOW. It will own your soul and not in the good way. If you do decide to play... It was nice knowing you. RIP to DerangeMaverick's XBL account.

Yeah, you should probably wait until D3 comes out and then get that. It will own your soul in a good way and there's a ton of S7 fanboys that you can play it with.
