    Yes i do realize this is a repost and im deeply sorry, but i could not find answers anywhere else when it was too late.

    In WoW, I'm getting very little FPS in Dalaran. Need video improvement

    System:
    Microsoft Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 2


    Emachines
    T5010
    Intel(R)
    Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93 GHz
    2.93 GHz, 504 MB of Ram

    I was recommended http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187041
    It's now unavailable, but i recall Geforce 8400 being in the name.
    I think it was a 256mb video card, am i only limited to that, or can i go find something else with Geforce 8400 in the name with more memory and better stats and be able to equip it into by computer?

    256 MB video memory makes no difference for WoW (if you don't play on 1920x1200 resolutions). That card will improve your performance quite much. And it isn't unavailable, BTW.

    The link sent me to a page saying the product does not exist when i posted the thread. Also, I was informed that all Geforce 8400-8600 cards were broke. Is this true?
