    Whats up everyone

    I need some advice regarding upgrades to my computer. I've had it for around 3 years now and never upgraded it. I never had any reason to really until now. I played wow for about 2 years and i quiet about 5months ago. My computer ran wow fine and that was really all i did with it besides surfing the web. Some of my friends started playing warhammer a few weeks ago and they say its really good so i need to upgrade my computer.
    The system requirerments for warhammer online are

    • 2.5 GHz P4 (single core) processor or equivalent
    • 1 Gigabyte RAM
    • A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
    • At least 15 GB of hard drive space

    and below is what i have
    Manufacturer Shuttle Inc Model FN41SP Version Serial Number North Bridge NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 Revision C1 South Bridge NVIDIA nForce2 MCP-T Revision C1 CPU AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+ Cpu Socket Socket A (462) System Slots 1 PCI, 1 AGP Memory Summary Maximum Capacity 1024 MBytes Maximum Memory Module Size 32 MBytes Memory Slots 2Number of CPU(s) One Physical Processor / One Core / One Logical Processor / 32 bits CPU Full Name AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+ Vendor AuthenticAMD CPU Name AMD Athlon XP CPU Code Name Barton Platform Name Socket A (462) Technology 0.13 ┬Ám Instructions MMX (+), 3DNow!

    well there really isnt too much sense to upgraded something that old although is sounds like war hammer doesnt have very high requirements. you should run belarc advisor to get better idea of what your specs are but it looks like an old amd socket A mb with agp gfx and pc3200 ram. ususal for games you want a decent gfx card i dont see what you have now.
    more than likely you will need everything new except you cdrom drive and new dvd burners are only like $25 so you are looking at probably case, psu, mb, ram, cpu, gfx card, sata hdd, dvd burner probably get something decent for around $700
