Having problems with your Blizzard Entertainment World of Warcraft Collector's Edition for Windows ?

Still lagging in WoW!

\015 I have 2 G RAM, a graphics card with 512 MB DDR, a Pentium 4 with 1.80\015\012GHz, and an internet connection speed of approx 6 Mps, but I still lag\015\012a LOT on WoW. Admittedly, I am not that great with computers, but my\015\012friend has basically the same specs and he can run WoW with everything\015\012turned up and never lags. I have all the in-game settings as low as\015\012they will go and have set everything I can find on my computer to\015\012"performance over quality" or its variation. Is there some setting\015\012somewhere that I may have missed that will fix this?\015

Assuming you mean a bad framerate and not actual 'lag', the problem\015\012would appear to exist in your processor, as it is old and outdated. and\015\012only just fits the minimum requirements to RUN THE GAME, not run the\015\012game well.

Answer: You should upgrade your CPU to a Pentium Dual-core at least.

I normally only play World of Warcraft (wow) on this laptop, it's only a year and a half old and lately I've been playing a lot of wow. Last week out of nowhere I started to get ridiculous unplayable lag in raiding environments. I've formatted a few times trying different operating systems and am now back at square 1 since I used the recovery disc. I'm able to play wow at the moment but I get lag in 25 man raids and otherwise my framerate is jumping all over the place. I think it MIGHT be a
