Hi there. I play World of Warcraft and my mac handles it quite well.
But soon the new expansion is comming out with better graphics and
am wondering if my mac will handle it then. Here are my currents
speccs.

Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac6,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 4 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Graphics card : NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT

I dont know if i need to show you any other speccs. Atm am upgrading
my memory but will that affect the perfomance of the game ?
And i suppose the main thing i need to upgrade for a game is the
Graphics Card. So what do you think ? I need to change for the new expansion or not ?

I think you'll be fine. The spec of my iMac G5 PPC has lesser specs than yours, and my plays WoW just fine. I also play the Wrath of the Lich King beta on my iMac G5 PPC, and while the graphics are noticeably better, I still don't notice any performance issues thus far.

When I'm bored, I make a new Deathknight of a different race and see how fast I can level it out of the Deathknight starting area. I know all the DK quests by heart now.

Would this happen to be on the Murmur server? I brought this issue up with a guildmate of mine. But he said that if you are on the Murmur server, there are tons of people who made their premade characters on there. However, he leveled his character on a different server, and Daralan was not bad at all. I've taken my premade character on Murmur to different places around Azeroth, Outlands, and Northrend. But Daralan was the only place that I had trouble. The last time I was in Daralan, you couldn't read the chat for 3 minutes without someone complaining about the lag there.

I just popped another stick of mem in my mbp 2.5. I'm ready woo!! Although I really don't need the expansion yet seeing how I'm only a level 34, but it can't hurt.

And how about the zombie infestation this week. It was fun the first day and a half but now it is just plain annoying.

It's hard being a yank that loves European football.
