What do you run WoW on?

(Darianuth) #1

Just curious. I run WoW on a fairly beefy gaming computer, but I’ve heard from friends that they somehow got it working on really old laptops, and I have a guildie who says they even got it working on a mobile hand-held computer! (Albeit running very poorly)

I remember one time I had to use a laptop while my desktop needed fixing and I didn’t have a USB mouse at the time (This was back in like Wrath?) and trying to play WoW with only a touchpad… ouch.


I’ve got a slightly older system but I’m running on a:

  • Intel Core i7-4790K /w Noctua NH-U12S
  • 16GB DDR3 @ 1866 MHz
  • Asus Z97M-PLUS
  • EVGA GTX 970 4GB ACX2.0 FTW+
  • Samsung PM961 512GB NVMe SSD
  • EVGA SuperNova G2 850W PSU
  • Corsair 350D Case /w Noctua case fans

  • Intel Core i7-6700k
  • 16GB DDR4
  • STRIX GTX 970 4GB
  • Corsair 120gb SSD
  • 750 ps
  • some random box

32GB 1866Mhz DDR3
4GB GTX-1050ti
EVO 850 500GB SSD

… and all I play is WoW, btw.

Mac mini

2.6 Ghz Intel Core i5
8 Gig 1600 Mhz DDR3
Intel Iris integrated graphic card
1TB Hard Drive

Works just fine - I have ordered the new generation Mac mini with the 6 core i8 processor so that I can add an external GPU at a later date if necessary.

But you really don’t need all that to run WoW in a more than adequate state

i think most older computers will run it cause wow still uses the same game engine from years back on single thead processors.
i did hear it is gonne be changed but not sure when though or how

  • Ryzen 7 2700x
  • 16GB DDR4
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1060 ARMOR 6G OCV1
  • samsung evo 500 GB SSD

  • 8-core 3.6GHz Intel core i9-9900k (just upgraded)
  • 24GB DDR4 RAM
  • 8GB GDDR5X 2.0Ghz GTX1080 (overclocked from 1657Mhz)
  • 512 GB SSD
  • 2x 1.5TB HDD
  • 1x 1TB HDD

Yes, i may have invested a lot into my PC and have way too much storage space… But atleast its future proof. :smiley:

My PC is 5 years old but recently updated my GPU, still holds up and can play newer games just fine.

  • Intel Core i5-4670 3.40 GHz
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070
  • 8 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 1 TB HDD
  • 120 GB SSD (OS)

Commadore 64, of course.


I run it on an office laptop, i5, 8gb ram, and integrated graphics. 20 fps gg on occasion, graphics set to 4 i think, view distance to 80%.

Planning on buying ASUS GL703GM-EE014 in a week or two

i7-8750H 6 core
GeForce GTX1060
17 inch screen

I hope i won’t have to create a thread in customer support immediately after asking for suggestions on how to remove stuttering or extremely low fps…that would really not be nice. :frowning:

The bane of gamers everywhere.

(Xakura) #14

Geforce RTX 2080 ( Gaming X Trio )

i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz

16GB ram

(Keydiam) #15

i7 - 4770 @3.40GHz
8GB DDR3 Ram (I wish I could use more but the second slot on the motherboard doesn’t work : / )
Geforce GTX 1050ti 4GB

This is good enough for me because I mainly play competitive games on my PC so stuff like League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Pubg/Fortnite etc.


My C.P.U. is a neural net processor, a learning computer.

Currently playing on an old laptop from 2012. It was kind of good that days, it had i7 3630hq, gtx670mx, 16gb of ram, 256gb ssd drive. Handles wow really good, few raid/mass situations are starting to reveal its age. Thats why I started preparing for a new build, which will be desktop this time. So far I have got MSI GF1070 Armor 8G OC, Seasonic 650W power supply, Fractal Core1100 case, 512gb crucial ssd and some seagate hdd. Next month I am getting RAM - 2666mhz DDR4, motherboard and hopefully, a processor. Looking at i5-9600K, but not yet decided. Depending on the 13th paycheck and xmas work rewards, I may get a g-sync monitor to go with it.

DX12 was a gift from heavens. I run stable 60FPS everywhere on 8.

Haven’t spent a penny on the PC for 8 years now except the GPU and not willing to do it anytime soon. Just keep investing in the new i7 folks, totally worth it!!! xDD
