(Note these are off mmo champ, the leaked box art) My pc is only a year or so old so has no problems runnig wow and the mop beta had no noticable performance difference, just curious as to why they raised the sysyem specs, any thoughts ? (new specs below)

Minimum Requirements
•Dual core CPU, up from a single core at 1.4 Ghz. It looks like it may mention a Intel Pentium D rather than Intel Pentium 4.
•2GB RAM (or 1GB for Windows XP), up from 1GB RAM.
•The X1800 Pro (2005) is now the minimum required GPU, up from the 9500 (2002), which may no longer be supported.
•The GeForce FX 5000 series (2003) also has been dropped from the minimum requirements, replaced by the 6800 (2004).
•The minimum hard drive space is still 25GB.
•The minimum resolution is 1024x768.

Recommended Specifications
•4GB RAM, up from 2GB.
•64bit Windows 7, up from 64bit Windows Vista/7.
•Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2, up from the Intel Pentium D.
•Nvidia 8800GT, up from the 8600.
•AMD 4830 512MB, up from the 2600.

Not really a difficult or expensive set of specifications.

I had 4GB of RAM in 2005.

If you're still using Vista, you're doing it wrong.

I bought an Athlon64 x2 system in 2006 (retired it two years ago).

Said Athlon 64 x2 system had an 8800GT. I used it so long that the card died. Literally.

A build using the above specifications should cost, AT MOST, about $350 (excluding monitor, peripherals, disk drives, etc).

I don't see the problem?

I have a dumb question about the system requirements for MoP. It says you need 25 gigs of hard drive space. So it that 25 additional gig? Because I am running WOW on a 10 year old computer and only have a 50 gig hard drive. It runs all other expansions just fine. Any help would be great. God I hope i get to play MoP!!!
