WoW, Powerbooks, and RAM.
Posted 24 December 2005 - 08:25 PM
I think to continue being a serious player I'm going to have to make an upgrade of some sort, and I was wondering if upgrading from 1GB of RAM to 2GB or RAM would make a substancial difference? By substancial I mean a big enough performance increase to justify the cost of buying two 1GB sticks (I currently have two 512MB sticks). Or would the difference be mundane?
I've always thought that it was the slow processor that bogged me down, and that more RAM wouldn't really change much, my friends seem to think otherwise though...
Can anyone here speak from experience? What do you think makes the most "sense?"
Sorry if this has been posted before...

Like a2daj said, if you poke around the mac support forums on www.worldofwarcraft.com you'll see that having at least 1.5 GB of ram is recommened. Unless you can get a cheap deal on a pair of ram sticks, I'd buy one 1 GB stick and see how you like it. If you run other apps like iTunes and such in the background you might want to consider going to 2 GB total. Be sure to check Blizzards recommened video settings for maximum performance. Having one or two of those check boxes on or off can really make a different.
