    How to reduce the amount of lag you have while playing !

    First if you don't care about the visual effects of your computer i.e. (your windows look), and your more concerned about your computer's performance then follow this step:

    1) Right click on "My computer" (and make sure its the origional folder and not a shortcut)

    2) Then click on propertise

    3) Yhen click on the "advanced" tab

    4) Underneath the "performance" option click on "settings"

    5) You should then have a new windows box open and you should be under the tab "Visual effects"

    6) Check the "adjust to perforamance" button (this will reduce your visual effects but will increase your performance). However, if you want to select the options you want as your visual effects manually then check the "custom" button, and select the options underneath manually.

    7) Now click on "OK" all the way through to save your setting and voila

    Here is another step to reduce your lag a bit more.

    1) Right click on "My computer" (and make sure its the origional folder and not a shortcut)

    2) Then click on propertise

    3) Yhen click on the "advanced" tab

    4) Underneath the "performance" option click on "settings"

    5) You should then have a new windows box open and you should be under the tab "Visual effects"

    6) Now click on the "Advanced" tab

    7) Underneath the "virtual memory" click on the "change" button

    Now select the drive you want to add virtual memory on

    9) select the "custom size" box

    10) as initial size set the minimum MB you want it to use from yuor hard drive, and as your Maximum size just set it to the maximum amount of MB you want virtual memry to use up from your hard drive.

    personally mine is set from 800 - 1500 MB on two of my drives

    11) Once you have done that click on the "set" button then click on the "ok" button all the way through to save all your new settings

    Now you can play your wow game as well as other games and expereince a reduction of lag

    quick tip: Before you play, make sure you close all your background application that you dont need e.g. msn messenger, norton etc... that will help lower lag not greatly but still will help
