Your Aspire 3680 is a $400 Walmart cheapie, it's not a gaming machine. Stick to card games.

You Need A Much More Powerful Machine than that, Personally I Don't Think Laptops Are A Good Solution But Maybe If You Got A Geforce 9900 GT or maybe A Geforce 9800 GTX And Install To The Laptop And Also Getting 1-2gb Ram Video Memory Then I Think It May Make A Good Gaming Machine But Personally Computers Are Easier To Handle And I Tend To Work On Them Better Than Laptops

RobJohnB95, how are you planning on connecting these video cards to a laptop. Entry level laptops have integrated video and are not upgradable for hardware changes.

The choices I see are to return the laptop for exchange with a model that supports WoW (probably not possible depending on how long ago it was purchased), post it for sale and hope for the best in finding a buyer, give it to someone else in the family and buy better or as mentioned give up and play Solitaire.
