Well This is not the entire list of specs for your computer.

Is there a model number on the case somewhere from alienware.

If not that is ok, I will need the manufacture of the Motherboard, along with its model number

(to do this you will have to remove the left panel (as you are looking at the front of the tower))

Next I need to know what size hard drive you have and how it connects to the motherboard (a wide ribbon wire)
AKA- IDE. or a wire that is a little bigger than a phone line, this one is called SATA (both of these are interfaces)

How many CD\DVDroms you have and their interface

The brand and wattage output of your powersupply

What is the speed of your ram? if you don't know that let me know the part number along with the manufacture

What is the budget for upgrades?

I believe that is enough for now, Please post back with these answers in your next reply.

Good luck

Your hardware is more than capable of running WOW. The most likely source of your "lag" is your internet connection. What type of internet connection do you have?

Thank you at the time that did not come to my mind. I was thinking the same thing about its capability, just wanted to see what he was thinking...
Thank you
