I see you are running Ubuntu. I have a HTPC (Zotac Zbox) that I was thinking of converting into a WoW box. How does WoW run on Ubuntu? What sort of FPS do you get in raids? My machine is one of the older Zboxes. I upgraded to 4gb DDR2 800 ram and added an SSD. I think its an intel ion 1.6 processor though.

I don't do raids, I mostly solo.
I haven't really looked at the FPS, but the few times I do, it's below 20. I dunno if it's because of the drivers, or the slow rendering of the game. There are times I'll fly to an area and have to wait a few seconds [up to 10 or so] for that area to fully load.
But it does good enough for me,better then the windows box I have up stairs.
I think the reason why is because my windows box seems real sluggish after all the updates it's had to do. I don't know why windows slows down after a few hundred updates, but my ubuntu box doesn't seem bothered by it's updates.
If that makes any sense.

I understand what you are saying. Unfortunately 20 FPS is a no go for me because I mainly want to come back and try casual raiding. Maybe challenge modes. Thank you though for the information.

How do you guys play without room to rest your wrists/arms...

That looks so uncomfortable.

Oh, my shit is terribly uncomfortable...I didn't include my jerry-rigged chair with couch pillows wrapped around the arm-rest.

My computer is being packed up for Japan in 4 days, so fixing it isn't a priority right now.

It's steampunk, bro! But really, she should take it back.

And I like the mat. I've been needing a wrist pad, and my brother-in-law got my the Vespula as an Xmas gift, so it worked out perfect.

I managed to get a screen shot, using an addon called multishot. For what ever reason, WOW crashes, because a window pops up asking me where I want to save the file. I haven't taken the time to figure out why WOW "locks up" or "crashes" when another program forces it to the background. I typically run wow full screen.
I'm using Titan panel to get the FPS/Bandwidth usage, because when I mouse over the "computer" on the wow menu bar I get 0mps for bandwidth. Certain things work fine in Linux, other things don't. I can mostly live with it.

I plan on getting a job early next year [a part time one], and I plan on upgrading my hardware. So hopefully, I can improve performance. The PC is also wifi connected, not wired. I'm not buying windows 8, so I'll be sticking with unbuntu. I just hope Nvidia has better drivers for linux when I get there.

*edit*
I should go to my windows PC and fire up wow and take a snap. Then post it here as well. But I think the FPS will be close to the linux box.

This should be 0mbps unless the Repair on Demand is kicking in.

My current setup. (Christmas present to myself in November) Playing WoW panoramic across three screens is cool but a short lived novelty. Having the two extra screens up for research (or tv, or newsfeeds, or whatever) is bliss.

Will do. Though probably not until this weekend. Working this week so screen cap was my only option.

Envision a large black glass desk with 27" and 24" ASUS monitors and two keyboards stacked one above the other. I don't use the keyboard when I play WoW. Instead I use a n52te gamepad. Oh, and it's too cluttered to clean off and still take a pic before WoW goes out of existence.
