Long story short: Don't try it.

Runs like a dog, even with everything at the lowest resolution. I think WoW would be fine though.

Considering a full install of the game with all chapters is well over 8gb, I wouldn't have even attempted. >)

I only downloaded half a campaign so I could at least try a few areas. As I mentioned, it was pretty poor. Shame really as it's one of the only RPG games that you could play pretty much anywhere for as little length of time you wanted to.

Are we talking GW on a GMA950 or GMA500? Because I got GW running fine on my MSI Wind/GMA950 + GMABooster, running Windows XP Home (or Pro.)

It seems to run fine on my 10v also. Of course I'm not sure exactly what its supposed to be exactly but I downloaded the Trial and played for about 2 hours. Seems about the same as playing Diablo II although that was on OS X vs Win 7 for Guild Wars.

I run Guild Wars on my Mini 9 with no issues. In a large battle the FPS drops to single figures at times but it's playable overall.
