Trying to determine if a friend of mine's system will handle WoW. Had her send me a dxdiag report and it lists her graphics card as:

  Card name: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller
     Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
        Chip type: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller
         DAC type: Internal
       Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2572&SUBSYS_019D1028&REV_02
   Display Memory: 96.0 MB

I have never heard of this thing. It's a Dell system (I think). Is this some sort of proprietary card? Is it one that will handle 3d acceleration in a game? The card RAM looks a little light-as I recall WoW wants a 128 meg card but I don't have the specs handy to check that.

It's the onboard video for the 865 chipset - it's not a separate card.

The memory listed is also shared with system memory.  The chipset itself doesn't have any dedicated video memory.

Kinda what I feared. In other words, this thing doesn't have a snowball's chance in Draco'Dar to run WoW without getting a video card for it.

Exactly, unless you like 16 bit 640x480 with all the details dialed down.

It may.

I remember being surprised to find that my old Intel 810 video was able to play Half-Life and Thief II at the time.

It's an Intel Extreme Graphics chipset-based card, almost all are made for onboard graphics, and yeah they're the shit.

But frankly, WoW's minimum requirements aren't that high. I'd wager that card can run WoW fine, abeit with toned down graphics.

I lookedx into that chipset more and it seems like it might actually do it. As long as thw game doesn't require card supported T&L then it should be ok. Guess we'll see  Tongue
