Default Understanding video card specs.

This is the reccomended spec for this game.

64 MB 3D graphics card with Hardware Transform and Lighting, such as NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5700 class card or above

as far as I know this video card should match that.

But, due to the low price, something tells me I'm wrong...

That vid card exceeds the recommended specs for the game. It has 128mb of memory and is a 7 series card, which is higher than a 5700.

It was WoW, but I just wanted to making sure I knew how to read video card specs right. I'm still not iffy about that.
