yeah the cpu will be more than enough 16 ram would be good but a 1050 ti would have been better ..I think u will get thru alright with the 1030 but cap your fps to 60 in the game it will make some difference.. that is if you will get 60 fps mine varies but i have a i7-9700k z390 mobo 16 gig of ram running at 3600mhz with a nvme m.2 samsung boot drive 500 gb and a 500 gig ssd to run my games off plus a 1 tb storage drive for anything else . running a gtx 1660 super graphics card.too

Good day to you where ever you are :)


I am going to answer a question.
You can play Shadowlands with a 1030 GT. I get 40-55 fps on medium settings. 5 / 6/ 6 1080p
I did used a Increase performance guide for Shadowlands from Panjno.
So do not know how it is without those settings.

What VGA should I buy? GTX 1650 4GB or RX 570 8GB ? My budget is around $170.

I think you'd be fine with an R7 370 at presets 5-6, though your CPU is obsolete and weak. That said, if you have 170$ and want a card, look for either an 8GB Radeon RX 5500 XT (same performance as RX 590) or a GTX 1650 Super. Since VRAM requirements increase with time, even for WoW, I'd go with the RX 5500 XT if I was you. Or with 50-60$ more, a GTX 1660 Super or even an RX 5600 XT.

I voted no because I think that age and wear start affecting your laptop. Plus, requirements for Shadowlands increase dramatically, as you can see above. Either you get yourself a new laptop (the ASUS A17 FA706IU might be a good choice) or a mid-range desktop (about 900€ for a future-proof one).

i wil keep this in mind thx !!! :) but i can play it on medium around 60 fps outside a crowded city :). but i discovered the problem and i don't know how to fix this. my RAM usage is very high around 50% when idle . whenever i start playing wow it goes up to around 98% wich causing me lag spiking realy bad :(

Well, 8GB is a bit low nowadays. You'll want at least 16GB RAM, the way even simple games are going. And 4GB RAM utilisation on idle is not very unusual. Just be sure to kill any unnecessary processes from startup and while gaming and you may get a few extra MB.
