    <--- Been running wow under vista for almost 2 months now. It runs beautifully. (I'd suggest running it maximized in windowed mode, if you have Vista Aero enabled. I love mousing over WoW on the taskbar to see what's going on while I"m alt-tabbed. Great for raids too.)


    Answer: Undead but it depends on what class you're planning on.

    Yes it works 100% on vista, or XP and 32 or 64bit works perfectly fine...

    Undead or Dwarves? races in WoW really come down to personal preference and as well whether or not you want to be Horde or Alliance.

    Vista works well with WoW. Just make sure your drivers are updated.

    Had both... honestly i like horde better... less ... ummm 12 year olds.

    And Undead get will of the forsaken which is great for pvp or pve

    It depends on your hardware. On my main rig It runs beautifully , but my older rig (athlon 2500+ , gig of ram, ATI x700) I get about HALF the performance in WoW under vista as opposed to XP)

    They added multi-core support for most processors and optimized some code.
