    Default Can this 5 yo laptop handle 5box WoW classic?

    Turns out I need to be temporarily relocated for a couple of months from September!! I don't really want to invest 1.5-2k on a new laptop just for 2-3 months, most likely I would have little need for it afterwards. I can get use of a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p which is 4-5 years old, would it be able to handle 5box WoW classic? Say, medium setting for master, min setting for slaves.

    2.4GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ (Haswell)
    8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
    1TB 5400rpm HDD + 8GB SSHD Hybrid
    Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M SLI Graphics
    15.6" widescreen(1920 x 1080)

    I got a spare 512gb ssd that I can replaced the main drive with, and probably get a 2nd 8gb ram from ebay. I assume the CPU should be ok, but how about the GPU? Since it has dual 750M SLI, would I be able to assign master to one card and the 4 slaves to the other card? Will be using ISBOXER.

    Thanks alot, it'll be great if this can work.

    That was my thought too, lol But seems similar specced laptop with single GPU can run current wow client at mid setting ok, so I'm hoping this being dual GPU will be 5box capable, though I never used SLI/crossfire, not sure how well it will work in this situation. Guess I'll just have to try it out when I get there (laptop is at my destination).

    it probably works somewhat as long as there aren't too many things around to kill your RAM and VRAM, I had looked last stress test how much 5 classic are using but forgot the exact numbers (they are somewhere on discord and my videos) but I think while lower than bfa it was still around 1.2Gb per wow for RAM and lower but still some cpu usage
