Is there any way to do this in Wine so that WoW always runs as top priority. Similarly can I change the priority that Wine runs at within Linux? To be honest with my new processor and extra RAM, processing speed really shouldn't be a problem.

I also once went on a course that covered building a Linux operating system from scratch, although I've forgotten a lot of it. So if you think I can get some good performance enhancements by building a custom kernel, I'm happy to try. I can always back up the old kernel and boot off a CD to restore it if things go wrong. My main limitation is time.

Yea the recommended is an 8k 256 MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600, sure yours
meets the min req, but we all know min req are just that, bare min to
get the game to run.
