    I am running Beta 2 with a Abit AV8 MB and Athlon 64 3500+ CPU with 768MB of
    RAM. I have a ATI Radeon X850 Video Card also.

    WoW will crash intermittently while being ran. When it crashes the screen
    freezes and it locks up my system requiring a cold reboot.

    I have tried both the video driver that comes with vista and the beta
    drivers from ATI to no avail.

    Any techies have any insight into my problem? Could my low amount of RAM
    (768M) be the issue???

    Thanks in advance!

    World of Warcraft is working ok here, with a 850XT.... I've had a few other
    games fall over when starting however, Civ 4, ZT2, Half-Life... But
    starting them in a window works fine.

    I'm not sure if there's a switch to tell WoW to start in a window, but you
    might want to give that a try.

    I'm also having issues running WoW in Vista. It doesn't seem to be able to
    detect widescreen resolutions (e.g. 1680x1050), even when running it
    windowed. Could be an issue with the nVidia drivers.
