The Western Digital drive that comes with this Gateway DX4860 is a reasonably fast drive. It benches around 81MB/second read speed and about 76MB/second write speed, which is sufficient to make Windows and most applications "feel" fast in most situations.

The answer would depend on the minimum and recommended specifications of the games you’re trying to play. If the hardware meets or exceeds the recommended specifications for the game, then it will play very well. Minecraft, with the render distance set to low – medium, will play very well on this computer. Games such as Call of Duty may not play as well due to the Intel HD Graphics 2000 video solution.

It might, but you can probably do in low settings. My suggestion is to buy video card and power supply unit. But since you only asked if this system is playable on wow, my answer is yes.... on low settings.

The button is used to turn the accent lighting on and off. The color of the light is a very light blue so it may appear mainly white.
