i play wow atm, looking for something new to hold me over till ffxiv comes out.
I run wow pretty good so i should be able to run this without an upgrade right? or is there a big jump in graphics?
Is this game noob friendly? able to lvl alone and or find groups while starting this late?
Are game cards available for this game?
thanks in advance

Warhammer's graphics are kinda crappy. You should be fine though. I'm currently running the game with only 2megs of ram and a cheap graphics card. The game lags in areas with lots of peeps, but that seems to be server side and experienced by all.

Yes, you can do a lot of pve alone, or there are public quests that you can jump in and out of as you wander upon others in the area. I've found little need to sit around trying to put together a balanced group. You'll need to hook up with warbands to progress through pvp. I had my first toon to 40 rr50 before ever joining a guild. Still she's pretty much a loner, though honestly the best pvpers are those that have learned to play together in a group.

Yeah, as far as the upgrade thing goes.. I wouldn't worry about that too much, I think they purposefully made the game slightly less graphic intensive for the simple reason of getting 24 + a realm ( yes that's 48 + people at one place and time ) together w/ to much possessor lag.
The game mechanics are very similar to WoW, so there wont be too much of a learning curve issue for you.
There are always Scenarios to get into, and plenty of RvR at all tiers, so you'll be up and going pretty quick.
A nice thing about scenarios, is it bumps up your lv to 8 in the beginning so that you have a fighting chance at least !!
I love this game, and came to It after playing FFXI for 3 years !!
TOMORROWS 1.3 PATCH Woot !!
Btw, eagerly awaiting FFXIV !!

The only thing I'd say is to make sure that you pick a server that is more densely populated. Especially if you want to do any of the PvP aspects (which is really what the game is built for).

Check out Warheap.com to see server statistics. I've been on Ironfist for a long time and it is very slow. I just recently re-rolled on Iron Rock and have been having WAY more fun.
