That all totally made sense to you I can tell, but for the knuckle-dragging 'what's a RAM?' types out there, the World of Warcraft engineers break it down and give some teasing in-game sample shots.

Argi the blue goat pet for World of Warcraft has accumulated over $1.9 million to help Ebola relief efforts in Africa by the Red Cross. Blizzard announced back in December that all the 'adoption fee' for Argi would be donated.
