Ok, thank you. What price range the. Should I expect at a Best Buy?


Do NOT buy a computer at Best Buy, ESPECIALLY a Laptop. Order one online.

Okay first off is there a reason you prefer laptops? Because you'll be paying a few hundred dollar premium on a laptop over a similarly performing desktop.

Also you shouldn't buy anything from Best Buy. If you're willing to get a desktop then you should look into pre-assembled custom gaming PCs. It really shouldn't cost more than $600-$800 to get a desktop that can max WoW.

Under 4k. Closer to 2k. But basically whatever I need just for WoW!!


My bad, joke thread. Under $4,000 for a WoW computer. Alrighty then.


I'm not a computer "expert". If you think this is a joke please leave. I came here BECAUSE I DONT KNOW. Isn't that that point of forums like these?


No, that's the point of google, youtube videos, tomshardware, and the ten thousand other places to find beginner friendly information with extensive documentation.

This isn't "I don't know which graphics card." $4000. For a PC to run a decade old game, and ONLY that game, nothing else, ever. You surely already know this because nobody on earth is that utterly oblivious, but $4000 is fantasy PC pricetag, like the kind of thing you build to win overclocking competitions. Not the kind of thing you play PS2 era games on.

Now ask yourself if a guy who is willing to pay $4000 for a computer just to play WoW could possibly be anything other than a joke. Even if you ARE somehow incapable of processing the wild improbability of what you're saying, that only makes it more of a joke.

Dude please do not mention cyberpower or Ibuypower. They call an Nvidia GT 610 a gamin GPU. An Intel HD 4000 esaily beats that thing.
