Well iv'e had my computer for about 2 and a half years now , and i've never really been interested in playing computer games until i was bored during the summer and i bought a game and it didn't run smoothly. I got kind've mad , but i didn't wana deal with it so i just put the game away. Well now i want to start playing computer games , like any kind in general, im thinking of trying world of warcraft, or something along those lines but i doubt my computer will be able to run them. I wanted to know if someone can tell me what i need to buy for my computer so that i will be able to play those games, im gona put all the system information i have.

It would be nice if someone can tell me what hardware i should buy, im probably going to go to best buy as i dont really like to order stuff online. Hopefully you can help me :whistling:

Edit: i have a budget of around $1000 for spending

The specs of this computer its not worth upgrading especially for playing something like World of Warcraft, you'd be better off buying/building a new one. Things have moved on since that was made.

Plus according to that report, your hard drive is dying anyway. Backup important stuff ASAP I reckon.

Best Buy is great to just look around and be able to get a feel for things (like how a mouse feels) but you can get things for half the price online. If you are not to sure of how much you need to spend to be happy with your rig then try "TR's July 2007 system guide: Recommendations for building the right enthusiast's PCs": http://techreport.co...icles.x/12808/1
It gives some good recommendations for different kind of gamers. I would recommend the specs from "The Grand Experiment" for you on Page 4.

If you order a computer online the article is just kinda a guideline of what kinda things are needed to play a game well.

Best Buy is so much more expensive because they don't make any of the products that they have so the price is jacked up and they are a physical place so they have to pay bills for the building, staff, and products on display.
