Welcome to Geeks To Go,
My name is Cbarnard I hope that I may be of some assistance to you.
Okay, this is my system specs. Right now i'm lagging hardcore in World of Warcraft. I don't know anything about computers, and help would be much appreciated.

Well This is not the entire list of specs for your computer.
Is there a model number on the case somewhere from alienware.
If not that is ok, I will need the manufacture of the Motherboard, along with its model number
(to do this you will have to remove the left panel (as you are looking at the front of the tower))
Next I need to know what size hard drive you have and how it connects to the motherboard (a wide ribbon wire)
AKA- IDE. or a wire that is a little bigger than a phone line, this one is called SATA (both of these are interfaces)
How many CD\DVDroms you have and their interface
The brand and wattage output of your powersupply
What is the speed of your ram? if you don't know that let me know the part number along with the manufacture
What is the budget for upgrades?
I believe that is enough for now, Please post back with these answers in your next reply.
