My budget for the new computer is: £2000 (inc speakers + monitor)
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? World of Warcraft, mail, web browsing
What software do you intend on using on the computer? office, paintshoppro, world of warcraft, chrome
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? World of Warcraft
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? i prefer to have lots of programs running in the background (well not lots...but world of warcraft, chrome and itunes ....which is impossible right now with my current computer!)
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? yes
i have an acer laptop and now i can't even run WoW on it anymore...i used to manage and now i can't even stay connected or have any FPS or do anything at all. the second i sign on i get disconnected...my acer laptop is just getting slower and slower so it's time to upgrade! obviously a desktop will have more gaming power than a laptop sooo...yeah. i've heard lots of good things about alienware but is it hype or are they actually worth it? do i need 2 gfx cards? super duper extra memory? i mean i don't want a crap computer but i don't want to spend an extra £500 on things i don't really need!!
so...any help would be greatly appreciated!
