A pre-built desktop/laptop that can run WoW on Ultra settings?

Looking for a computer to run WoW on high or ultra settings. I'm not "tech" savvy at all so I really don't know what to be looking for. If anyone could give a link to a computer that run it.

  1. What's your rough budget?

    And would you prefer a desktop or a laptop?

    Do you have a monitor / keyboard / mouse?

    What computer do you already have, what level of performance does it give you, and why aren't you happy with it?
  2. Budget: ~1200$
    Prefer a desktop but either is fine
    Would need a monitor too
    Play on a laptop,it can hardly run the game (10~12 fps in empty areas)

    Start your own thread, friend. :)

    That being said, for a prebuilt, it's doubtful. If you're willing to take two hours to learn how to build a computer, you can easily buy the parts for a wow-maxer for $600.

    this is my first time on here so a bit confused on how to do everything sorry :(

    I have done a bunch of reading, but I read that it isnt that easy to build your own comp...something with static gloves and damaging parts, etc?

    No problem. When you're on the main page, look to the right. Underneath the 'forum live feed' with the lists of questions, there's a button labeled "ask a question" - or you can go straight to this link: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/new_thread.htm

    As for that, you're letting a lot of nonsense disturb you - a lot of those articles use scare tactics because the people writing them are ninnies.

    Building a computer is easy enough that eleven and twelve year olds learn how to do it on a regular basis - and damaging a part is extremely unlikely, aside from dropping it on concrete or building a computer in the middle of a thunderstorm. (And even then, you'd probably be fine.)

    I suggest you watch a youtube video or two to familiarize yourself with how it's done, and see if you think it's something you could do.
