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.

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?

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)
