Hello, I've been playing for the couple of months WoW on my gaming laptop, while I do run it fine at high settings, I started having heating issues with my cpu and honestly playing on a 15inch screen really isn't great. A few years ago I wouldn't have had to make a thread to ask for help, but I've lost track and don't know much about current tech. I don't play demanding games but I do play WoW at an extremely high level, I need a stable rig and can't afford to crash on a raid/arena match. I want to run it at max settings. I do play other games such as Mass Effect, GTA 4 and would like if my machine could be able to handle Mass Effect 2.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This month BUDGET RANGE: Doesn't really matter, would like to keep it under $1500CAD.


PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Mouse, keyboard, I do need another monitor


PARTS PREFERENCES: I don't have any preferences
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, not really planning on going SLI or XF

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Don't really have anything else to say, I know WoW isn't a demanding game but I want to play it at the highest settings available.

Thanks for the help
