    I want to max out everything except weather and shadow detail, i keep those two all the way down. Could the first comp give 40-60 fps?

    Agree.
  4. Whatever you want it to do, the 4850 is at least 50% faster.
  5. CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-540 3.06 GHz 4M L3 Cache LGA1156 [+20]
    HDD: Single Hard Drive (320GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD)

    these specs, perform better for world of warcraft?
  6. No,HD 4850 is faster than GT 240
  7. I was about to buy an Asus laptop for 900 dollars, but after reading your post I may have to go with the Alienware.

    The Asus I was looking at runs wow at max settings (except shadows) very smoothly.

    When you say 40-60 fps, what resolution do you use, and do you have to have 40-60 all the time, or most the time?

    If you don't include Dalaran as needing 40-60 fps, then it gets easier.
