Hi, everyone...
Awhile back I made a move and needed a new computer to replace my broken and beaten old laptop, so I purchased a Lenovo k300 from best buy expecting it to do just fine for anything I may need..
However I would like to start playing World of Warcraft once again and I'm afraid the setup just won't cut it..

So, I'm here to ask for help in upgrading the desktop to be able to run the game well.

I, honestly, have never attempted anything of the sort and have no idea where to begin, or what to expect, so I'm really at your mercy lol..

I guess my question to that then is:
How much better for how much more cost?
... What kind of results would I expect compared?
