Hello all,

I'm wanting to be a decent machine for my son for Christmas.

It just needs to run Warcraft well with somewhere near maxed out settings. Should be pretty easy I imagine.

The PC in question is this one:

Please help quickly. I have to get in line Thanksgiving evening if it is a good deal.

When you say warcraft are you refering to the old strategy games or world of warcraft? if you are refering to the old games then yes you should be fine if WoW then no that's not going get him past low settings.

fx 4100 3.6ghz quad core 120$
asrock am3+extreme 85$
any optical drive 20$
gskill ripjaws ddr3 8gb(2x4gb) 45$
Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower 45$....i think
hd 6870 170$

total 485

if you have a od hdd use it because hdd prices are sky high or just drop the 6870 to 6770 and get a 160 gb hdd.
it would perform better than that you posted

Thank you for the replies.

I am referring to the mmo World of Warcraft.

What he really wants is a laptop, I just saw that deal and thought it might be better.

This laptop is listed on this site as the best black friday laptop deal.

Will it run WoW on high settings?

nope what you need is a graphics card to run wow this has onboard intel graphics (i assume) and those always suck for games manu's build would make WOW look good for a decent price but if you want a laptop for wow your going to have to get something with a dedicated gpu.
