So I'm looking for a computer --- MAINLY TO PLAY WORLD OF TANKS on it's best settings. But I'd like it to be good enough to BF3 as well. However, WoT is the main game.... its pretty difficult to play on my laptop... haha.
At any rate, I was at a big box store discussing this with an associate and he suggested the HP Envy h8-1414. He says this will play the game on it's best settings. He then said if I wanted to play BF3 on it's best settings, I'd just need to upgrade the graphics card to an AMD 7770.
What say you? I'm including the specs here. What I would like to ask is this: This computer is $699. I know I'm not investing a ton but the criteria is set. Can I build a BETTER computer for $700? Can you? Taking all suggestions...
AMD Radeon HD 7450
Integrated IDT 92HD89E Audio
CD/DVD disc drive
SuperMulti DVD Burner drive
Internal 300W (100V-240V)
Form factor: Internal ATX
Total wattage: 300W
Keyboard, mouse and input devices
USB keyboard with volume control
HP USB optical mouse
About the HP build..you can give him 700$ and tell him you don't want the computer..atleast you won't have to carry that crap back home.This build will run all the recent games at decent settings including BF3..
if you are not likely to get any of the recent games then i suggest you go with either the 7770 or 7850..if you do plan on getting more recent games in the near future then its better to get the 7870..the build i posted above includes a 7870 and is still under the 700$ for the prebuilt..you'll still have some money left for getting perpherals..
