Looking to upgrade from a laptop with built in graphics that is really limiting me. I have been trying to review information about the various graphics cards but most of the good articles are dated back to 2007 or just aren't dated at all. And now all the various non-sequential model numbers and brands are just jumbled up in my head.
Looking to spend about $1000
Need it to run WOW, Bioshock and Lego Star Wars II (yea, a kids game crashes the one I have currently )
Size isn't a big deal, I don't travel with it much and a couple hour battery life is fine for the same reason.
Figuring 4G+ ram, 100G+ Sata 7200 HD, DVD burner.. no need for bluray really.
Mostly using it for games, net surfing, some photo and video editing and would like to go at least 5 years before being forced to upgrade.
Thanks for any help you can give, I think I am just trying to look at too much at once tonight with what little free time I have at this point.
