If I were you, I would look into buying a used laptop with a remaining warranty. For 800 bucks I bet you could get last generation's Dell Alienware m17 which would meet your requirements. They have an easy way to look up warranty as well, just ask for the service tag.

Even still, if you go the used route, find one with a warranty if you have enough time to claim it before you leave. Dell does service Korea and I would bet (but don't know for sure, you will need to ask) that they would honor the warranty there.

Would it possible for you to link some used laptops?

Not at this time. Try Ebay, or craigslist. As long as you are able to get the service tag to verify warranty *and if you buy local, have them transfer ownership as you buy it since it makes life easy if you do it there.

These have your criteria with the GT330M which will run WOW at full, and SC at medium or higher (as I read, but I didn't see any benchmarks with SC2 and that card).
