My current computer is getting closes to its death bed as its pretty old and probably need to stop stuffing it with newer video cards and just get a newer one. I was actually going to build me a computer whenever I got my school loans etc, for school and gaming. I had all the parts picked out, and was pumped and nervous to do my first build. I watched tons of tutorials and felt pretty confident in doing so. BUT I've been talked out of building my first computer. I am pretty clumsy, and have a toddler that likes to go through the house and wrecking things, especially climbing up to any tables. So if a part got damaged while I was building, I may not be able to return it and would be stuck with a damage part and the possibility of not getting to order a replacement. When I've gone to ibuypower and cyberpower I can't seem to get the exact parts I am wanting in the build or I get a little to handy of wanting things out of budget.
Long story short, I need a manufacturer built computer. (so it cuts out the need I have to HAVE a certain part) It needs to be a desktop and not a notebook/laptop. I was looking at a few desktops and came across a sony vaio.
and here is how I have it customized:
3rd gen Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM quad core processor (2.30GHz / 3.30GHz with Turbo Boost)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
24" 3D LED backlit Full HD touchscreen display (1920 x 1080)
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 640M (2GB) dedicated graphics
Blu-ray Disc™ player
1TB (7200rpm) hard drive
8GB (4GB x2) DDR3-1600MHz
I can't seem to find a review on this anywhere but it does appear to be one of the newer models that just released.
Any comments? I also looked at Dells new XPS 8500, the only thing they don't have that I want in a computer is a Blu-ray. I looked at HP but I'm not a fan of AMD Radaeon graphic cards :| (you may throw tomatoes at me). I also looked at Lenevo, but I just recently heard of the brand and not so sure about buying something that I didn't know that existed till last year.
In the end I need to know if the sony vaio and the dell XPS 8500 can run games on the highest setting or pretty close to it. The games that I will be playing is: World of Warcraft(25 man raiding), Diablo 3, Assassin's Creed series, and other games that I may purchase in the future when I get rich, lol.
