I would like to preface my post by saying I know absolutely nothing about computers.
Recently my house was broken into and my computer was stolen. I am now looking to replace my computer with one that will either operate on par or preferably slightly better than what I was previously using. The computer I was using before was an HP Pavillion dv6 (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Noteboo...l/td-p/1110179). I use my computer primarily for running games like WoW, downloading movies and music, and other basic functions. My old computer ran fairly well but WoW would run at most at 30 fps in high population areas on the setting below ultra. Obviously, better performance would be nice. I have a budget of about $1000. What exactly should I be looking for in a computer?
