    Friend is getting me a new computer.

    As the title says. This is the computer he was thinking of getting me.

    http://www.amazon.com/Acer-AZ3101-U4...productDetails

    How is this for playing games like WoW, and LoL?
    I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!

    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.

    Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 9200 graphics
    Playing games? Not much at all, perhaps the lowest of low settings.

    The GPU in that computer is a 5 year old entry level media card.

    I'm not a big fan of all-in-one desktops for things like WoW, especially ones that aren't all that powerful out of the box.

    If it's for $700, you could get a much better gaming system built. Do you have options, or is it "You get this or nothing"

    Everything in that computer is 5 years old or more. No it won't play WoW or LoL.

    Assuming you can spend this much, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-Core...item27cf417aa2

    Don't normally buy computers off ebay but it'll be better than any pre built garbage on the internet except those pro websites that actually offer to build you the computer with the parts you choose. That computer would play most games on high/ultra, i use i5 3570k and asus 2gb gtx 660 ti and can run every game i've tried at ultra.

    If thats too much heres another, you will need to buy and attach your own cheap graphic card even a £50 card would allow high settings on WoW (just an example) like: xfx 5770 hd or xfx 6770... Ram isnt that great since it's 1333mhz and way overkill at 16gb, but the build is still far better for gaming i.m.o, just an example of what to look for tbh,

    EDIT: linked the websites assuming building your own is out of the question.
