Until recently I thought I would need to purchase a laptop to replace my current one, but as circumstances have changed I am now able to save money and hopefully get better performance by getting a desktop. I know little of these things so I need some help if anyone has a spare moment.
I hope be able to run Cata on at least medium settings. My chief concerns are to be able to have view distance up and projected textures on...and get playable FPS in larger BGs and WG/Tol Barad, and raids (on my current craptop enemies in wg often don't even load in to my screen before I am dead if I'm in a highly contested area of the map aka sunken ring). I've begun looking and have question about specs...
PROCESSOR & GRAPHICS CARD AMD Phenom™ II X6 1035T + ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB
OPERATING SYSTEM Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64Bit
MEMORY 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz- 2 DIMMs
HARD DRIVE 1TB - 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache
Would something like this cut the mustard? Is there anything else I should focus on in my search?
