So, I primarily play World of Warcraft, and at the moment run on an Acer laptop with an i5 and GT540M - so while it works fine, its FPS in raids and heavy-stress moments in the game can drop to sub-10 and just be, to be frank, rather rubbish. I've had the laptop for a few years, stood me well, but it's time to move back to a desktop and play things on ULTRA (he hopes!).
So, I've had some input from friends, and have come up with the following. Can anyone offer any input? I want to play WoW (especially the entirety of the upcoming expansion, so 2+ years) and stream it/record raid kills, etc, with the highest quality settings possible and reasonable FPS (50+ ideally).
