Default Need help finding a machine.

Hey guys.

I didn't see a beginners forum or anything for people who don't know much about computers so I figured this would be the next best place for this thread. The game thread looked like more of a place to talk about games, but if I'm wrong I apologize.

I recently discovered that my graphics card isn't going to cut it for a new MMORPG game coming out that I want to play. I was informed that because I am using a laptop I can't just upgrade the graphics card so I think i'm in the market for a new computer. However, I don't know computer manufacturers / computer hardware well or how to find the cheapest computer for my needs. Seeing as I'm just buying this computer for the game (and maybe other upcoming MMO's) I'd like to get the computer for as cheap as possible while still running the game decently. I'll post the recommended specs for the game:


Minimum System Specification

Operating system: Windows XP, Vista or 7
Processor: Dual Core 2.0 GHz or better
Memory: 2 GB
Hard disk space: 15.0 GB available
Video: Nvidia GeForce FX 5900, ATI/AMD Radeon X300, Intel GMA X4500 or better.
Sound: DirectX 8.1 compliant card
DirectX®: 9.0c, June 2010 update
Broadband internet connection (DSL, cable modem or other high speed connection)

Recommended System Specification

Operating system: Windows XP, Vista or 7
Processor: Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or better
Memory: 4 GB
Hard disk space: 15.0 GB available
Desktop Video: Nvidia GTS 250 or better
Notebook Video: Nvidia GTX 200M series or better
Sound: DirectX 8.1 compliant card
DirectX®: 9.0c, June 2010 update
Broadband internet connection (DSL, cable modem or other high speed connection)

Can anyone point me towards what I need? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Wow I posted this in Software, embarrassing. I don't see a delete thread button so I guess I'll leave it for a moderator?
