So my 2012 alienware x51 died a few months ago.
Looking for a gaming pc that'll be running WoW, gw2 and the odd new game that comes out but along those lines, would prefer a prebuilt tbh just looking for some recommendations.
Thanks in advance guys :)

Without windows and the increased budget this is what I'd go for, again a little over budget including shipping.

Hard drive configuration is pretty much up to you, if you feel you need a lot of storage space then stick with what I've added. If you don't think you need 1tb of space and a 250gb SSD then maybe just a 500gb SSD if you manage your games carefully.
