Due to some money constraints and the fact I'm home more than away, I'm looking into buying another laptop to replace the one I currently play on (its an HP Pavillion that has been wonderful except for the nVidia graphics card that is prone to overheating.) I know a lot of people have recommended the Asus G51vx-RX05, but the only thing stopping me from getting that is the price (being a poor college student sucks.) I've been wondering how the HP Pavillion dv7-1448dx would do with WoW (its the only game I'm currently playing, if that matters.) My boyfriend has a similar one that runs WoW amazingly, he gets an average of 30-40 fps, and even in Dal, it only goes down to about 20 fps. Could anyone give me any advice on if the HP would be a good buy? I've had amazing luck with HP products in the past, besides the current problem/possibility of my graphics card overheating. Thanks!
