So, after years of lagging and flickering... the end-of-life of Windows XP finally killed off my old laptop. I've had this new one for a month, and... sheesh, it's like upgrading from a go-kart to a Ferrari in terms of power. (Going from a dinosaur with a 50 GB hard drive and 512MB RAM with a Pentium processor to this thing... yeah, it's pretty darn amazing.)
Of course, now that I have a new laptop, I have a new problem: I want to buy some cool games for it, but PC gaming is the one area of gaming I never paid much attention to- mostly because I couldn't run anything made after 2008 or so. But now that I have something that can actually run PC games, I was hoping to get a few answers and suggestions as to what I might pick up that I can actually run on this thing.
Anyways, these are the stats of my new laptop, for reference.
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit
RAM: 6 GB
HD: 750 GB
CPU: AMD A8 Elite Quad-Core
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8510G
The games I have my eye on are-
Team Fortress 2
World of Warcraft
World of Tanks
...and anything else I can run somewhat comfortably. Suggestions are appreciated, but keep in mind I'm a PC gaming rookie- I won't know a lot of tips and tricks on how to get something to run. Settings I can change are okay. Renaming files and the like? Um, no, I'd like to not completely bork my new laptop.
Thanks in advance, everyone!
