Since my old computer's motherboard failed twice, my parents are letting me buy a new computer
I already have peripherals (mouse, keyboard, speakers, monitor)
I would like to buy a prebuilt computer. My budget is about $1000-$1500 and I want a windows 7 PC capable of running wc3
Any sugestions?

What Bart said. :D

Re-use the case, but a new power supply would be good. The connectors have a compression type fitting and once taken apart from components, they tend to not fit very well. Unless you take every compression fitting and tighten them up ever so slightly with a needle-nose plyer.

I priced some goodies out on memoryexpress.com (In calgary but may be near where you live too). $764.

16 GB ram is only usefull in a 64 bit OS.

Code:
AMD A8-5500 APU 3.2GHz w/ 4MB Cache
$109.99

Asus F2A55-M LE Dual DDR3 1866, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, PCI-E, CrossFireX
$79.99

AMD MEMORY Performance Edition 8GB PC3-10600 CL8 DDR3 SDRAM Kit (2 x 4GB)
$99.98

Corsair Force Series 3 Solid State Drive SATA III, 120GB
2 PCS
$119.99

Asus GTX 660 DirectCU II GeForce GTX 660 2GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
$239.00

Corsair Gaming Series GS700 Power Supply
$114.99


This is just a quick sample what you can do. With this setup you should be able to get a 7.5 windows rating, which is pretty good. You could buy the latest and greatest $5000 computer and still not get over 9/10

or

is about what I'd say. They're about equivalent in real performance...so take your pick of either AMD or NVIDIA. I'd take AMD's, if only because I like XFX more than ASUS, (awesome customer support service, lifetime warranty). Also, AMD needs it more than NVIDIA.

You dont need a prebuild PC. Just browse over here -> http://reddit.com/r/buildapc

It's got everything i needed to build my own PC. Good luck. How about some budget limit so we can suggest some builds?

Edit: lazy kids...

Good lord, $1000-$1500 for a comp capable of running wc3? Might want to aim a bit higher there XD. But cmon! Should really assemble your own comp ;o. Can get such a better deal. I put together mine for around $300, and it can run every game that's out there now. Can even run 3D :D.
