Yes was just wondering I have a HP Touchsmart 300-1020 All-In-One computer right now that I play wow with and i am getting around 14-24 fps on low settings. Was looking at a HP Pavilion p2-1122 and not sure if it is really a upgrade compared to what I have. There is nothing I can do to my current computer for the fact of it being a All-In-One. I would be happy with 30+ fps on high settings or really any thing better that what i get now. If this computer I'm looking buy in not good what would be a good one have very low budget... (Links below for the specs on both computers)

This is my current computer:

Why are you looking at name brands? They lack quality, are over priced and under perform. i understand you may not want to build your own, but there are other possibilities. What is your budget and do you need just the tower or do you need a monitor???

It'll be just as bad. For starters, you want something with dedicated graphics, not integrated.

That's not a good computer... you wouldn't be playing very well at all with it.

As Stephi said

Thank you for the reply my budget is only around 500.00 to 700.00 max for just a tower or if i could get a tower and monitor for that price would be great. I really just need something better that what I have it is making it hard to progress though ToT with my current computer.

Not amazing but ok... $520
___________

Another option would be to get this for $450
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227442

And then just add this graphics card for $85
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161403

This would give waaay better performance than the first one but costs $15 more total and requires just a smidgen of installation :p

Don't make any impulse buys based on what I say though... some other people here are a lot better at scouting out great deals on computers

Emerron's recommendations are pretty decent really, given that you'd also like a monitor and to keep it all to $700 tops.

You might choose the I3 for $450, and then figure you have $250 left for a monitor and video card. I'd shoot for a Geforce 650ti or maybe a Radeon 7790, and then a 2X" 1080p monitor.
