Hi Guys,

Lately I'm in need of another PC to be used almost exclusively for WoW shadowlands.
The PC should run the game smoothly at 144hz 1440P on this or similar monitor: ViewSonic
One option I came with is simply buy the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop

The other option is to build this system:

My question is which one will meet my requirements better in your opinion?
Thanks,

No, don't get the 1050ti if you want to game at 1440. you'd probably need the 1070 or 1060 at minimum to do a decent job (depending on which game)
Hi thanks for your advice.
I got the 1050ti for around $270 so i believe its not that bad of a deal.

If i understand correctly either way this gpu even with amd 3600 wont run world of Warcraft well on 1440p. Is the laptop sufficient for it with its 3050 and i5 10300H?
