I just bought an HP laptop with;

-4gb RAM
-640gb Hard Drive
-Intel Core i3 2.4ghz Processor
-Intel HD Graphics card (which is actually pretty good)
-WiFi enabled

for only $499.99 (USD)

It was well worth the price. I love this thing.

that sounds good, in my price range too, cheers, and unbreakable, little bit too much money for me would 4gb of ram be enough to game and have internet open at the same time, with minimal lag? cos i'll be playing WoW whilst tabbing to facebook and CH

yeah, I would recommend you save up for a desktop as well if it's just for gaming.
And also what kind of games are you going to play, like intense gaming or just casual.

I built my desktop early this year for $800-$850
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 AMD 880G AM3 DDR3
CPU – AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
HDD – Samsung SATA2 1T F3
Ram – 4G Kit 1333 PQI
Power supply – Antect True Power TP-550
GPU – Gigabyte 1gb 6850
case - nzxt phantom

(the case was $200 though you could get a decent case for $130-$150, with this you could upgrade the cpu to a intel i5 2500k, or upgrade the graphics card.)

but yeah, I've had 2 laptops and they always have issues like overheating, even though i got a cooling pad for them x.x'

I t really depends on how demanding the games are. 4GB should usually be enough. Windows is always using about 30% of your RAM for commonly used programs. I never use more than 4 GB (Taking into consideration that 30% of 6GB is 2GB..)

I don't play WoW, but the minimum specs are as follows:

System requirements
Microsoft Windows
Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32- & 64-bit supported)
Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+
1 GB or more of RAM
NVIDIA Geforce FX or ATI Radeon 9500 video card or better
25 GB free HD space
4× DVD-ROM drive (Downloadable Installer also available)
Broadband Internet connection

So as long as you can meet those requirements by, say, two or three times, you should have semi-minimal lag. And I've never heard of monk3ymagic, so I can't really help you there.
