Omen 25L
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Alright so I'm definitely a noob when it comes this so bare with me. I was looking to get the Omen 25L, I am a beginner PC player so I will not being doing any hardcore gaming on this computer. Mainly WoW and Sims. I am going to upgrade the SSD to 516gb but wasn't sure which was better if at all between the WD or Intel? I tried doing some research and couldn't find a distinct difference between the two and they are the same price. So WD Black 512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD -OR- 512 GB Intel® SSD + 32 GB Intel® Optane™ memory? I also planned on adding a secondary storage to 1TB. Any other recommendations?

I would suggest the WD 512GB NVMe.   Optane can be problematic if you ever want to increase the boot NVMe. AS far as processor, although I prefer Intel, here is an excellent read.

If you are plating retail wow and not classic make sure you meet the requirements. The game has gotten alot more beefy over the years.
