I am new to PC gaming and I have playing WoW on my horrible laptop. I am getting 7-12 FPS. I was told building a computer is cheaper then buying a pre built one. I don't need to be playing with crazy FPS but I would like to get around 30 FPS on ultra settings. So if anyone could help me by letting me know what I should get to be able to play at a decent speed. I need everything. Please and thankyou.
Your budget might be too low. An operating system will cost you $90, and a monitor will cost you at least another $100. That only leaves you about $200 for the computer. Can you save up for awhile and get a $600 build (including monitor and OS)?
The biggest issue is that your gaming from your laptop so as jryder mentioned you problably need every from the mouse/keyboard to a monitor. Also you have never built a PC now its easy too do but do you have any local friend with expirance just incase ?
Also could you post the model of the laptop your currentlly using to game on ?
I am using a latitude d620 laptop.
I don't want to use it I just want to build the pc. I can get windows 7 for cheap. So excluding the monitor mouse keyboard speakers and operating system. My budget is $450. Would that work?
Wow may be a little CPU-intensive, but at $450 I could push the GPU to HD 7850.
@Jryder, u'r rich enough to spend $400 in GPU, fair enough n' I appreciate that. Don't mind checking my cobbled work as it arrived as u expected. But since Wow isn't so intensive like FC3, BF3, Crysis 3, so $450 would be fine.
@Justindivine, if u don't need wifi gaming 'n can play Wow with an Internet wire, then get rig of the usb wireless adapter.
