Hey everyone, I'm looking to build a 500-600 Gaming PC mainly for World of Warcraft(Raiding 25m's). I would like to run on ultra in 25M raids and with decent FPS. I also should mention I need an Operarting System, but I do have a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Heres what I've thrown together http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2gNBB
Critique it make it the best build possible!

Here is very good build, 660 beats the 7850.. Also you dont need the stock cooler unless you are going to overclock. You arent gonna need to overclock for wow.
Or if you can spend 30 more dollars, you can get the R9 270 which is amazing.

i'd switch the Gigabyte GA-970A-"D3P" to a "UD3P" because it has 8+2 power phase instead of 4+2 ... - i have this board and i think it's very nice,
assuming you would overclock the cpu it could come in handy... and if it's FX-6300 prettysure you will want to overclock it sooner or later,
if not just grab the FX-6350 that's already ~500mhz higher on stock but is essentially the same,
if there's space for a WD Black series HDD i'd grab that instead of the BLUE due to 64mb cache... will perform a bit better as a primary drive,
(also the blue's look identical to my old WD caviar and that thing went up in smoke after ~4 years... no mechanical damage but the control board died and i hear it's a common problem for older WD drives)....
but if you plan on upgrading to a ssd later - not gonne make much difference to you...

Well you should be getting about 57 fps average with the 660..
But with the 270 you should be getting alot more.. Say 80+? And thats also on 1920x1080 res, everything on ultra.

I basically took Amar's build but made a few tweaks:
-Switched out the HDD. The one in his build was using an older drive with only 32mb cache. This one is a newer one with double the cache and just a little bit extra.
-The 7870 performs nearly the same as the R9-270. The R9-270 is a rebranded 7870 non-ghz edition with slight tweaks so it's a bit stronger. The 7870 is a better buy.

Anyway you could make a 600$ build before rebates? Lower GPU I assume?

Before rebate, the build above is $645. I would seriously try to get that build because a build before rebate, like you assumed, will have a weaker gpu. But the problem is that the gpu below the 7870 is the 7850. And guess what? All of the good 7850s are out of stock due to bitcoin miners. That leaves you with a crappy XFX 7850 or a even lower tier, but better brand, 7790.

How would the 645$ build perform vs the 650$ build FPS wise in 25 man raids?

The first one would perform much better, it's worth the extra money if you can. If you can't afford it, then I guess this should do you well too: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-fx785acnl4

Any guesstimated FPS I could run with the 7850 in raids, etc?
