Hi everybody. After the summer towards November I'll probably be building my first computer and I was going to save up for this build. Do you guys think it is good enough? All I really want to do is max world of warcraft with fairly smooth FPS. Thanks for your input guys.

For the sameprice, I would go with an i5 build at this budget. Also managed to squeeze a better power supply and an SSD in there for the same amount of money :)

Ah I see, thanks for the tip. Is that build the build you would recommend instead of the build I have?

Not the one with the picture in the thread, but the post I have below it I tweaked some of your build around. You were on the right step, just made a few things better :)

I think you're best off focusing on a price point you can save up towards, in this case, $1000, and then looking at the exact build in November. I wouldn't lock into options right now, 6 months is an eternity. Now if you bought this today with $1000, it's a reasonable build, so long as you swap out the execrable PSU. HTO's is better, though.

Wow, thanks. I didn't think that you could have gotten that much for that money. Do you think that that i5 build could max WoW?

Yeah, I definitely hear you there. I was also thinking of just waiting for what comes around the corner because any new parts that come out will either be valuable in this build and or the parts previously listed will go down in price.

You could have maxed out WoW with $1000 years ago! $1000 buys quite a bit of gaming PC - at 1080p, it's enough to crush most things except for the very high-end games.

Yeah I don't really know all that much about its requirements, because I'm kinda new to computer specs and all. I just heard that a lot of people find it hard to max Wow so I was looking for input on a build just for that. Of course, I'll also be doing schoolwork and all on that but I most likely won't be doing "modern games", at least not now, I'll probably upgrade in the future. Do you have any recommendations on a Wow computer under $1000?

Maxing out WoW is easy - with a caveat. During big raids, it can take some power to keep 50+ fps. My i5+760 can dip to around the 50-60 range at it's lowest. If you're wanting to focus more on building specifically for that, you can save some money while still maxing it out.

This build will get you there, and cost under $800. Like was said earlier, this is a good base, but I'm sure we'll have some new toys available by November to swap out for :)
