New gaming rig for WoW

I am looking to build a new gaming rig for Wow would these specs be good enough to play on high settings in raids?

CPU: Intel i5 4690K 3.5Ghz
GPU: GTX 770 2GB
RAM: 8GB
MB: Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3
PSU: Corsair 650W PSU

I am looking to be able to raid in high settings with at least 60 fps during boss fight.
Would this be enough or would I need some upgrades?

  1. That would be overkill for WoW. WoW isn't exactly hard to run.

    It's less expensive, but you don't need a 4690K.

    No rig would guarentee you a solid 60fps on wow. Its more down to the networking and server sync. On 25 man fights your going to take a big fps hit no matter what.

    WoW its self doesnt require high end hardware. The spec you quoted is way over whats needed to max the game out.

    Exactly, while it is nice to not bottleneck yourself with hardware; your real concern is your isp bandwidth. Make sure you are rocking top notch interwebs and you will see the least amount of problems.

    That would be a good rig, and keep you happy for awhile yet. While it may be a bit of overkill for WoW, never know what other games you might get into, so having plenty of power is always a good thing ;)
