Hello! I've been browsing around and need some help on a new build. I built a PC about 4 years ago with help and advice from here, did a little overclocking and such, but I have REALLY fallen behind on technology since then. Anyway, all Im really concerned with is playing WoW and browsing on firefox. My budget is $800 (not including monitor, etc.) Basically I just need a machine that runs WoW amazing, and lets me browse and do some multi-tasking quickly. I dont need any fancy cases with lights (anymore ) or anything, just a stable running, quick machine to browse around and play WoW. I wouldnt mind overclocking a little bit, but nothing too serious. Thanks in advance!
Ah! thank you guys very much. That bundle looks like a good deal. Im assuming quad core wont make that much difference to me? and that spending a little more a step up or two on the vid. card wont matter? I dont really know the next step on video card though.
edit: also, will the stock cooling fan be ok for the cpu? I had an aftermarket on my last build.
edit #2: what are the differences between brands on the Vid. card? such as the Saphire/Asus/MSI HD 4850 512MB. Looks like their all the same card to me.
Im total noob to building pcs but after doing some reseach i think duel cores are better for gameing as most games dont have quad core optimisation.I could be wrong tho Im in very simler boat to you kyleharmon and are trying to build great gaming rig for same price as you.
i know the hd is not huge but i dont need big one as any date i wana keep goes onto me server or exsternal hd.Yes the ram is cheap but i have read a lot reviews regarding ocz and they seem pretty good.Also i dont intend to go sli.
