ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:I will primarily be using this computer for WoW, and while I know this does not require the best build, I want to play on max settings. I also plan to take interest in other games like Crysis.
- 1TB HD - 4GB RAM (minimum) - quad core (3 GHz+) - would prefer a nice casing with lighting, but not willing to spend much
I have no experience whatsoever in building a PC, so I'd highly appreciate it if someone could direct me in the right path. And feel free to criticize because that's the reason I'm here!
I see that the majority of the threads here already have a good start as far as parts go, but I'm afraid to list anything other than the monitor because I'm not sure what's compatible with what. Anyways, I listed as much as I know, and it'd be great if someone could help or possibly even post a template with parts around the price range.
Thank you very much in advance and I apologize for being stupid.
You can get a costume built machine for that price with everything you want and no hassle to build it yourself I've built 3 machines before.
I bought one last year and it's great knowing it works right out of the box and tech support was really great when I missed up loading a new drivers.
