$1500 (flexible)[AUD] New Build!

Purchase Date: Within the week (7-10 days)

Usage: Multiboxing on World of Warcraft (Up to 5 Accounts simultaneously)

Parts not Required: None. I have to purchase everything. (OS, Keyboard, Monitor etc...)

Preferred Website(s): Whichever is cheapest, but generally flexible.


Country of Purchase: Australia

Parts of Preference: AMD or Intel, I just want the system to work so I am not picky as to which route.

Overclocking: Doubtful, as I don't think it'll be needed. If I do OC, I'll be purchasing Liquid Cooling for it in the future.

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, but in the future. (Or maybe now depending on the price of the build)

Monitor Resolution/Size: Resolution isn't too important, however I am looking at a 23" Monitor minimum.

Additional Information:

I plan on using this PC mainly for multiboxing WoW. Which, we all know isn't a very demanding game of your graphics.

However, opening 5 at once may be taxing on older GPU's.

This PC will be used mainly for this purpose. And the light usage of Photoshop, but I am certain that if it can run 5 WoW's, it'll be plentiful for what I'd be doing in Photoshop.

Thank you for any and all assistance.

  1. Resolution is hugely important. It directly determines the FPS you will get out of the graphics card.
  2. To multibox Wow, you need a rather powerful quad-core cpu and discreet gpu (aka add-on card). 2-3Ghz, 4 gigs of ram, and semi-modern gpu. The most difficult in this thing would be coding macros for keyboard shortcuts on the same keyboard.

    Well within budget. Throw in another 4GB ram kit, upgrade the case, if you wish. The mobo supports USB 3.0 & SATA 6GB/s. It will last a bit longer than those that don't support those.

    The i5 will overclock automatically to a max of 3.2Ghz from 2.66. Just turn on Turbo in bios. I strongly recommend a 3rd-party cooler like:

    CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler $52.00

    The smaller hdd is for OS. The bigger one is for data/backups.
