$1500 (flexible)[AUD] New Build! Tags: Systems Last response: December 10, 2009 1:57 PM in Systems Share Vociferate December 8, 2009 9:19:13 PM 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. www.pccasegear.com.au www.ijk.com.au www.umart.com.au 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. More about : 1500 flexible aud build dndhatcher December 8, 2009 11:02:51 PM Resolution is hugely important. It directly determines the FPS you will get out of the graphics card. p55ibexpeak December 10, 2009 1:57:14 PM 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. My pick: Intel Core i5 750 Intel Core i5 750 In stock $235.00 $235.00 Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3R Motherboard Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3R Motherboard In stock $179.00 $179.00 G.Skill Ripjaws F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH (2x2GB) DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH (2x2GB) DDR3 In stock $149.00 $149.00 XFX Radeon HD5770 1GB XFX Radeon HD5770 1GB In stock $209.00 $209.00 Antec New Solution VSK-2000 Case Antec New Solution VSK-2000 Case In stock $69.00 $69.00 OCZ Fatal1ty Series 550W Modular OCZ Fatal1ty Series 550W Modular In stock $99.00 $99.00 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 250GB ST3250318AS Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 250GB ST3250318AS In stock $45.00 $45.00 Samsung Spinpoint 1TB 7200RPM HD103UJ Samsung Spinpoint 1TB 7200RPM HD103UJ In stock $99.00 $99.00 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM In stock $129.00 $129.00 Sub-Total: $1,213.00 http://www.pccasegear.com 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
