WoW Comp

Hey guys, I have a huge question for all of you here.

I'm into World of Warcraft, my last comp just died, it was 3 years old- pretty nice Gateway but I want to try to build my own from Cyberpower...

Since I only stick with WoW, SC, and Command and Conquer type games what do I need.

I don't want to over do it, but I want a computer that can last me 5 years before I need to start upgrading parts.

I want the smoothest WoW playing with great graphics. I use my laptop for school so basically I want the comp to be dedicated to a few games.


So basically, I want a smooth reliable, non flashy computer thats amazing for my wow addiction. Something that will last me a while before I need to upgrade.

My budget idealy is 600-1100, I have a 22" monitor, should I pickup an additional monitor? I use the MX518 mouse, with just my regular keyboard that has the W,S,A,D keys almost worn down.. lol-

So if you guys have idea's for proccessors, mother boards.. video cards, RAM- I would love to hear them.

  2. Are you averse to building the system yourself or are there other reasons for using C.p?
    I only ask because you could cut a lot out of that build and save some money for upgrades like Ram.
    My opinion,feel free to ignore,criticise etc as you see fit :)
    Go for an 890 Mobo instead of the 770
    lose the 'liquid cooling' option
    lose the 'professional wiring'
    are the soundcard and speakers absolutely necessary?
    The chips a bit overkill for a WoW-only Rig, boiled egg/dynamite style :P
    an AMD 435/440 will run WoW fine at much less outlay
    Re-use old cd drive and case if possible,
    go for a 550/600w psu, corsair or similar
    lose the 3 year warranty (unless you really really feel better/more secure by having it) :)
    look at upping the ram speed (Dependant on Mobo and chip ofc)
    thats just my opinion though, others will differ :)
