Hello everyone I am in the process of picking out parts to make my girlfriend a computer. She wants to play wow on max settings, which isn't too demanding -- while being able to fraps
Some light video editing from the fraps
and photo shop.
Oh and portal, whatever game that is.

I just need to know where to heavier at and where to go lighter at, if you know what I mean.

If there is anything I forgot, please tell me. I am completely open to suggestions because I think I over killed it. It's at 1015 dollars at the moment. So I want to maybe see what I have to drop performance wise to get the price down a little. I probably need more fans and what not, but I'm not too sure what I need.

Thank you guys so much for your help.

The most important thing with her computer is running wow at max settings in raids. Currently her piece of *** laptop gets like 5 fps and makes her mad lolol. If running fraps while raiding is possible too that's a bonus.

Thanks guys!

do you have a budget? also, whats your monitor resolution, if its lower, then a 6850 is overkill :D

For hers preferably lower then 1000.

I am trying to mostly get max fps in wow during raids.

As long as I can fulfill that and maybe light video editing from short fraps clips she should be fine.

Where as mine I am looking for something I can keep for awhile and do basically whatever I want.

Thank you!

I believe it would be 1920 x 1080 or whatever the highest is for a 19 inch monitor.
