New build for WoW help

Ok guys I'm trying to put a comp together for my Mom she is a hard core Wow playa. What I am stuck on right now is should I get a Quad core or six core PSU? She is looking to spend about 2,000-2,500 on a comp. She is ordering all the parts and going to have bestbuy put it together for her.

  1. It would help if you could fill out the proper format.

    Her budget is incredibly high for a WoW machine. This 1k build is already overkilling it.
  2. I'd have to agree with karma831. While WoW is a multi-threaded app, 6 cores is too much. Even with Cataclysm a couple weeks away, the need for 6 cores just isn't there. If WoW is the main function of this build, use a quad core. For better performance, get a 200 series (or better) nVidia card or a 5000 series (or better) Ati card. Lastly, to understand the limitations of gpu vs fps, read this article:
