I am trying to put together a computer for a buddy who is on a budget. He is planning on playing mainly WoW on it, and maybe some CSS. I ran across this combo deal on newegg while I was trying to put some parts together to try and get a price going for him. Let me know what you guys think of this. He doesn't need a monitor so thats not an issue.
Do you think he'll be able to run WoW efficiently at 1920-1200 with reasonable settings?
That combo seems cool, though. The RAM is a little obnoxious and might limit what heatsinks you'll be able to use. Also, haven't heard much about cooler master psus, but that one is 80+ gold and has a lot of the right features.
its alright but there are some improvements to be had
that graphics card is old but it still has grunt but i'd get something newer
psu extreme overkill that could run 3 5850's
you only need that ram is you gonna do least a bit of competitive overclocking 1600mhz in a low cas is more then enough
that case is over priced in the current market
hdd is not the best in its class and price
top class psu enough for even 2 mid range cards
6870 almost matches a 5870 while using less power
there is a combo with the white phantom cass
Why settle for a 460 ??? Gaming is all about FPS. The 560 will eat it up. Makes no sense building a gaming rig and then blowing money on an SSD and then settling for a vid card that' considered mediocre at best. It's like buying a Corvette and then sticking a 4cyl. engine in it.
Alright I think this is what I'm going to go with. Let me know if compatability is messed up or anything else you might see. All of your suggestions have been great. I appreciated the info guys. The only thing I'm concerned with is the PSU. Is it going to be able to run everything? Should I stray from that combo and pick up a better one?
One more thing. I am going to go with that SSD, but its kinda small, and I know they can fill up fast especially with the sizes of games today. I was thinking about going with a slower 1TB drive just for back up or less used games anyone have a good suggestion for one?
