Im looking to build a pc I found a bundle was wondering if you all think these can handle World of Warcraft. I was running a DELL XPS 410 pc on Dual-core 2.8 processor. It ran it ok but it crashed, thought Id give a shot a building a new pc.
Prefer Newegg or tiger direct
not planning to Overclock whatever that is
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, Harddrive, case or Power supply
Is Biostar a good MOBO? I haven't built a pc before dont know much about brands. Im open to other bundles if you all any suggestions. I dont really need the case, HD or Powersupply in the bundle but Im not sure exactly what is wrong with my old pc so figured it was better to start fresh.
I would suggest the cheaper i3 or Phenom x4 instead, and simply reduce your CPU settings. You aren't going to be running at ultra settings with a 9800gt anyways, so I don't really see the point in getting the best possible CPU, especially considering an i7 is really not going to help you at all in most games because of your dated GPU.
If you insist on having the best, it seems to me that getting an i7 and a GTX460 so you can play on ultra as well makes more sense.
The x4/i3 averages 60fps in the krazzworks benchmark on ultra, and the i7 averages 80fps on ultra. The GTX460 averages 80fps on ultra. Raids should drop framerates considerably however. But just look at the price/performance differance, the i3/phenoms cost less then half for a modest performance drop.
As far as the power supply what would u recommend? I have a few different watt ones layin around. A few Dynex 400 and I think a 600 somewhere. Oh and as far as downgrading the processor I figured I can up my Videocard at a later time but need to get a PC up and working.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, Harddrive, case or Power supply I have a case and Powersupply that ran my dell but assumed if I updated motherboard and processor i would need to update them as well.
Would I be better off getting a better brand Mobo? Im tryin to build that has best processor or room for upgrades later. Or is what I was considering a decent build?
