  1. Yes, even with your onboard card. But I assume you just forgot to put gpu in your list. With a decent graphic card, wow will run well since its not very hardware demanding. I think internet connection is more of a concern for mmorpg like wow.
  2. Is it one you already own?
    You can use http://www.yougamers.com/gameometer/10422/ to find out what it should run like,
    if thats a prospective build however, things need to change
    Moto
  3. I agree. According to Toms WoW runs better on an Intel machine so dump the 1090.
  4. Even if he stays Amd, the hex is a waste,
    the triplecores blow Cataclysm to shreds so a 955 up is plenty but without any more info from op we're just left guessing :P
    Moto
  5. If I remember the article, you need the hex core just to get power that an Intel dual core can do. Even the older i5 750 blows the 1090 away in WoW:Cat.
  6. I never read up on the Hexcores once I figured they weren't any use to me,
    I should I suppose though :P
    You could always assign cores to WoW but thats a pain everytime you log on
    and Even though I favour Amd (dont know why tbh, not a fanboi thing)
    I do recommend 2500k's to a lot of people, maybe Intel have started to squeeze into the affordable section hehe
    Moto
  7. You can force wow to use more cores. Google it...
  8. I can't believe some of the setups people buy for this game. *sigh

    I ordered this, then Realised that I left out a GPU, it was a combo deal from Newegg. I just needed a computer that would run WoW at decent settings, since my current computer can no longer run WoW.

    Does this mean your current comp can run wow but broken. If it is, just change the bit that is broken if you don't need to run wow in really hi-res ultra setting.
  11. The parts I need to allow my current one to run wow on minimal settings would be about the same as just buying a new computer, plus I share this computer so it would be nice to get my own.

    I asked the original question because my friend ordered this set up from Newegg as a combo deal. but after reading some of the replies here, I myself am probably going to spend a bit more than him and get a Intel based computer.
  12. What you selected can definitely run wow, but look at the best system config in the system forum

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31.html

    you may get better performance for the price

    look for the budget intel/amd gaming pc setup

    also use tom's hardware system builder

    http://apps.facebook.com/tomsbuilder/

    PSU you choose is not very good. Also I think this thread should be in system.
