Im just looking to play wow and possibly BF3 someone down the line. Any suggestions on buying parts seperatley as opposed to the prebuilt or any feedback will help before i make this purchase. i want to be able to play wow on decent settings so im seriously considering this option and maybe looking into buying a decent budget card.
the CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Hard drive, and DVD are all decent. The PSU is iffy...never heard of eagle and the pictures rather carefully don't show you the actual voltages. the case is OLD in its design, using only 80mm fans, meaning it dates in its design to circa 2000-2003. It also doesn't come with any fans, so you'd ave to buy them . As is, you'll want to add a GPU to this for WOw/BF3, which will push the price to $450-500 for a decent one, even before you consider a better PSU
you could probly come close to this price at newegg with combo deals and a better quality power supply (Antec 380W is $40 right now), and absolutely could get it with a GTX 550ti, GTX 460, HD 6850 or HD 6870 for about $500 from newegg
Thank you very much for the info. This makes me think about what im going to be aiming at maybe ill just consider going on a bargain for parts so i can save up for a good GPU as well so im not stuck down the line with a turd PSU. Looks like ill be saving up for another month.
