First time Builder, need compatibility check!! Tags: New Build World Of Warcraft Systems Product Last response: October 3, 2011 6:17 PM in Systems Share crest252 October 3, 2011 5:13:54 PM Hello THW, I am looking to build my first budget gaming computer, and I have no idea whether these parts are compatable. My budget was <$400 and this is what I came up with for playing WoW at ultra settings. Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... A nice black mid-tower with a 480W PSU inside MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... AMD Biostar A880G+ PSU: Included with Case HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 500GB 7200RPM (I would have an SSD but couldn't find one big/cheap enough) RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 2x4 GB; DDR3; 240 pin; 1333mhz CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... AMD Athlon II x3 (or x4 if I'm lucky with the BIOS unlock) GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB GDDR5 I've never built a computer before, so can you please tell me if I'm missing anything? Are all these parts compatable? Will they all run WoW nicely? Any suggestions for upgrades/downgrades? Thank you!!

But could you explain what you mean by saving a little more and getting a better CPU? Aren't better ones generally more expensive? What should I be looking for in a CPU that would define it as "better"? And thanks Can't find your answer ? Ask !
