    What's your monitor's resolution and what's your budget?
  5. budget and resolution is a biggie. and we need to know what you DONT need, and what games you plan on playing. If WoW and LoL is your big games, you wont need a ton of high end graphics, a simple GTX560 with the Zogma cpu would be more than enough.
  6. the build you listed there is fine. I'd stretch it an extra $10 and get the i5-2400
  7. while playing wow on my mac book i had a resolution of 1280x768. but i would like to increase that. so i don't know what resolution i can use with this new build.
    budget is max 400eur, the guy made me a 660eur build, thats too much for me. he made me a good gamers computer build, not a specifically wow build.
    and for now i only plan to play wow, no other games...it takes enough time..
    i do feel this budget is a bit much..thats why im asking if i can reduce costs
    thanks again all you for helping.
  8. my GTX 460 still rocks WoW try plus i got a Phemon x4 955 BE it should run it with about 50 FPS

    that will save you a lot of money
  9. If you don't know your monitor's resolution we can't help...you may end up with an overkill pc..also we would like a store or sth....
  10. well my monitor is actually a sony bravia tv, the max resolution it gives me on my mac book is 2048x1536. so i asume its also the max resolution the tv would give me also through a pc... but i don't need to have this much resolution if it means extra costs. if it doesn't mean extra costs, then all its good.

    as far as a store, i don't know from where this guy in the pc shop would order the parts form, I just asked him...

    look the point is this: i was playing wow for 2 years on my mac book, and was getting lots of lag, of course. now if i wanna get back to this game, i just wanted a better computer and less lag, i don't need high end gaming computer just a good build that i can enjoy 25 man raiding, wintergrasp, Dalaran, without laging.
  11. oh, I forgot. my budget is max 450 eur.
  12. lag and fps are 2 TOTALLY different things. fps we can fix, lag is internet. Im guessing you meant the latter of the 2.

    i would recommend the Llano for this, as its $110 after promo code and includes a 6530 integrated gpu. For your budget, this will do nicely! i played WoW for over 2 years on a 4650, and i ran 25-mans with little to no hiccups on a 1400x900 res, and high graphics.

    With this, you can skimp on a power supply, and get a Seasonic 300W for $36, 80+ Bronze as well.

    4Gb of DDR3 is fine, and patriot Gamer 2 Series for $25 is a decent set for moderate gaming.

    Asrock has an FM1 mobo for $70

    Cooler Master Elite 430 Case for $40

    Western Digital 500Gb HDD 7200rpm for $40 after promo code

    LiteON with Lightscribe for $21

    $350 later (appr.), this build will handle WoW relatively easy. Newegg.com is where i found all of these items, and they will quote you for Euro as well i believe, its just i have a USA address.
  13. thank you so much for the build. i searched for all items on newegg and arrived at a much lower price then the guy offered me. more then half price. and yes i did mean fps. you go it right.

    your help is appreciated.
  14. Why a Llano build? It's better to get a Phenom II x4 and a discrete graphics card than a Llano.
  15. Because for WoW, you dont need heavy graphics, and the Llano x4 is plenty cpu power for the game. That being said, on a BUDGET build, you can not only skimp on the gpu which is expensive, you can get a micro atx board, a smaller case, a lower powered psu, and cut expenses with these by almost 35%. Thats why.
  16. WoW is more graphics intensive with the DX11 upgrade than it was before, at least at ULTRA settings.

    the originally posted build, but with an i5-2400 instead of 2300, and quality power supply around 500-550W will be a great build and will run WoW on Ultra at 1920x1080
  17. agreed...but the i5 would be a better buy due to longevity (OC potential). i5 2500k is only $205 on newegg right now. Thats an extra $15 for a lot more chip. I suggested the Llano though, because of my old system. With DX11, i can still run WoW on max settings with my 555BE (only 2 cores running) and a 4650 from Sapphire. I dont see how a quad core running at 3.0 with a moderate OC, and the integrated 6530 on there wont run the same if not better.
