Hello everyone, I'm an avid WoW player, currently playing on a dying laptop I've had for 2 years. I've been playing with an average of 15 fps on the lowest settings for way too long, and I've decided it's time to look into building my own desktop.
My goals with this build are to be able to play WoW on the highest settings with 60+ FPS, and to be able to play games like Skyrim/Diablo III on high or ultra settings with good FPS as well. I came up with this build with a bit of help from a friend and mostly random pages on the internet. I've never built a computer before and I really did not know much about it before researching this build I came up with.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within 2 months
Budget Range: $1,000 (not set in stone, will be ok if the build goes over a few $100 if necessary, $1,500 max)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Primarily gaming, browsing
Parts Not Required: Need everything
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Preferably newegg, unless price can be find for less elsewhere (tigerdirect/amazon)
Since I don't own a desktop I have no parts to use, so I'll be completely building this from scratch. That includes everything above, as well as a monitor/keyboard/mouse/speakers/OS. My ultimate goal is to get all of this somewhere between $1,000-$1,500, but still as low as possible. I managed to get every single part on Newegg for under $1,200. All I need now is someone who more knowledge than I have to pick apart this build and tell me where I went wrong or where I can go better.
Also, I am a lefty and if anyone knows of a left-handed or ambidextrous gaming mouse that's not too expensive, please let me know about it as well.
I'm still a beginner when it comes to this but I'm learning quickly. Anywhere I've messed up with my build, if you could let me know what I did wrong and why it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
