Hello everyone. I am looking to purchase a budget PC for my 2 little brothers for Christmas. It will be used mainly to play World of Warcraft, since I play it and they want to be able to play with me. Now, they have never had any kind of new computer, and they one they use now for internet browsing is probably 7 years old or so. I am on a pretty tight budget, and they need EVERYTHING. I know I will have to go with some less than desirable parts, but considering that most things would be a HUGE upgrade from what they are using, it is not that big of a deal, it just needs to be able to run WoW decently. Considering that they do need everything, I have found that I cant seem to come close to the prices that the prebuilt PCs on newegg go for, seems like I would save money getting one of those rather than parting everything out. This is what I am currently looking at.
I seem to have forgotten to include my budget. It is as close to 700 as possible. Less is better of course, but I can't really do much more.
Now, I am thinking about downgrading the gtx 260 to perhaps a 9800 gt since WoW does not used the gpu as much as other games, but in case they want to play something a bit more graphic intensive I don't want to cripple them by downgrading to a 9800 from the 260. Any input would be appreciated. And I know the mouse and keyboard included with the PC are low end, but that really does not matter for them. Thanks.
Thanks for the list. I still would need to get windows 7 which seems to run about 100 bucks. Also, while the processor you chose seems to be better than the one that comes with the prebuilt, I would rather get them a gtx 260. I know with rebates it may come out to less, but I have never been a fan of counting on rebates since I have had trouble with them in the past.
