Approximate Purchase Date: 1-2 months Budget Range: $500 After Rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: MMO gaming (World of Warcraft, Lineage 2), gaming Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, but will go anywhere the prices are good. Country: U.S.A. Parts Preferences: Intel LGA 1155 processor and motherboard Overclocking: No SLI or Crossfire: No Monitor Resolution: 20" Additional Comments: I don't need high fps on the highest graphics quality. I just want to play lower-end to mainstream games acceptably well, even on the medium setting.
I would like to know if I made mistakes with the parts I purchased for my Gaming PC. As said above, I am mostly interested in MMOs such as World of Warcraft and Lineage 2 in addition to gaming in general. Being able to play Diablo 3 and Starcraft would be a plus. However, I don't intend to play the most graphically demanding games and generally play older games or less-demanding games.
These are what I've already purchased with what I paid at the time. Some were from Black Friday, combos, and other promo codes. This is my first PC I am building and while I was happy with it before, was told that it may not play MMOs well so now I'm uncertain. If there's anything I should consider replacing I'd be interested in your opinion.
Thanks for the case recommendations, but my list of parts are what I've already purchased and the case I have is good enough for me. I think my system will be producing so little heat that the 3 fans will be more than sufficient.
Thank you zero_ for your links, but my question wasn't "Can I build a gaming PC for $500?" but "Will the gaming PC I build for $500 be good enough for MMOs or will I regret what I purchased?"
