Im new to this so I was wondering if this pc would be decent for gaming.

ASUS M5A97 AMD 9 Series AM3+ Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU HDZ965FBGMBOX - 3.40GHz
Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB (2x 4GB)
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 01G-P3-1556-KR Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0(x16)
Western Digital WD3200AAKX 320gb
Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply


What im looking for is to play games like diablo 3 and World of warcraft on the maximum setting at 60 fps
Im open to changing the parts and i would like to know what i should do to run these games at max settings.

  1. To max the settings at that sort of frame rate, you're looking at a 570/670/680 or 7850/7870 I would think. You may be able to go lower since they're not the most graphically demanding titles, but it's definitely a graphics upgrade you need!
  2. ok thanks and do you think i would need the 750 watts power supply? or could i just use a 550 watt power supply?

    System looks good, but this is what I will change/recommend you do:

    Drop the 750w PSU, you don't need anything higher than a 550w, look at this:

    Change the graphics card, would suggest waiting for the GTX660 / 660ti (out in a few weeks) or the AMD HD7870. If those are too expensive then the 560ti at a minimum.
