I'm building a PC for predominantly gaming. Specifically Diablo3/WoW/and some other titles....the option to play more demanding titles would be nice but not really necessary.


-Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000

-ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

-CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

-Radeon HD7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

-Cooler Master 430 elite Case

-ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk

-Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

-CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80




This is what I have so far, is this build compatible???? Any advice/changes/tips would be much appreciated.



(If theres a better case for a decent price that fits this build better im open to that as well.)



Thankyou!!

If you are going to play WoW specifically, DO NOT BUY AN AMD VIDEO CARD. I could link you a ton of benchmarks showing this, but rather take the word of a 7 year wow veteran who has owned both brands : )

Go with a 560ti 448 core, 250.00 after rebates:

I was considering playing a little WoW on it but not for sure. Diablo 3 is my main game, and I would like something to handle more demanding games as well.

Unfortunately no. Should I upgrade to an i5-2400? Its only about 50 bucks more.

About 750 with an i5-2400 instead of the i3. Hopefully it's fully compatible, i'm very new to pc builds.
