I'm not looking to play bf3 on high/ultra but I would like to play WoW on high/ultra ith high fps or even medium with high FPS. I'm currently playing WoW on lowest settings for everything and I'm barely pushing 19fps max on my current horrible PC. I would like to keep this build as below $700. How does it looks? Is everything compatibe? I don't want to overclock btw.
More aboutcheck budget gaming build please
Seems good. I'm not a fan of OCZ PSUs but 550W should have enough headroom for anything.
you sure you want a micro ATX motherboard? If you hold off on getting Win7 for a week or two then you can use microsoft's promo to u/g to Win8 for only $15.
Yeah I guess I might change to mobo, what do you suggest? And since windows 8 is coming out wouldn't that drop the price of windows 7?
