Hello,

I am about to buy a new desktop specifically for World of Warcraft(and other games) and i was looking though computers in amazon.de(living in Vienna) and found 2 that i really liked.

The idea is to keep the PC under €700.

They both have good power supplies but im not 100% sure about everything in these, i dont think i need USB 3.0? I spent some time doing some research but I DONT want to overkill for just Wow, if the €499 one will run it at ultra then im good with that.

My questions are, how will each of these computers run WoW in Ultra settings? which one is better? is the €499 PC more than enough or will it be laggish?


]http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B008KGVKTG/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&psc=1&s=computers] which is €499 with a video card which is very good,
but im not very familiar with AMD processors.

Im not sure how good or how bad the motherboard is thou?

---------------------

http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B007PBBWGS/ref=gno_cart... which is €639, has a very good processor, SSD(which i really want, and if i dont get this pc, i will buy a new SSD for the €499 computer), but the video card is not that good, also not sure about motherboard?

or

Thank you very much!

The AMD build will be plenty for WOW, its not all that intensive. The other build is more suited for a budget video editor (though insufficient in RAM for it).

May I suggest this SSD.
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB. 109 Euro

The PSU isn't all that great, in general PSU's in pre-builts are never that good. If possible replace it with a proper brand name unit.

Hey,

Thanks for your quick answer!

So the 499 computer is more than enough to run Wow at Ultra settings with no hesitation?

What about the motherboard?

I will order that SSD along with the computer!

Thanks again,

Ray V.

Not sure how intensive WoW is at ultra, but its designed to be run by anyone with a PC, so at the very least high-ultra settings.

The Motherboard seems fine, you wont be able to Crossfire/SLI on it, no USB 3 or SATAIII (which will be an issue with the SSD). But it will get the job done.

Unfortunately, if you want to use the SSD to its full potential you will need a SATAIII port, one way is to buy a motherboard with them inbuilt or to get a PCI card that supports it.
Since replacing the mobo is kind of pointless, a card is the better option.
This should do, supports 4 SATAIII connections and comes with two USB3 ports on it as well.

Great! Thanks for your help, I will be buying the 499 pc, with the SSD and the PCI card!

I believe this should be more than enough for wow?

Yep, should be pretty good for WoW and light-med gaming at 1080p. If the performance starts to slow or you want to play beefier games, just upgrade the GPU to something like a HD7850.

The 550Ti will not completely max out wow at 1080p in busy areas like cities (notice the bench above was done in the krazzworks) but close. I mean 44 FPS in a busy city is not bad, and once you leave your frames will go way up, but depending if you raid in 10 or 25 man...10 wouldnt be a problem, but a 25 man raid might take a dump on your performance.

Personally I would go with the first PC you linked. When you add in the SSD to the other computer, the price difference between the two is not that great and you are getting a much better graphics card (especially for WoW) in the 560Ti.
