This is my 3rd computer build for gaming, but my most recent was about 2 years ago. I am somewhat out of the loop when it comes to whats good for a price right now. I use Newegg.com for my source of parts and I am looking for advice. I am getting back into WOW and I need to build a better computer than my last one. CPU was Phenom 955 BE with a MSI 460 Hawk edition. I am looking to Get an INTEL CPU and the GPU doesnt matter but I have somewhat of a budget. I am trying to stick in between $150-230 for CPU and $100 - 200 for the GPU....anyone recommend the greatest bang for my buck while playing on the best settings for MOP in WOW?
