I would like to save as much money as possible and im not trying to get the best of the best.... I am basically building another computer just for WOW on ULTRA. I used to have a Phenom 955 BE with an MSI 460 and had no issues running cataclysm on high settings. I was either going to get an INTEL i5 3570k or get the AMD FX 4170. The 4170 is better than the PHENOM 965 or no? The 965 is only 100 bucks.. The AMD CPU should be more than enough for ULTRA settings while running a 7850 GPU right? - INTEL - AMD - GPU

The 965 would be a good option seeing that I do not need a $200+ cpu to Run wow. A nice $200 or so GPU though should be where my money goes.
