videocard is weak... motherboard is old gen or something like that.. it's got a z75 and we are now at z77 > supposidly just differences in dual gpu support,,, probably some other stuff but have to read up on it.

but for WoW .. i guess should work nicely... although you could build a pretty nice system yourself for that budget

it's funny CPU is Overclocked to 4.2ghz but vid card is only 7850.......

should uprate CPU cooler to 212 or evo if you have the budget

That PC will play WOW with fast frame rates and max settings at 1920x1080. Kinda expensive for what you're getting, but I'm sure you already know that. The HD 7850 2GB is an amazing card for its price. But I would be hesitant adding a 2nd one (if you ever think about it) with the un-named 530W PSU.

save around 200$ (well 150$ after you buy extra fans) on this system for build it yourself, and this is going all out within your budget that you set, but Cyberpower is prebuilt without worries, also no keyboard/mouse with this, you get some stuff free with cyberpower.

now I didnt hold back on this system so that's why it's pretty expensive, but there are ways to cut a few bucks off and make it cheaper, but that's if you wish.
