Hello

So I just sold off my current system (i5 3450, 670,8gb ram, 120gb ssd and 2tb hdd with a 27" ISP screen). Because I thought it was abit overkill for what I use my computer for.
I got 1200 euro for it.


And I'm looking for a new system for 600 euro pref. can go as far as 700 euro but rather not unless its a huge improvement. I need a screen and everything so its budget gaming.

I bought my old system to play WoW.. however, after 1month I got sick of it and stopped to play (November). Ive been since only playing LoL (Not a very demanding game).


So here are the options I got to pick from:

1) Intel® Core i3 3220 3,3Ghz
GeForce GTX 650 1GB GDDR5 (1124Mhz)
Corsair 4GB (KIT) DDR3 1600MHz
Seagate Barracuda 1TB - 6Gb/s - 7200rpm - 32MB
+ 23" ISP screen
Price: 600 euro

2)Intel® Core i3 3220 3,3Ghz
GeForce GTX 660 2GB GDDR5 (1033Mhz)
Corsair 4GB (KIT) DDR3 1600MHz
Seagate Barracuda® 1TB - 6Gb/s - 7200RPM - 32MB
+ 23" ISP screen
Price: 700 euro

3)Intel® Core i5 3450 3.1 Ghz
GeForce GTX 560ti OC 1GB GDDR5 (832Mhz)
Corsair 4GB (KIT) DDR3 1600MHz
Seagate Barracuda 1TB - 6Gb/s - 7200rpm - 32MB
+ 23" ISP screen
Price: 700 euro

4)Intel® Core i5-3470
Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 4GB
500 GB 7200rpm HDD
Windows 8
+ 21 " normal LED benq monitor
Price: 650 euro

If you were in my shoes, what system would you pick? Seeing as Im currently only playing LoL.. any of these systems will be more than enough, however.. there is a slight chance I might play something like WoW in the future.. however, just a slight chance. Should I got for one of the 700 systems or will the 600 euro system be enough for medium / high settings in games such a WoW?

#1 one will do everything you are mentioning and should be upgradeable in the future should your needs change. GTX650 is great for playing slightly older games at high quality or the newest ones at lowered resolution.
