Building a £600 ($980) computer for WoW

hey, i hope to build my own computer to play WoW mainly, my budget for just the computer (excluding monitor etc)is about £600. i am wondering if i will be able to get 20-25+ fps in crowded pvp with AOE and buffs going off. i will play on very low settings if i have to, really doesnt bother me too much. this is my first time building so if anybody has any tips that would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

  3. You could build a system that will annihillate wow on max settings for £400
  4. +1, mine has most graphics on ultra,
    and the two things that aren't on ultra are by choice.
    Moto
  5. I agree with ct and why_me, get the Intel socket 1155 CPU and mobo.
  6. thanks very much for all the help, as i said this is my first time and i have next to no experience so this was very helpful (: i heard that wow doesnt need a super computer to run but i didnt think that a £400 computer would run it perfectly, so thank you for that, if i dont have to spend £600 then of course i wont

    Personally I would spend that £600 so you know that your getting a build that will take you further down the road.
  8. less on the Computer does mean i can spend more in the monitor, mouse and keyboard, which means i will be able to keep those, so either way i will just have to upgrade different parts i guess
