Approximate Purchase Date: around december but probably sooner.


Budget Range: £500 as absolute maximum, rebates dont apply in the UK


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Its a build for my brother, his main request is that it will run world of warcraft at its highest settings (after cataclysm comes out) he "raids a lot" and therefore needs it to be responsive at the highest settings too. he does the odd bit of web browsing and what not soo, he also needs a wireless card in all this as our home network is wired, im thinking about buying a wireless N router so yeah.


Parts Not Required: no mouse or keyboard or os, monitor required in the price but hes limited on space so im thinking a 19" monitor at most!, no speakers either.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None, whatevers cheapest.


Country of Origin: UK


Parts Preferences: I tend to fine gigabyte to be good mother boards, again max of a 19" monitor (mabye a 20 (no more than 18" across)


Overclocking: mabye


SLI or Crossfire: cant see it happening in the budget.


Monitor Resolution: any


Additional Comments: Quiet pc is prefered. and my brother has a fear of computers overheating atm, he has a sony vaio laptop and sony being rediculously capitolist charge a bomb and sell crap products, his laptop is litterslly 80 degrees uner load, he had to buy a keyboard and mouse to use it cuz its too hot for his hands.


I look forward to your feedback :)

Well having used both i wouldn't say the diff is big but thats down to user preference/threshold ^^
