Gaming computer

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build a gaming computer, this well be the first one I well have built. I want to play games like world of warcraft and starcraft 2 on higher settings. I have around $600 to spend. From asking people online and looking stuff up I so far have gotten a set up but I feel like i'm not getting the best stuff to make my gaming computer as good as possible for my money. What should I buy to make my gaming computer in my budget? ill put what I found so far below, Thanks a ton for any help.

You build looks pretty darn good for a pc computer. I would just spend a little bit more and buy a 5850 instead of a 5830. I use a 5850 for SC2 and it plays on extreme settings no problem, so I bet it'll run World of Warcraft like a champ! Anyways good luck with your build!

Looks good to me, but I do think it would be worth getting Slightly better than the 5830, maybe a GTX 550/560 TI

No way. The 5830 is an absolute steal at $100, after this $10 off promo: EMCKEHK42

Looks like an overall good bang-for-the-buck, build. I think the case and PSU are trash. That PSU is absolutely dreadful as far as amperage goes; I know it's not modular, but this Corsair is about $66 after MIR and this promo, which expires May 22: MAY15SAVE

Trust me... The PSU is an extremely important component. Don't go cheap. (Ironic I'm saying that, considering my PSU is the epitome of cheap, but I have good reasons for that).
