New build for this summer World of Warcraft

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
Okay so this build will be used to play WoW and I will be recording video with it. How do you all think it will perform? Can I cut costs anywhere without sacrificing too much performance?

Warcraft prefers nvidia and intel. I am not trying to stear you away that is looking to be a good build but if its for wow and wow only, then take alook at some benches the 2500k kills in wow.

Before I messed up and blew my i5 2500k system up it was amazing, I could sit in orgrimmar with everything turned up and it would render every single player. View distance at maximum and there would be a solid 60fps vsync capped there would be no lag and I could see everyone in orgrimmar.
Using a 6970 and it would hardly go over 50% usage I would try stretch to a 6870 if I was you, my 6970 was overkill definatley not sure if a 6850 will be enough for all the dx11 features raiding etc probally tho since its wow tongue.gif

I just peeked at the CPU, GPU, and power supply. All 3 are fine for WoW but as the above poster said WoW favors faster thread for thread CPU's(Intel) and Nvidia GPU's. An i3 2120 and a GTX 460 will be very WoW worthy on a budget. Also, the PSU is way overkill. Go for a quality 550w unit for a WoW machine.

What's your budget looking like? Looks like around $800-1000?

Could be way better....
For one take out the hyper 212 +. And put the Enermax ets t40 tb silence in its place, it outperforms for less!
