If you are saying a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz WON'T kill WoW in the Year 2012 then you must be some kind of alien from outer space or something... My 1.7ghz i7 kills WoW... so?

Long story short... The processor is perfect for what you want to use it for, but the a 2500k is only meant for people who want to overclock or something. If thats not your thing then snag a normal 2500 i5. The 2500(K) will go a longer way than the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz . Plus I think you can get a better AMD process than that.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103962 .... Why not go overkill ? ( I think this is BullDozer .. Caution)

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

Not anymore. Newegg took the coupon off. I was about to get it then saw it was back to 35 bucks. Forced me to get a 212. =/

Lmao you actually just recomended him an fx chip for world of warcraft, and I am the alien from outerspace doh.gif
You have no idea how wow works then if you think an fx would benifit him more than a 965 and still as we all said before you slevered some random drivel wow loves the 2500.

I had a stock 965be and a 1gb 4890 and I maxed wow out in 25 man raids.

you'll definitely want 2 disks if you want to record gameplay.

think about it, 1 disk is already running the operating system, on top of the game and whatever recording software you are using.
now you want to record megabytes of data (per second) to it. either your recording is going to lag or your game is going to lag.

Grab a 2120 or 2400 over any AMD chip. Also, definitely go NVidia (460 1gb, 550ti, 560, 560ti) over AMD for graphics (for WoW). My GTX 460 768mb ran WoW @ 1080p maxed out just fine (with a 4GHz Phenom II x2 555).

My 6950 2gb does well, but not nearly as well as it should given how much more expensive it is over my old 460.

I highly suggest an SSD for warcraft. Even a 60GB one is enough. It really really helps wink.gif
