Hrm might as well take a .1ghz hit and get a Hyperthreaded Xeon? Its a nice option, though for WoW I don't think you will see any advantage ATM, unless they have dramatically improved multi core support.

Have been raiding 25m heroics at 1440p on my GTX670 without any issues. Had some stuttering when I had my 3770k at ~4.2 but after de-lid and a bump up to 4.9 it's buttery even at that resolution.

2GB vram as well, but would agree that with the next xpac and texture updates 3GB+ vram would be best.

EDIT: as for hyperthreading, on/off doesn't make a difference from what I've seen. Was curious and have dropped to 4.7 (highest stable HT on with reasonable temps) and saw performance loss with HT on (if any difference at all)

Good to know! So the overclocking will be necessary. I'll revise my build to cram a Hyper 212+ into it and stay on budget, haha. It can be done!

There we go, just within budget. GTX770 with 4GB, and using the Hyper 212 Evo it's a quick and easy OC to 4.2-4.4ghz @ 1.25v vcore, which is equivalent to asuindisun's CPU @ 4.6-4.8ghz. That should do the trick. To stay within budget, I had to downsize the power supply to 450W, which I'm not crazy about because it leaves you very little power margin while overclocking. I would recommend: don't exceed 1.275v vcore while overclocking (doing so would probably cook your CPU anyway, it's best to stay below 80C at full load), don't overclock the video card (The GTX770 performs plenty well enough there's no reason to do this), and don't add anything else that uses a significant amount of power to the build, and you will be fine.

EDIT: If you don't feel comfortable cutting power that close, I can put the 550W back in and cut back either on storage or monitor, your choice as to which...

Lots of 8X series boards will support refresh CPUs without any BIOS updates at all. Lots of Gigabyte boards have support from the original BIOS version.

The above line was edited in within minutes of posting my build recommendation. Was trying to preview post, submitted by accident. The line above was there before I even knew anyone had responded.

See above. Problem solved. The issue was covered in my post minutes after the original sumbit.

The BIOS version required for i5-4690 support on the ASRock board I suggested has been out since JANUARY of this year.

These rigs you guys are making for simply WoW, is extremely over-priced/overkill for WoW. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's OCN.net right? Save some money!
Lots of people with high dollar rigs get FPS dips into the 20s-30s in this game. Modern high end CPUs are a must to handle this game smoothly.

Here we go. By getting a good deal on an ever-so-slightly smaller monitor, I managed to not only bring back the 550w power supply so you can overclock to your heart's content, but I also managed to upgrade the CPU cooler to further support that overclocking.

I like this build! I played around with it a little, but its pretty solid. Ram and case could be tweaked a bit tongue.gif
