WoW isn't coded to utilize HT, so there should be no difference between an i5 and i7. The only game in recent memory that utilizes HT is Watch Dogs, it's pretty rare so most people just go with an i5 for gaming.

I played that on my POS laptop a few months ago, the graphics are so bad I believe I bet it could play on an iPhone.
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!

Just a post to rant on WoW? You are wrong and quite frankly don't know what you're talking about. Some of these rigs will struggle with maximum settings during heroic raids. Even my signature computer sees 20-30s during certain 25man heroics encounters. It's a processors worse nightmare.

BF4
Crysis 3
Planetside 2 (I think)

There are a few games that fully support and utilize it, alot of games use it, just not very well.

Not really. 4670K is still the way to go in such a budget. FX-6300/8320 for <600$ builds and I5 for everything above, that doesn't include mulpile GPUs. And even an I5 can handle dual GPUs.

Not saying performance will be increased at 1080p (it will for other resolutions, like 5760x1080, I do experience a difference), no doubt the game is GPU bound, but it does utilize it, if you have it, you have less CPU usage then if you dont, but performance shouldn't really increase unless the game is CPU bound.

Hyperthreading does not help in WoW and can limit overclocking. A faster i5 is better for WoW than a slower i7. Plus money saved can be budgeted elsewhere.

What is wrong? That I played WoW on a very old laptop? That the graphics engine is 10 years old? WoW playing on an iPhone is sarcasm.

It seems all the WoW supporters get their panties in a bunch when you remind them of how old the engines are in that game.

When raiding, simply turn down the the particle affects. When I played the game five years ago, there were so many animations going on in a raid that all you saw were rainbows, flowers, and lightening bolts. Couldn't even see the real fight or what was really going on, it was actually pretty humorous.

No point, the socket is dead and the motherboards are super expensive. Trust me, I have a sandy-e, I hate buying motherboards for X79 lol. Minimum $240 for a mobo.
