Budget WoW Gaming PC for girlfriend $500-$1000 - Page 8

post #71 of 81
World of Warcraft isn't very graphically demanding. A GTX 1050 Ti is more than enough. I would rather have the central processing power because that will matter quite a bit in raids or any situation where there's several users in the same area.

Not anymore.

Recently WoW has been much more demanding to even keep 60fps in the new areas.
That is turning all on the eye candy at 1920x1080.

I even noticed a huge change since WoD, and more so since Legion.

Are you suggesting that OP should opt for a 1070 to play wow @ 1080p?
A 1050ti is gonna be more then enough, a 1060 is gonna be overkill. Getting a 1070 is gonna be like getting a Lamborghini to do groceries with, on a dirt road when your house is next door to the store kind of overkill.

Did I say a 1070. No, try not to put words that I did not say.
1060 is not even overkill, as that is what I am using.

Are you watching resource usage? Are you at 100% gpu usage when dropping fps? Also, could just be unoptimized settings. There are settings in games that will cause the best hardware out there to drop fps because the settings are not really meant to be used outside of screenshots. Not everything has to be maxed out.

Or is there something in between a 1060 and a 1070 that i'm not aware of?

Maybe a 7700k then and best GPU you can afford as you can clock CPU to 5Ghz and WoW is still using 1 thread primarily.

If you plan on running 8+ then even a 1080ti won't do you any better than a 1060 unless you have a very fast CPU to pair it with.

Clocking the CPU to 5.0 GHz won't have as great an effect on gaming. Ideally you would want an i5-8400 or R5 1600. Both would be tremendous options here. I still think it makes the most sense to get a GTX 1050 Ti since you can get one for under $150 and have playable frame rates. It is worth noting there's no rule that states you must run every setting maxed. Within the next, after Volta has hit the market and people are looking to upgrade, you can get a GTX 1060 6GB or perhaps whatever budget card Volta has to offer.

Either way, spending over $200 for four cores with or without hyper-threading is a terrible misappropriation of funds.

In any kind of performance intensive area it's around there or even lower, single digit GPU load % at times of worst FPS as they're CPU limited that badly.

Those 1-10 sliders mainly hit the CPU
Why? see above comment. I'm getting around 1GB of VRAM used in-game with performance settings

You're also running 40% less pixels at 40% less frame rate with a card roughly twice as powerful, your results and mine pretty much line up. Also, the last 3 settings (8, 9, and 10) are View Distance, Ambient Occlusion and Shadow settings which will absolutely wreck GPUs.
