Thanks for the interesting link. I'm reading over it now. Although I can't find anything about a P4.

that link shows a single core Phenom II x6 being able to make over 35 (AVERAGE) FPS @1680x1050, i dont see where your link shows a P4 maxing WoW cataclysm @ any resolution let alone full HD.

Previous page shows a i7 980x running one core @ 60+ fps avg @ the same aforementioned resolution but that sure isnt a P4 is it?

Looking at that graph however an i3 (high clock) or i5 would do just fine for maxing WoW at a decent resolution.

Staying on-topic, an Athlon II X4 would suit you fine if you plan on using the computer mainly for WoW and other non-demanding games. The bang for the buck is amazing at around $99. Hell, even a good dual-core would work great for that type of game. The rest of that money could be spent towards an SSD for a real boost! If you plan on using the same CPU for a long time and being able to max out games in 2013, then hexa-core all the way! I don't think you'll really make a "wrong" choice in this situation though. Good luck to you, man!

How's that?

A single core of a Phenom II X6 runs it maxed out @1680x1050 at about 35FPS. Performance per clock doesn't matter much in a multi-threaded game, as the biggest bottleneck would be the lack of threads/cores. On a Pentium 4 you'd be looking at about 24FPS average. I never said PhII = P4 anyway, all I said was P4 could max the game, and that proves it.

I use a Sempron 140@3.6GHz at work, and even gaming on it, found barely any difference in performance between it and my Athlon @2.5GHz (2-3 frames) in games like Mafia II.

Plus OP never stated his resolution for gaming, and at 1280x1024, even a stock Pentium 4 would max it at playable frames, so what I said before still goes.

Doesn't matter if it's an i7 single core, if it's a single core in a multi-threaded game, it will not do anywhere near as well as a dual, regardless if it's a i7 single vs Pentium Dual Core or Pentium 4 vs Core 2 Duo.

Uh guys, Cataclysm is a game changer. Namely, it changes it to a DX11 game, so now it will take advantage of higher end CPU and GPU than before, as brought out in that Tom's article.

If you had an i7 and a GTX 570, it probably wouldn't go to waste. That said, I think my sig rig will do just fine, especially after I add an SSD and kick the RAM up to 8GB.

My WoW installation is 15.2 GB and the patcher tells me I still have 6 GB to download..

I'm sure some of it will overwrite existing data, but 16-18 GB is the realm we're looking at.
