Budget Build for World of Warcraft - Page 4

post #31 of 62
Thread Starter 
Only thing I dont like about that build, is the PSU and the GPU. I have never heard of those brands.

Swapped the HDD to 500 GB.

SeaSonic is regarded as one of the BEST manufacturers of PSUs. They even make some Corsair PSUs I believe.

Here's a little article about them:

Sparkle has been around for a while, and has lifetime warranties. They aren't widely used in the OC community, but they aren't crap either.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Sparkle card

you should be aware that world of warcraft is actually a game that uses a heavy amount of resources now days especially when you turn the graphics up to ultra running the game at max detail will be fine for most modern gaming rigs

how ever once you get into raiding and pvp the game slows to a crawl and is only acceptable on low detail which is why I keep the settings on low since my sig rig can't handle raiding/pvping on max detail even people with high end graphics cards suffer from this problem so its going to be difficult to play it at max detail

She is a very casual player. We raid sometimes, but most of the time its flying around questing, PvP or just dungeons. So I am not worried about that.

How much Wattage am I going to need for this rig? I just put the 650 in as a place holder to be honest.

Fair enough then it wont be a major problem to keep the detail settings at ultra just remember to turn them down when you raid sometimes and it'll be good

Yeah. I played a crap load back when Cata first came out, but it got old. She still plays though.

You could get away with less than 500w, but that 520w is a safe bet especially for future upgrades as long as it's a single card and not a GTX 480/570/580/590.

I had a Xeon X3440 OC'd to 4.1 and a GTX 460 1gb running and it handled it just fine.

And the Xeon has a higher power draw than that i3 ever will

There are some cheaper PSUs out there, but I know for a fact that this one has good quality to it, and fits in the case. Some other PSUs won't fit if you have an optical drive installed.

SIMPSONATOR Assumed the term budget was being used in the manner by which the word was originally defined. However, as this not being the case, SIMPSONATOR has built a list for the OP:
$477.92 w/out shipping. Plenty of power to maximize the graphics on WoW, a game running on a graphics engine designed in 2004

SIMPSONATOR Feels his advice would work better if he made a suggestion for each component, but here is the OP's request for a motherboard:

You cannot fit that motherboard in that case. The mobo is ATX, the case is mATX.

The WD Green drives are absolute crap.

And I highly disagree about the dual core AMD and onboard graphics being enough to run WoW. It definitely needs more.

While onboard might do it enough for some players, the i3 offers much more performance while still keeping the onboard capability.

If the OP wasn't using a video card, I'd recommend that PSU as well.

Date of the engine doesn't mean anything about performance. The WWII Online graphics engine is OLD... but it still keeps even the most high end systems at a crawl.
