AMD Build - Need Suggestions

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I play World of Warcraft. I currently have a very poor computer, so I am thinking about building my own. I have never built my own computer, and have minimal knowledge about building computers. So far I have come up with:

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103727

Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131647

Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811121096

Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-015-_-Product

CD/DVD Reader http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

Heatsink http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product

Hard Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-185-_-Product

Graphics Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo

Still undecided on Hard Drive and Graphics card. To give you a general idea, I want to be able to run World of Warcraft at 60 FPS on Good to Ultra settings in a 25-man raid environment. Open to any suggestions/changes of the current parts, and what you all think I should get for a Hard Drive and Graphics Card. I'm also a little undecided on the case. Let me know if I'm overdoing it on some of the components, as I'm trying to save as much money as I can. I will most likely be building this during the summer time. Thank you!

I'm going to be honest, I don't get a solid 60fps on my sig rig in a 25 man raid with it maxed out....

Doing it on high, with 8xAA you should be golden with a 6850.

Well, I'd have Shadow Quality at Fair just so it actually shows player shadows, and my Spell Detail would be good and Sunshafts would be low. I don't think that'd be too demanding, eh?

Another PSU. And Indeed, a HD 6850 should be good. Or GTX 460. Or HD 5850/5870.

Perhaps a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB.

Nah, It's really the AA and stuff that kills you when you raid. I'd try for a 6950, if that's out of your budget go with a 6850/70. The GTX570 is out of your budget but is actually better than the AMD's for WoW

Any PSU suggestions? I wasn't sure how much wattage I would need. Links are nice also .

(I will not discriminate between nVidia and ATI, although I'd like to spend 180-200$ tops for a Video Card)

That PSU isn't bad tbh, and yeah, the 1tb samsung will be fine.

As forementioned I'd like to save money where I can if possible. I've got a 250GB Hard Drive and my computer at the moment and 107GB is free...

And p4p3r, I think I'd prefer AMD.

The PSU just seems like Pumma shoes from China, but, of course, I wouldn't know. Haven't seen the reviews.
I do recommend this.
