So I am now building a Budget Rig for my girlfriend. The ONLY game she wants to play on this rig, will be World of Warcraft. The rest of it, just casual internet browsing and what not.

I have come up with this so far.

HAF 912

Corsair CX500

H-50 (Coming out of my rig to hers)

G-Skill 4GB DDR3 1600

Samsung F3 500 GB

ASUS GTX460 Fermi

Intel i3 2120

The only parts I need to find for her, is as follows:

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131712

Possibly

As you can see by my sig, I would like to stay with Intel and Nvidia when it comes to the brands of the items. She would like to play with everything on High or Ultra (Everything but shadows ofc). I dont want something thats top of the line since this Rig will not be getting OC'ed or nothing. Just a PC that can hopefully max out World of Warcraft.

What do you suggest?

Is the PSU and ram something you already have as well? That doesnt seem to be too clear to me.

That's exactly what I thought. Got to link a mobo now

No, the only thing I bringing over from my old rig is my H50 and the Drive.

Why pick a haf 932, isn't a antec three hundred cheaper? I'm sure there are more "budget friendly" cases out there. I have a cooler master centurion which I'm sure is less expensive than that beast

922


If you guys can suggest a cheaper, but decent case, I am open to suggestions.

Preferably from Newegg. Still need a Mobo suggestion as well.

I switched the case to a 912. I got confused with what was the lower end CM case.

An antec Neo Eco 400w should be more then enough psu for this lil budget rig

4gb 1600 Cheap DDR3 ($30 shipped with promo and MIR)

Will she really need 1600?

EDIT: Nvm, I switched the ram to 1600, but kept the G Skill brand.

Replaced the HDD for the F3 as well

It was either that or the 912. I chose the 912 to support the CM brand

SIMPSONATOR doesn't understand the logic of buying a "budget" PC for a game that is quite the "luxury", as a pay-per-month game.

I would say max, 700 shipped. But that's pushing it. So far I am 614 shipped. Just need a decent mobo to house all this stuff.

The 912 Is a good choice. It comes with lesser stock cooling,but you get better cable management and you can add more fans later

I have tons of fans laying around from my recent and old build so no worries there. It is not like I am going to be pushing this rig hard or anything.
