Build of the Month - April 2017
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

All of the parts on this page are Amazon affiliate links. When you purchase your parts through them it helps support the site!

This month
The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale.

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 7700K and would get more performance from spending that money elsewhere.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

Don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    One of the main reasons I was happy for flying was so I could easily level my rogue to avoid having to look for one specific person every time I got a lockbox.

    Can you change title to up for NA?

    I forgot all about the old glory days of roguedom - stop for one second, a trade window is spammed in your face, no comment, no "please", no tips. And then butthurt and nastygram whispers if you refused. Even during dungeon runs and battlegrounds.

    Ugh.

    I also forgot rogues used to get worthwhile stuff from pickpocketing. Is that even in the game anymore?

    I don't disagree with the pc builds on mmo-champion, but I feel like Ryzen (1600) will be a better buy than intel.

    For a pure WoW pc not, even with 4 GHZ a Ryzen CPU has less singlethread performance

    More like, go to broken shore to get 30 gold.

    More like, I went and got a ilvl 925 Band of Dark Millennia from Apocron.

    monthly reminder that the build suggestions are actually pretty awful for the prices, you can do far, far better, and the only reason mmo-champion does this every month is that they get referral revenue from amazon for linking to their products.

    what the hell, how did NA get both buildings up? EU is at 30 and 70 for both and it was contributing faster and got ahead of NA before, so how did it in a matter of a week managed to supposedly contribute half of NAs contribution? Either everyone on EU stopped doing legionfall WQs after they got flying or I smell some silent adjustments for NA contributions needed to finish the buildings

    here's to me hoping the buildings are up after reset and the champion gear and world boss are able to be hit again!

    They got them for free as a compensation for the servers being down for couple of hours one morning, or something like that.

    oh i see, thanks

    no way you buy 7600k instead of ryzen 1600. If you're on a budget you want your computer to last longer hence 7600k is not so smart choice.

    The Ryzen CPUs are most definitely not 3rd tier (lol this drivel, seriously have to be a complete mindless consumer to even think that was the case) components. My 1600 arrives today for my new build and we have a 1700 system upstairs that runs WoW, FFXIV, and all other games we have more than fine.

    Fuck buying Intel for the past 10 years, back to AMD for me.

    Which didn't really help so much as hurt us. Now I have characters stuck at the quest to turn in your first 100 supplies and no way to turn it in. The mage tower finally came down yesterday but I'm still waiting for it to be available to be reconstructed. And if I just hold on to supplies and do wqs, I'll hit the newly added cap. yay.
