    sounds about right, i use a nividia gtx 240 or w/e and i can run on medium ish with 20+ fps in a 25man. and other then that high is around prob 45, so youll get good graphics

    1920x1200 24'' screen (already have that )

    Questions:

    - Is this a good setup to play WoW on? Wich settings/fps can I expect at wich resolution? In 25man raids etc.
    - Can I make use of DirectX11 for wow and how do I do this? I read something about manually enabling this, how does this work?
    - Will I also be able to play games like LoL, CoD4 ,MW1,2,3?, the occasional racegame?


    Thanks in advance

    stable 60 fps on medium settings maybe down to 40.. u will be able to run all those games u mentioned on medium/high without any issues.. it is close to my old s775 setup which had a e8500, 5770 and 8gb of ram and i tried all those games u mentioned and i even played black ops on 40-50 fps on highest settings

    What is "the hype" exactly? Because if you are calling Sandy Bridge CPU's a hype, I am gonna start grinning ear to ear.

    the "hype' is ppl thinking they need bigger beter and more than they realy need.

    So you would suggest people to buy a CPU from a previous generation for the same price? (in the Netherlands your CPU is actually more expensive than a i3 2120, hell, it's around the pricerange of a i5 2400)

    I have no doubts your setup works fine, but try finding your CPU for a cheaper price than the I3 Sandy Bridge CPU's.

    Right now, if you are getting a new setup it's best to be ready for future upgrades.
    The 775 socket you are using is useless nowadays.

    There is no hype and no one is ripping anyone off. Your detailed Dell system information isn't going to help anything, if you notice OP has already chosen the route to go.

    You need pairs of RAM sticks. I'm not sure why the posters that commented on it didn't realize you were talking about only using one RAM stick. It won't work with odd numbers of RAM sticks, so get 2x2 or 2x4GiB.

    I should amend that to say "some", not "the". You were good .

    As to the guy who recommended an LGA775 setup, that's a bad idea for a modern computer. My old Core 2 Quad Q9300 computer loses to even my wife's i5-750 by such an immense amount in WoW performance it's silly. Against even a stock i3-2120, it would be even worse. My 2500K? Fuhgeddaboutit.

    The "hype" is futureproofing. If you buy a computer that performs "okay" today, it'll be slow in a year or two and prehistoric in three or four. If you get a computer that's fast today, it'll be okay in a year or two and slow in three or four (but still perfectly useable.)
