    I saw Sweclockers review of it. Looks ugly.

    As for the AMD A-series, yes they'll handle it fine. A Phenom II should handle them fine as well.
    Overclocking always helps, as is always the case. I had no troubles using the i5 760 in Cataclysm through raids on full-ultra (50fps+, dips to 26 on one specific scenario) and arenas alike, overclocked to 4.2. That said, PvE in wow is super boring so didn't do a whole lot of raids compared to others.

    I'm thinking something like this:
    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor (€94.90 @ Caseking)
    Motherboard: ASRock FM2A55M-DGS Micro ATX FM2 Motherboard (€43.00 @ Amazon Deutschland)
    Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory (€70.13 @ Amazon Deutschland)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (€72.90 @ Caseking)
    Case: Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX Mini Tower Case (€37.89 @ Amazon Deutschland)
    Power Supply: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (€54.90 @ Caseking)
    Total: €373.72
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
    (Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-09-22 16:41 CEST+0200)

    And then he can add a GPU when he has another 150 euro, or maybe ask for one for Christmas. The RAM is 2x4GB CAS10 2133MHz. He can get a copy of Windows 7 or 8 from University.

    Just wondering if he should get the A10 instead of the A8, has an HD 8670D instead of 8570D and it is clocked 200MHz higher for 25 Euro. Or there is the A6-6400K dual-core with the HD 8470D iGPU and 3.9GHz clock speed for 60 Euro.

    too bad some people cba to reply.
    Chill dude, I personally did actually reply and questioned if it was one of the good ones.

    Vectors it seems are the good ones, and if you can get such a deal, as in both for 250, I'd jump on that!

    Finally going to reset my computer for a few 'important updates' to Windows. Otherwise it would be staying on. I must say though, very proud of this up-time!

    Dayum. I also rarely shut my computer down, but that is just nuts.

    In other news, I'm slowly caving in to the idea of getting GTAV on ps3, having seen my friends and various youtubers play it it's very hard to resist buying it.

    Eh, never really cared for the GTA series. IMO it seems like unnecessary violence with no decent goals. I need fantasy to kinda cover up the violence and give me a good reason for it. :P

    But it's fun mindless violence, who could say no to that? If you like aliens, then Saints Row 4 is the game for you. Because you get to kill aliens, and have super powers and shit.

    You should, you have not lived til you've gone around the streets and smacked people with a giant purple dildo. There is no higher form of justice than being smacked by a giant dildo.
