    New pc

    Im looking to buy a new pc and would like something that can run wow on ultra settings. This is my 2nd pc purchase so I am fairly new to computers.
    I have one pc in mind that i think would run wow on all ultra. But i would like some advice.

    Processor 1 x Intel® Core™ i7-3770K Processor (4x 3.50GHz/8MB L3 Cache)-Intel Core i7-3770K
    Processor Cooling 1 x Liquid CPU Cooling System [SOCKET-1155]-Standard 120mm Fan
    Memory 1 x 8 GB [2 GB X4] DDR3-1600 Memory Module-Corsair or Major Brand
    Video Card 1 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB-Single Card
    Video Card Brand 1 x Major Brand Powered by AMD or NVIDIA-
    Motherboard 1 x Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H -- 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0-
    Power Supply 1 x 650 Watt -- NZXT HALE82N 650W-
    Primary Hard Drive 1 x 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s-Single Drive

    If your one wish in life is to run WoW on ultra, that PC is insane overkill.

    Very weak GPU in comparison to the CPU. It's going to struggle in new games. Drop the processor down to an i5-3570k since it performs identically in gaming as the i7 does and get something like a 7870 or GTX 660 (non ti).
    i7-4770k - GTX 780 Ti - 16GB DDR3 Ripjaws - (2) HyperX 120s / Vertex 3 120
    ASRock Extreme3 - JBL S300A - FiiO E10 - EVGA Supernova 650G - Corsair H80i

    Exactly what I have... An i5 2500k and an XFX 7870. Runs WoW on ultra at 60fps and Bf3 (1920x1080) with all settings maxed at around 70fps
