Hello, I am trying to put together a budget build and I need some help. I already checked out the sample builds and I am still a bit confused.
The main thing I want to do with this build is play WoW, primarily raiding. I would like to be able to raid in 10 mans or 25 mans and be able to do battlegrounds that have 40 people in them. High settings would be preferable.
I don't have any parts that I can reuse except that I do have Windows 7.
I need the parts for the entire computer, plus a keyboard, mouse, headset and monitor. I am trying to spend around 700-800 dollars, less if possible. I just want to be able to play all aspects of WoW on medium-high settings with no lag (raids, big bgs, major cities, ect).
With MoP in mind I'd recommend a GTX 660, 3570k along with an aftermarket cooler (4.1-4.3GHz OC) and 2x4GB RAM. If there's money still, get a 128GB SSD and enjoy fast loading times.
With that budget the above can be a bit tough. See if you can find a 2500k for a bit cheaper, a GTX 460 or perhaps even a really cheap GTX 560 Ti (>$180). Still 2x4GB RAM. Skip the SSD if you are short on cash - all it does is speed up loading times. Random $100 monitor, Logitech G400 and Microsoft Sidewinder X4.
If the above is still too much, I'd start to pull in on some points. A Pentium G2120, still with a GTX 460 and 2x4GB RAM. Cheap(er) H77 motherboard along with the peripherals above.
