Computer is fairly decent, all i use it for really is youtube + wow + skype etc, nothing major, i may play/try out games here and there but for the most part it's WoW.
I'm a graphic whore, so i always want to be able to play on ultra (except shadows i hate them lol)
Creating this thread to avoid getting parts that aren't worth the money.
I also have a problem, if anyone can share some light, i recently got a monitor (was running 1440x900) now running on a samsung syncmaster (1920x1080)
Wow is the same, stable 60 fps, and 40+in 25's / LFR, however i hooked up the two monitors to run in "Extended" display, i use youtube for the 1440x900 and wow for the 1920x1080, my wow fps is great, but it stutters randomly, kind of like if you was to minimize wow it brings the fps down to (by default) 30, my wow fps randomly gets killed to 30 while i'm playing, does go back up but sometimes it hangs around 30 for a while. I know this is just an issue with dual screen monitors as when disabling it runs absolutely fine.
Again i do hover over the other monitor while gaming to change a song or such, but my fps does stay 60, it just randomly drops and have no idea why.
Anyway upgrade questions:
I am planning on upgrading the following
HDD: i need a good internal storage, planning on using it for fraps so a 7200rpm and a 1/2tb capacity please (was looking at WD black)
RAM: my mobo can handle 32gb, i'm running 8gb 1333 at the moment, i know people will disagree with the amount, but i'm looking for 16gb 1600 ram, why? Ram is quite cheap, and it shoudl make some rendering programs faster when i use them.
CPU cooler: running an i5 3570k stock cooler (does perfect) however i'm looking for a better cooler now, for when i OC, nothing water based as i don't trust myself/water cooling with the computer.
GPUList a few between £100-200 please if you can, best -> worst, so i can have a few options) Always been an ati (xfx model) guy, used a xfx 5770, now running a xfx 6770 hd, it runs fine, however i'm wondering if the dual screen issue is because of the card, i doubt it as it runs 60 fps with both fine, just the 30 fps is randomly happening. Again i'll be playing mostly wow, so nothing like a 670 gtx, i don't mind switching to Nvidia card as long as it is worth the money.
Specs running at the moment:
Case: Corsair 300R
Mobo: Asus P8z77-v lx
CPU: I5 3570k
RAM: Kingston DDR3 1333
PSU: Corsair 650w Tx
GPU: Xfx 6770 HD
Cheers for reading and any help posted.
