So I've spent the last five hours or so researching PC builds, browsing this forum, looking up benchmarks and parts...and I've thrown in the towel. I still feel as clueless as I did when I started and all I've really learned is that building a PC is like legos for adults and I should definitely do that over anything else. Unfortunately my life revolves around murphy's law and if I so much as looked at a PC wrong it would probably spontaneously combust, yes I'm that computer retarded.
Therefore, I'm reaching out to you guys on bended knee...
Games: Just WoW. Right now the computer I use can only play it with everything on super low settings and gets about 30-50 FPS and occasionally lags just when doing a simple 5 man dungeon. So really, anything better than that would be fantastic. I don't need it to play with maxed settings, but medium would be nice and if I can get maximum settings within my budget that would be awesome too.
Other Uses: Just web surfing and video watching. The computer I have now struggles to load YouTube videos...
Peripherals: I already have a monitor, mouse and keyboard so I just need a tower build
Since I won't be building this myself I was looking at either of these two for base builds, and I'm flexible on cases since I know that adds to the cost, and I would of course choose performance over design, but the preferences were as follows:
Case: NZXT Guardian 921 RB Gaming Case
Case: Raidmax Viper Mid-Tower Gaming Case w/ 1x USB 3.0 Port & Side Window Panel
Again, I'm really open to suggestions or changes.
