    Which computer out of 3?

    Amazon is having some black friday pre sales, and I had a few questions for you seasoned computer people.

    First I'll post links to the 3 computers I'm looking at (I'm not really good with computers, and this will be my first purchase without parental guidance):

    http://tinyurl.com/ccllyrf
    http://tinyurl.com/dyefuy3

    So the biggest thing I want is for one of these to play WoW on ultra settings without exploding. I raid 25 mans on a fairly populated server, so that'd be awesome.

    Secondly, I'd like it to stay competitive for a few years before I have to replace it.

    Finally, I was wondering if you guys think there'd be better deals on the actual black Friday instead of doing a presale thing.

    Sorry for any bad english (second language) and thank you in advance for any and all help!

    meh those builds aren't worth looking at imo (either too bad cpu or gpu for wanting to run wow @ultra with 25mans)

    Would that computer suffice for WoW on ultra with 25 mans?

    Rather low end GPU for an i7 Build. I am pretty sure the 620 is on board and not really meant for gaming. Depending on what it has for a motherboard and power supply you should buy a better video card for that and it would be great.

    Really though, if you want to get the best deal possible you do not want to go pre-built. Building yourself is a lot easier than you might think, you can customize the system to your needs so you are not overspending on some parts(like the i7 in that build, adds $100 and adds nothing for gaming) and spend it where it counts, like on a video card.

    the cpu is the one you should be after however the GPU (GT 620 is very very bad)
    perhaps swapping it yourself is an option? (seperate 660ti is +- $300 which might be too pricey )
    (or a budget and we can try to make a general list of what parts to aim for and see what you can grab with good discounts @black friday)

    CPU Wise yes GPU wise no the 620 is not really a GFX card for gaming

    I mean TBH the best thing you could do it just to build your own rig.
    get the parts and have a friend built it for you some computer repair places can prob build it for you for a small fee.
    If you don't trust your self to build it even tho its quite easy and there are several guides on youtube.

    have a look here http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-Sample-Builds and pick one that fits your budget

    Ethe one of these should be just fine

    Budget Gaming 670
    MoBo: MSI H77MA-G43$89.99
    CPU: Intel i5 3350P$189.99
    RAM: G.Skill 1600MHz 2x4GB$33.99
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon 7850$179.99
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB$69.99
    PSU: XFX ProSeries 450W$62.99 Review
    Case: Rosewill Challenger$44.99
    --------------------------------------------------
    Estimated Total Price – $672

    Recommended for:
    Strong budget gaming build that can tackle
    most newer games but will struggle slightly
    in really demanding titles.



    Gaming 790
    MoBo: ASRock Z77 Pro3$94.99
    CPU: Intel i5 3570k$229.99
    RAM: G.Skill 1600MHz 2x4GB$33.99
    GPU: XFX Radeon 7870$229.99
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB$69.99
    PSU: XFX ProSeries 450W$62.99 Review
    Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi$69.99
    --------------------------------------------------
    Estimated Total Price – $792

    Recommended for:
    Potent gaming build that will take care of
    almost all gaming needs; will exceed in most
    games but lacks the power to cope with really
    demanding titles at max settings.
