No matter what, if you have a gtx 660 even reaching the gpu usage 99% he will have smooth fps.

People there are using much crappier hardware and they seem to be having decent streaming output and even bf3 is much more cpu intensive though. I'm reaching 40% with my gtx 680 vsync disabled.
It may be more CPU intensive, but due to WoW's older engine, it's not that well optimized.
It's less demanding in some aspects, but more heavily demanding in others.
Let's see a link to a stream of you playing WoW on ultra while streaming 720p+ Your 680 is meaningless in that situation. If you think you can raid 25's 60+ fps on ultra, I believe you to be delusional.
If you advise him an i7, he might not be able to buy a new monitor. He maybe has a 1300x720 monitor which is going to be more cpubound.
Lol I don't think you know what you're talking about. At all.
Good day and Good luck to you both.
Ok I am probably demanding too much with the amount of money I am putting up, disregard ultra settings .. would it be good enough for anything besides low settings?

I actually have one more question , with the set up that was given to me .. Can i buy another Intel core? for example if i want to go with Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz?
Scoll down until you get to Build 3, it is pretty far down but this is a good guide nonetheless. You could even save up an extra $300 or so and go the "overkill" build which will run WoW on ultra in most environments except for 25m etc. you would probably able to stream/FRAPS on good-high which still looks nice.
I'd really recommend saving for the $1200~ one. It gives you a lot performance not only in WoW but it would be capable of running most new games on high-ultra.
Thanks for that ineko , very helpful .
An i7 is 30% faster than an i5 if HT'ed threads are being used. As far as I know, fraps is not using them. Fraps only utilizes 2cores.
If you get an i7 and using fraps, it's really a waste. Dxtory is so much better and is heavily multithreaded which can take upto 16 threads.
