    Good value? Worth it?

    Well I needed a new computer because I kind of got tired of running wow on all low with 3 fps :/ (Running a Nvidia 6400)
    Also Running a 1920x1080 monitor

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/iBuyPowe...&skuid=6980021

    What is your opinions on the computer?
    How much FPS do you think Ill get on High/Ultra on WoW?
    How about League?
    Any faults with the computer?
    Worth the money?

    Don't buy that. It will not play wow on high/ultra at all.

    The GPU inside is a GT610, it is the lowest kind of media card you can find. It is not made for gaming.

    What do you think graphics wise it could run because anything is better than my fucking awful Nvidia Geforce 6150 SE

    With a GT 610 you can maybe get 30FPS on low.
    The price is about average for a pre-built.

    Yea had a buddy that builds computers say you could probably get around 60 on medium settings and told me that the GPU is kinda poo but nothing you cant fix for like 75-100$

    You should ask your buddy if he can assemble the computer for you.

    If he knows what he's doing, he should give you a reasonable rig for a reasonable price.

    Thought about that could have saved probably around 100-200$ but through shipping because he doesnt live around here and I kinda wanted a quick fix since I've been raiding at like 3 fps and its awful

    If you can build it yourself (it is easy) then you could get a build with an Intel I3 3220 and a Nvidia 650Ti for around $550.

    That would play WoW on high/ultra settings at close to 60 FPS, might drop some in raids.

    Don't expect an earthshattering improvement. The GPU in that machine is still pretty damn bad.

    I'd almost say it's easier than lego, especially on Intel sockets.

    Are you really willing to spend $550 to go to 20FPS when you could spend the same and go to 60FPS?

    Even a GTX 640SE will play WoW on Ultra. A 650 will be nicer if you want to get max settings in more recent games as well.

    TBH I might sound dumb but coming from someone that had never built a computer throwing an extra what maybe 100-150 to have it built (Implying I buy the 650 ti ) Id be find with that and depending on how I feel ill probly wind up buying the 650

    Maybe on low sunshafts and shadows, on 1366x768.

    Naw, I have everything maxxed on mine and get 60fps @ 1920x1080, DX11. Although, disclaimer - mine is a 460 OC, and also the rest of my machine is very good. If anything the video card is the weakest part of it.

    Another thing I was running on like a 15 in monitor that was up and down Wide rather than ya know the normal left to right and that was I wanna say like 1440x800 or something and I was getting like 5fps but christmas I got a 24in monitor i think it is which a 1920x1080 which lowered my fps slightly but like I said getting 20 fps on lets say even medium etc would be nice and when you guys are saying like 20-40fps are you assuming in the middle of nowhere, the city,a 10/25 raid?

    460 is another thing. GTX 640 SE as you wrote doesn't even exist.

    A 460 is miles better than a GT 640, the GT 640 is a media card.
