I have a friend who want to buy a PC that can run wow at a constant 30 fps at about fair-good settings or better or worse for the money he has.
His computer (or laptop) at the moment can barely run wow on low settings in raid or battleground environments. I have never ventured into budget PC's so help in what to buy would be great. He basically wants the cheapest computer he can get for £300.
Resolution=Highest resolution possible for what he can pay for, let's say 720p or around this benchmark
Games / Settings Desired= Basically only plays wow and he would possibly like to venture into League of Legends and such.
Any other intensive software or special things you do (Frequent video encoding, 3D modeling, etc)=He doesn't really use it for anything else, but has an interest in making videos. His laptop right now cannot record videos due to bad laptop and fraps tanking his framerate to like 5 fps.
Country=UK(scotland specifically if that matters?)
Parts that can be reused= nothing.
Do you need an OS?I have built my own PC recently and I have windows 7 spare but I am guessing the OEM is 1 system exclusive? i.e. can I give him it to install windows 7 onto his computer, then get it back?
Do you need peripherals (e.g. monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc)? He has peripherals needed, just needs the tower.
P.S. He has limited knowledge of building, but I can help him
EDIT: Looked at some sample builds, one was like $480 I'm guessing this build would probs be best for him maybe a little cheaper.
