Hello everyone, I had a big help last time in my thread about my current computer. I did not think I would be buying a computer for months, but tax refunds just came in.
This will be my first time building the whole computer and I have some questions on how to build it properly as well as the parts.
- $1000 is the upper limit for cost with windows
- Want to be able to do 25mans now and in the xpac
- Settings do not need to be max, but around medium with no shaodws; better perfered
- I have a 1280x1024 moniter already
- No overclocking by me, do not want to hurt my system
How to build:
I am mostly concerned about the motherboard and grounding it. Are their instructions with the mobo that will tell me what to do?
Is the mobo just held up by a series of screws?
Do I need to add a washer or anything before the screw?
Is the powersupply what the board uses as a ground or is the case also used as a ground?
Is the default cpu fan and paste they give me with the chip sufficient(no overclocking by me, only if chip is set that way by default)?
CPU: What is the difference between the i5/i7/chip none linked? does it make a huge difference for wow/gaming?
None's build. I like everything I see, but I have no idea about the CPU. Is it good? Would it be worth investing in a better one? I want one that can last me about 5 years, or be replicable in about 3.
Is everything none linked compatible with eachother, as I have no idea how to find out if they are. Same for any other system linked. Is there a way I can check? I really dont want to buy everything and then realize they do not work together, I hate when I do that...
