Hello all, similar to most of you I plan on raiding in Cataclysm. Being a 10 man fan I doubt I'll see much into the 25 version of content.
I'd like a decent computer that can easily have 40+ fps at all times in Cataclysm and will be able to occasionally Fraps a fight or two.
I have a couple of components used to in my current PC as upgrades that will go into this computer; so I will exclude the price of them.
Goal: Build a decent computer for around $600 dollars.
Current components bought to upgrade:
GIGABYTE GTX 460 1gb
Antec DF-35 Mid Tower Case
Components that I plan to buy:
SAMSUNG Spinpoint 500gb 7200rpm HDD ($55)
XFX 650W PSU ($90)
ASUS P7P55D-E Pro Mobo ($180)
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4gb (2 x 2gb) 1600 DDR3 ($85)
i5 760 ($170)
Noctua NH-D14 Heatsink ($90)
Current Total: $670
Any and all advice is welcome, this is my first time building my own computer. I'm sure I'm going overboard on one or two things and that is why I came here for all of your advice.
Thank you for your time,
