    Buying a new pc for warcraft

    So I'm thinking of buying this setup...

    Its a combo deal on Newegg for $805

    Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan (ModelESTROYER)

    ASUS P8Z68-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS (Model:P8Z68-V LE)

    ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Model:ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI)

    COUGAR A-Series A560 (CGR B3-560) 560W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Ultra Quiet Power Supply (Model:COUGAR-A560)

    Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K (Model:BX80623I52500K)

    Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT2G3D1608DT1TX0 (Model:BLT2KIT2G3D1608DT1TX)

    Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive (Model:ST31000524AS)

    I'm wondering if this setup will be able to run wow on high/ultra settings with high framerates. Also wondering if there is anything else I need to purchase alongside the combo deal for my pc, I know I'll have to get windows 7 OS aswell.

    I have around a $1,000 budget range. Looking to get a 21”+ monitor aswell.

    Looks good, will have no problem maxing out wow.
    I'd recommend grabbing a cpu cooler too, a hyper212+ or a corsair a70... so you can overclock the cpu.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One... now I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.

    I would advise against the GTX 560 myself. You either want to step up to the 560 Ti or step down to a 460. (The original 560 is more or less an overclocked 460). I would also stay away from a PSU from "Cougar" and go with something more well-known and reliable; Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, etc. Also, as RAM is fairly cheap I'd probably advise to step it up to 2x4GB RAM, but this isn't at all needed. Just make sure it's 1.5V and preferably 1600Mhz.

    As always, feel free to check out some sample builds here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-Sample-Builds

    Are you interested in building the PC yourself or would you prefer it prebuilt? A few items I would change in that combo deal and it is possible that it could in turn cost less or about the same if you are building it yourself.

    Thanks, Marest

    And I've never built one before but if it's not rocket science I would like to think I could do it. Shoot me your ideas please.

    what items would you change, Culadin?
