    Recommended Computer

    Looking for a computer (desktop) used for gaming and other personal uses. All I want to know is what computer would you recommended that will be strong enough to run at least WoW smoothly at the cheapest cost of course. I am also willing to build my own computer for my own learning experience so what parts would you recommend?

    What would be your maximum cost, and how demanding is WoW (coming from a non-WoW player)

    Under 1,500 if possible, but preferably under 1,000.

    Now I would also like to mention that others may differ in opinions, as I cannot say it is going to be the perfect build.
    Also I would deem this build as overkill for just WoW, but it would allow you to play many other games, while still having a fast experience.

    Looks good, thank you.

    Anyone know any desktop computers that would buy that I wouldn't have to build myself?

    i know digital storm are awsome,they give you a full warranty and tech support and their build looks sweet as fuck.

    I would have to agree, tech support and warranty may be worth the extra one hundred bucks or two if it means saving the hassle of building it, troubleshoot, warranty claims, etc.

    But if you're interested in learning about computer hardware its definitely worth the try to build one. It's not hard, and there are plenty of high quality video tutorials online

    How about this?

    I have not added a OS yet and no optical drive (Use a USB Stick)

    U can go for a cheaper alternative case or a smaller SSD.
    This is overkill for WoW right now but if ur going to play any other games for example watch dogs u can play at high / ultra with a nice FPS.

    Don't think your going to overclock and overclocking barely makes any difference for games..

    Memory, higher then 1600 is barely noticeable.

    this is not enough for the 280x man,this build will pull more power than that.

    id get a minimum 600w the cx600 by corsair is a great choice

    other than that the build is very good! im sticking to amd CPUs for now but thats just personal preference

    This build pulls about 380W full load.

    I'm almost using the same build.

    80+ Bronze Cert. 520W PSU will do for this build.

    A Coolermaster V550 Semi-Modular will do aswell.
