Hey there!

I'm looking for suggestions on my current part list (http://pcpartpicker.com/user/bahawolf/saved/jVhFf7). I'll be doing the following with this PC...

  • Playing World of Warcraft (hopefully on Ultra)
  • Light gaming including Sims 3 / 4
  • Web development
  • General usage (internet browsing, etc)

Please note that I'll be upgrading the graphics card (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-06gp43787kr) within 30-45 days of purchase, if I can't play on "Ultra" within WoW. AMD cards do not run WoW well (in my own experience), so I've stuck to Nvidia for this build.

  • Are there any further suggestions?
  • Will the "temporary" card I've picked probably give me the ability to run the game on "Ultra" within the native resolution of the 27" monitor?

 

Thanks!

Hi Bahawolf and :welcome:

I think Core i5 is enough for any game.Not more than 4 cores are needed.Yes may overclock and rise the clock frequency.This Core i7 you can not load full.For this game World of Warcraft GTX760 is enough.If you plan in future heavy games like Crysis and Metro may be not in ultra possible.

EVGA Videocards are very good but I don`t think so about PSU.About monitor I don`t know.My eyes like LG or Philips.Acer don`t like.

Dell are expensive.

 

Thank you!

Also for higher resolution more video memory is needed.This GTX760 has 4GB so right choice,because there is 2Gb model.

Like Alex&Vanko said, unless you will be doing a lot of video encoding or using server applications, you will not really benefit from the i7(hyper threading). I recommend the i5-4670 if you do not plan to overclock and the i5-4670k if you do. In regards to your GPU, that is kind of overkill for just WoW, you could use ultra settings with a cheaper card, like the 2GB GTX 770 and it still supports 2K screens. You would also only need a 650W PSU with the parts I listed.

Maybe GTX750 you mean,because this one is more expensive. :wink:

i was referring to the 780 he mentioned, but thinking about it more, the 2K gaming will most likely need more VRAM, so the 4GB 760/770 would be best, and the 770 is more expensive :P

Thank you!


EVGA power supplies vary. They are made by a few different OEMs. The G2 type chosen here are very highly rated. Some of the others not so much, although they are in general at least competent and deliver their rated power.

if you can wait, the new maxwell gtx 970 and 980 are due to be released in a few weeks. this should drive down prices on the 770 and 780 considerably.

Hey synergy,

I'm going to wait to get the graphics cards until next month. At that point, they should be out already and I'll either get the 900 series cards (I heard the 980 might be $500), or I'll get the discounted 780.

 

Thanks!

I'm running WoW on my machine, listed in my profile, on Ultra using a GeForce GTX 670.

I'm getting 60 FPS, even in a 25 man Raid Finder running two additional screens, one with a browser and one with a video/movie. 90+ FPS during regular screens.

Awesome! Thank you for showing that!

Do you think I'd be able to get the same even with it being 1440P?

Since my video card is two years old I would suspect that getting 1440p at 60FPS shouldn't be an issue with a newer mid to high range video card.  Since I'm not having any issues I'm not looking to upgrade the video card and WoW isn't very multiple monitor friendly.  I am able to run three screen, but not easily and other than being able to do it, I haven't checked out my FPS running 5760x1080 for an extended period, but I was able to maintain 60+ FPS flying around.

I don't know if you have changed the pcpartpicker since the OP but I just looked at it and it made me laugh out loud. For the uses that you have described I don't see why you would need a *computer* that cost more than $589.99, much less a video card. Total overkill. So if money is an issue, yeah, you could spend a LOT less imo.

Hey Bludshot,

I appreciate it. :-) Money isn't an issue and I'm just putting together a build that I like and that I know can play WoW very well. If I choose to play other games later (like BF4), I'd like to be able to do so as well.

 

Thanks!
