Hello, After some though, i decided to go with creating a desktop for the first time. However, i do not have a clue how to set it up (I will learn tho) and don't know much on how to make one either. I need it for playing WoW, maybe some other games but i doubt it, surf the web, and sometimes school work. This is what i made by surfing through the web and picking suggestions:

If you guys have anything to say about please do! I need help so anything would be great! The price is pretty high at the moment IMO, so maybe i will switch something out.

 

Thanks!

Going to a mechanical drive and a lower video card are about the only places you can cut.

Okay, had a chance to look through it finally.

 

For school, surfing the web, watching movies, listening to music, you can get away with virtually any PC. If you want to play WoW (as a certainty), you don't need such a behemoth of a video card for it. You can go down to a 1GB DDR5 video card, maybe 2GB tops and run WoW at the highest possible settings without breaking a sweat. Beyond that, you're pretty futureproofed with an i5 4th gen at 3.5GHz and 8gb ram, a good sized SSD...I would downgrade the 970 Superclocked 4GB video card and go with maybe a high rated card that's running 1GB, 2GB max if you want to save some money now...and if you're going to store any sort of personal data, and it ain't movies or music, add in a mechanical HDD (500GB's are usually $50 or less, easy; I recommend WD's Blue or Blacks). If you do that, you can get the build below the $1,000 range and be pretty well established with a good gaming rig.

 

TL;DR translation: downgrade your video card since you don't need a high end one for WoW (but you will for future games; recommend 1-2GB tops), add in a mechanical HDD for personal data backup...the rest looks pretty solid for a long-term investment.
