Hi Everyone,

Are there any world of warcraft players here ?

If there are can you look at my parts list that i'm awaiting delivary on for my new game rig (i'm on a tight budget being a father of 2 & all that)

with WOW using at least 2 cores by itself, I would get a quad core cpu so that it will be efficient while running windows and other tasks in the backround.  What system are you using now?  You may be better off simply upgrading that one and also save money


Dell 24" UltraSharp 2408 (1200p) and 50" hdtv
Windows 10 os
Asus Crosshair VI x370 mainboard
AMD Ryzen 1700 @ 4050mhz cpu

Artic Cooling Freezer 240 AIO cooler
GSkill 16gb ddr4 @ 3333mhz ram
XFX amd390 8gb video
Samsung 960 evo M.2 and 850 pro SATA3 ssd's

PC power & cooling 750w psu
Antec 900 case

My old pc was a phenom 3 core that the motherboard got fried by the psu.

I have read great reports about the G3258 when overclocked and the way it performs when playing warcraft.

I could still change the Gpu as it's not been sent to me yet.
I have a max of £120 to spend on one.

What country? Would you consider used?

I used to play WoW on my netbook but had the graphics turned down of course. That machine should do ok but may suffer when in a major city.

270 is a stellar card for a budget build.

 

Paired a non-reference short 270x (was only like $10 more then the 270) with a 4430 on an Asus ITX mobo in a 250D for a killer little mid range rig for a friend of mine, surprisingly fast for its price.
