  1. Hey, I was planning to build a new PC mainly because my current one is pretty beat up and old. I don't want something high-end, but I want something that will be able to run World of Warcraft on good/ultra settings with decent fps. So I went and looked up certain parts and it seems like they are compatible with one another, but I want to double-check. Also, I would appreciate if you guys gave any tips/hints, like should I change a certain part or something?

    Not too shabby

    Hey, those parts are pretty good for the price, but I have 2 suggestions, this processor is much, much better for only a little more money.

    Item#: N82E16819103652 (newegg item number)

    and the video card is pretty old tech (HD4670), if you can find a good deal go for a 5770 or 6770, they will give a good boost in FPS over the 4670.

    This one is probably the best deal on newegg right now for a 6770.

    PS- sorry I couldn't post direct links yet as I am a new poster

    There's no need to go though all this... common sense tell most to:

    Check the motherboard specs for compatible CPU's and memory
    Everything else like a quality power supply, CPU Heatsink/fan are all you need, besides hard drives and DVD/CD writers
