Build Custom WoW Gaming PC.
Many people play WoW on regular basis or computers cheap laptops, and World of Warcraft allows you to actually do it because it has really low system requirements. It can still be run on netbooks, low heat. And we can not blame you at the end there are people who do not care about graphics, but just enjoying the game itself, the scenario, communication, dynamics and atmosphere. But ask yourself why some old movies in black and white in color had been rebuilt? Because they are too interesting and probably their appearance in color! Same goes for World Of Warcraft – it looks and plays much better on powerful computers with maximum settings and resolutions. You find yourself just enjoy beautiful scenes, landscapes, sunsets – you can see in this game completely new perspective.
Now he is on a computer that allows you to enjoy WoW as we have indicated above? First you need a computer game – not an ordinary office retail store or a popular cheap laptop. And computer games are really different from anything no matter how many times you hear the opposite. Regular computer manufacturers try to reduce costs by installing equipment at low prices, charts onboard crap, coolers actions, even ones they use are not inspire anyone, much less hardcore gamers. Computer Gaming is designed and optimized for maximum performance, which comes at a price sometimes, but do Mercedes and BMW over the mini-vans well known: O) It pays to have a great computer built on what it comes to PC games.
We start from the beginning – pieces of equipment that have the largest impact your gameplay experience WoW in particular – CPU (central processing unit – CPU for short) and video (or GFX, graphics accelerator, video card). Both parties will have the greatest impact on FPS (frames per second) when the resolution and all settings are set to maximum.
CPU – CPU affects the computer speed in general, no matter what you do. There are some applications of intensive treatment such as video editing and gaming, so it pays to have the best CPU you can afford. I general, any modern dual-processor will be good for World of Warcraft, but we have some recommendations as to what would be more efficient and does not affect your pocket hard. Now you can choose between a big AMD and Intel offerings.
AMD has many dual and quad core processors which are really costs and be a good option for WoW. Eg Athlon X2 II 240 with 2.8 GHz minimum would be our recommendation, it’s great for the parameters of mid-high and monitors up to 22 “and it’s really cheap, can be coupled with cheap motherboard and either DDR2 or DDR3 – many options to build low-cost computer If you really want to play on max settings in any area of play WoW and the largest raids -. you’ll need one processor Phenom II, and although there are some basic issues of double and triple, we recommend Phenom X4 II 945 or better to stick to. The quad cores are cheap and can be a basis for the game machine really well under $ 1,000 that will play all games.
Intel – still offers Core 2 processors that are great for WoW, but are a bit outdated. If you want really cheap computer – stick with AMD if you want something a bit more expensive – go for the new line i3/i5/i7 CPU. I3 is more affordable Core 530 which can be combined with the range of mid and H55 motherboard DDR3 memory. It is just a dual core, but has hyper threading which makes virtual Quad Turbo-Boost and that the processor frequency increases with the load, including work well with single threaded applications and WoW. To ensure you’ll never see below 30 FPS down you can choose i5 750 that is less than $ 100 more, but it is a true quad-core processor that will not disappoint you in any scenario ( get the P55 chipset motherboard with her). And finally, Core i7 – King, excellent performance in all applications and games, probably overkill for WoW, but it’s a great investment because it will not be outdated for some time.
Videocard – the second largest, sometimes first, depends on the game you play. Create pilot image you see on your screen, more complex images require more power as your video card. Some built-in adapter is for Windows and Internet navigation, but it will not play a real game the way it should be. You’ll need a separate video card for the use of high resolutions and settings. There are many popular video cards on the market for WoW, you can choose one of the oldest since thay can be affordable and still offer a great experience playing World of Warcraft. From bottom to top of our recommendations are:
ATI Radeon 4650 512 MB DDR3
Nvidia GeForce 220 GT 512 MB or 1 GB DDR2 or DDR3
ATI Radeon 4670 1GB DDR3
Nvidia GeForce 240 GT 512MB DDR5 (better than 1 GB DDR3)
Nvidia GeForce 9800GT 512MB DDR3 (older, but with great performance – your best choice for now)
ATI Radeon 5670 1GB GDDR5 (may be some problems with drivers but good interpreter)
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 1 GB DDR3
ATI Radeon 5750 1GB GDDR5
Nothing more expensive would probably not give you much of a benefit for the money you pay. Shades when you set the Ultra it will focus even more expensive than the driver everyone is playing with still high, all other parameters can be set to the maximum and the resolution with a maximum of 28 ” monitor if you choose one of the last cards on the list.
Memory – If you have at least 4 GB of RAM you do not have to worry too much. Even if you only have 2 GB and still use Windows XP, you’re good to go if you’re on a tight budget. Windows Vista or “7″ will be much better with 4GB of RAM if you want to have something left for WoW. Just look for the type of memory that is compatible with your CPU and motherboard. Like all i3/i5/i7 will require DDR3 memory, AMD processors work with DDR2, they are about the same price now so you’d better look DDR3 because it is newer and faster. Memory speed be varied, as can be 667Ghz DDR2, most popular and fastest 800Mhz 1066Mhz does not work with all processors and motherboards. If you get DDR3 then you’d better go with 1600Mhz as the most profitable, popular, RAM supported. If you are thinking about 6 or 8 GB, then keep in mind that WoW does not need it, you have some other applications that use that much – go ahead. Of course, if you look i7 X58 card then you should get 6 GB kit triple channel memory for better performance.
Motherboard – not so important as it is more or less modern. Just look for the processor and RAM compatibility. For AMD better take some cards AM3 with DDR3 memory support, 785G chipsets are good, 790GX, 890GX, 790X. Some are cheaper GeForce 6100/6150/7025 or AMD 740, 760, 780G. Intel – everything depends on the processor you choose. For Core 2 you get better with P55, or if you do not have much to spend you can get P43 and G41 – really reduce functionality, but will not for now. Core i3 and i5 work better with dual core P55, Quad Core i5 and i7 LGA1156 need P55, Socket LGA1366 Core i7 need X58 chipset. Some motherboards AMD 785G or 890GX have as video on very good that can play WoW, but do not expect too much from him, he can be good for a while if you register for the new video card for example.
Hard Drive – modern readers do not differ too much, get one with SATA interface and speed of 7200 rpm, and it will be fine. There are some “green” hard drives with 5400 RPM but they are better for storage is not for games. SSD (solid) are still too expensive and not very popular. WD VelociRaptor 10000RPM model is an excellent choice if you can afford it, really cuts down the loading time.
Food – depends on your CPU and video card. Make sure you get reputable brand, or at least read some comments if you are unsure or if you want to save money. There are good PSU expensive there but you must pay attention to a gathering. More most expensive are usually better, some brands are good: Antec, Corsair, Thermaltake, Cooler Master. If your video card does not require an additional 6-pin connector PCI-e power, then you should be good with a minimum of 400-500W, better driver a good job on the 500-600W power supplies. For all the video cards mentioned above you do not need more than 600W even with i7, but you can certainly choose any PSU you with more power if you think you might need.
Cases – some believe that it is not important – they saw no cases of actual game. Advanced chassis for gaming computers not only looks good with LEDs and side windows, but it cools as good. There are usually bigger than the average fan (120-200m), there are several of these fans, perforated panels for better ventilation, advanced placement and PSU fan, hideouts for professional wiring and more.
CPU Cooler – something that makes computers different game – using a chiller replacement. CPU cooler good works quieter and more efficient than stocks. Aftermarket cooler will prolong the life of your CPU to operate under lower temperatures and will overlocking – accelerating CPU without damaging it as times are within limits. Eg Core i7 920 with cooler Xigmatek Dark Knight can work on 3.6GHz instead of 2.66 GHz frequency by default. It makes much difference!
