Basically I'm looking for it to run World of Warcraft flawlessly, and to be able to play other games like Command and Conquer 3 and the like at 30 fps.
I would like it to have a bit of staying power regarding the future, i.e. hopefully able to play new games that come out in a years time with great quality.
The idea is to hand in a list of parts to a friend at a store I know well, and they'd acquire the parts and assemble the computer.
I know a few details so far:
An Intel Quad Core Processor, however I do not know the technical part of the name, so a good suggestion would be appreciated.
4 gig of RAM, again I do not know specific component names, or what I should be looking for.
I'm guessing Vista 64-bit to go with the 4 gig of RAM would be the right idea.
I would like to use the GeForce GTX 260 graphics card, if there are any particular specs I should be after please help me with this.
As for regards to motherboards I honestly don't know, any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
The integrated sound from the motherboard should be good enough for me, unless anyone has any ideas regarding that.
With the hard drive and cd drive do the brands and type matter? I don't know much about these or if I should request anything specific.
I don't need a monitor, keyboard or mouse as I have those already covered.
I've tried to be as thorough as I can with what I know, but if anyone can help out with ideas or suggestions or pointers as to what I should be listing please let me know, and I shall reply to any questions you may ask.
