My dad and i have been playing World of Warcraft together for some time now, And his computer is a Macintosh Laptop currently -- He can barely see the chat and it runs very poorly in heavily populated areas within the game (Dalaran! Yikes)
So i decided to try my best and put together something he can afford to be on par with me when we play.
I REALLY REALLY REALLY would appreciate any input on this as i am a really big noob. I have built my own computer but it has been 2 years so..
Again, We are on a 800 Dollar give or take budget so keep that in mind when you are suggesting (Thank you!!)
Ok, Here's what i have thusfar:
ASUS M4N72-E AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
I really had trouble picking a motherboard. I'm not sure what i needed other then ATX to match the case.. lol!
XCLIO Computer Case:
XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case
I chose this one for its size, Cooling capabilities and it's on sale this month! Woot
PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified (Dual 8800 GTX and below) CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7
This.. Might be a little bit overkill. But since im doing a 9800 and the Phenom processor listed below i wanted to be sure i would have enough power..
eVGA 9800GTX+ 512
This is the same video card i'm using in my computer.. This and the case i chose are probably the only parts im really comfortable with
AMD Phenom 8750
This is on sale for a good price. I hope it will work out for what i need it to do. It's better than mine !
Corsair 4GB DDR2 SDRAM
I love corsair
I HAVE NO CLUE if this is ok or not.. Errr.. /hides
Again, Very inexpensive, And this is the one thing on my PC's over the years that break. So i got two.
Windows Vista Home Basic
I still use Windows XP on my machine, But you cant even get that anymore. This is the cheapest Vista they have to offor. What do you think?
