When I was playing a couple years ago my computer always sucked. now i want to come back to the game but only if i can play it with no fps or latency issues.  Im building a computer and it will only be used for gaming.  How will this build run on ultra settings?

Fine.

Should probably drop the PSU to a lower wattage and better oem.  That kingwin is probably using a superflower, so if you do want a kingwin psu, do some research and make sure it's actually a good superflower instead of a shit superflower (unfortunately there are both varieties). May suggest an xfx, seasonic.  A rosewill 430/530 would work too.

Also if you're just doing Wow, drop CPU to a 3570k, the hyper threading won't get you any benefit.

if you're not overclocking reconsider your choice of motherboard and GPU, the 7870 should kick around the 660 easily enough

that kingwin is absolute dogshit, not actually 80+ rated and max 46 ampere and 552w on the 12v rail coupled with a 1 year warranty

if you're gonna buy anything kingwin stick to lazer gold, stryker fanless, lazer platinum or absolute platinum

I guess since my knowledge on all of this is pretty bad i should just ask what i should get all together.

Im going to be building a custom desktop.

My budget is from $800-$1000

I dont need help with the monitor, keyboard, mouse, or speakers.

Just everything that goes inside the desktop. So if anyone is willing to help out, my goal is just to be able to run WoW on ultra smoothly in almost any situation. thanks!

Or has anyone heard of Centaurus Computers? I cant post a link but they have 4 computers i was looking at, the paladin, hunter, cassandra, or sentinel, all between $750-$900.  If the Centaurus Paladin is good enough to run the game on ultra with no problems id be going with that. im mainly concerned about bgs and arena, smooth in large cities and raids would be a plus.

I was originally planning a 7950 with a 256gb ssd build for 1100 but if you'd prefer cheaper and just tailored for BGs and arena then I'd suggest something like this:



PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU:  Intel Core i5-3570 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($205.53 @ Amazon)
Motherboard:  Asus P8B75-V ATX  LGA1155 Motherboard  ($94.98 @ Newegg)

After looking around the forums and other places this is what im going with, comes out to $900 roughly

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570 Unlocked $205
Graphics Card – Evga GTX 660 $219
Mother Board - MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $109
Cooling - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $32
Power - Antec BP550 Plus $64
Memory - Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Lowprofile 8GB $53
Storage - Samsung MZ-7PC128D/AM 830 Series 2.5" Solid State Drive Kit - 128GB, SATA III, 6Gbps, Norton Ghost 15, Desktop Upgrade $109
Case - Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower $109

How's that sound? will everything run well together?

tbh I'd prefer you bought the 7870 I linked, it's roughly the same price and while the cards are very similar in performance the GHz version plus the new AMD drivers should ensure it performs and cools better

also, where the fuck can you find a Samsung 830 128GB IN STOCK for $109?

I'd also prefer you upgraded to a HCG 520 over the BP series, BP is okay for lower end or cheap builds, for this I'd really prefer the more solid antec PSU

case is fine, I think it looks dog but your case, your preference

Would also suggest not buying the aftermarket cooler (212) unless you either

1) switch to an unlocked CPU (3570k) and overclock

or

2) really, really don't like the tiny bit of extra noise (read: you won't be able to tell because of the loud ass GPU fans anyways)

Also, unless you do (1), drop the mobo from a z77 to a cheaper chipset that doesn't support unlocked CPUs.  The 1155 socket is nearing end of life soon anyways, 1150 is almost out.  So it's not like you're ever going to be buying an upgrade on a 1155 motherboard you buy now.

I'm not sure if you've already made your purchase, but if you haven't consider checking out Techreport's system guide. They provide Newegg links and explanations for each choice.

My computer is probably as good as this (better GPU, worse CPU) and I run WoW ultra fine. Usually about 200 FPS with shadows off... no idea about shadows on but yeah. I'm sure it's fine.
