Yeah with max settings and filters enabled WoW is a demanding game but If you agree to make some graphic concessions you can run it decently@60fps even with a 400€ poorman's build like a g3258+radeon r7 250x. Luckily for the poor ppl, wow is a game that still looks good on medium settings
Imho, buying a gtx970 or a r9 390 only to play WoW is a waste of money, a mid range gpu like the r9 280 is enough to enjoy the game in good conditions.
he bought a 144hz monitor so he needs 150 fps to take advantage of it.
You have to be careful that your PSU is enough for your GPU. The one you have listed at 450W is lower than what MSI lists as the 'recommended' requirement of 500W. (There's also specific voltage requirements for different rails but generally if the GPU requires 500W I would go for 600W minimum.) This one's about the same price if not cheaper and will work fine for you. http://www.newegg.co...9-048-_-Product
7 years of building experience and you advise people to buy a corsair cx ? LOL . that 450w seasonic probably draws more people and is more stable than that 600W corsair cx crap. never buy a corsair. their budget psu's are made in china and their top tier psu's are made by seasonic but just more expensive because they slap a corsair sticker on it. those are by far the worst shitty power supply's ever made. basicaly if you don't want to drop 200$ for a premium psu your only choice is seasonic. they are the only psu maker left that still makes good stuff in the low and mid end range. all the rest is made in china crap.
also , do not downgrade your gpu. wow has become VERY graphicaly demanding with everything maxed out. and with all the aa and supersampling settings to max barely playable . my overclocked 4690k and 280x has around 45 fps in my garrison. if you want to get the maximum out of that 144hz screen you definitly want a gtx970.
Wotlk baby or WoD hero, people will always try to belittle you regardless.
and why wouldn't they?
-my warrior lost half his buttons when i logged in after mop.
-locks lost everything that took skill once ( dot snapshotting, pet micro, getting rewarded for juking,),
-shadow priests get punished for playing the dotting game instead of just spamming blasts and spikes.
-hunter deadzone removal, free pet rezzes, trap launcher, traps triggering instantly
-ret being a 2 trick pony that is either shit or completely broken
-frost mages with stupid instants and free cc. they do not get rewarded for juking and kiting and hardly get punished either for not doing it
blizzard has to seriously do some shit next expansion instead of continuing to slowly turn this game into a console style action rpg.
