Topic Screw the laptop! Getting a PC!
Hey, some of you may remember me from a semi-recent post about what to spend my incoming money on, I had a laptop in mind but after much thought i've changed my mind and built myself a new pc! Ready to be shipped pretty much, here are the specifications
It's rather lengthy, so here's a link directly to my build - http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/saving/show.aspx?id=421183
I'm pretty sure this will run wow in ultra, with no problems at all, the quad core and 560 should do the trick. But what do you guys think? I may dub down the price at a later point, but for now this is what I have in mind. :) I will be using my TV as a monitor, hence the HDMI output :D
Please no Trolling "Lol sucks go die" type thing xD
And please don't reply with "omg cool pc" as it doesn't really achieve anything :')
Anyway, just to clarify my question is; How well is this pc gonna run WoW? Especially in LFR and graphics intensive situations. Thanks alot in advance! and if theres anything crucial missing from my build, please let me know.

Looks nice. The only thing I would change is having a dedicated boot drive. One hard drive or SSD to boot from and a second hard drive to store your game files.
And it's nice that you have a K edition CPU. You have the option to overclock later, but it doesn't look like that little epic gem needs it.
Edit: If you can afford it, I recommend a 240GB SSD for your boot drive. From what I've heard, the higher capacity, the better they perform. And you have Windows 7 which supports TRIM.
