I think we've gotten away from what the guy wants. Here are the parts you need on any computer. I'm giving you AMD because you won't notice any huge performance loss or anything. I was an all intel guy and then I built an AMD build it works great.

Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811119068

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813131603

CPU (processor): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819103688

CPU Heatsink (The cpu comes with one but I suggest aftermarket to keep temps down): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835106141

RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820227346

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817341022

Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814150450

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136320

DVD drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16827151188

TOTAL: $585.91

Then you need an operating system. XP runs slim but I don't think WoW will run on anything less than vista. In which case get Win 7.

Here's what you'd need if you want to go intel instead of AMD. Just a difference motherboard and CPU...

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813131405

CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819115221

Total with intel parts: $760.91

Wanna throw more money into it? Here's how to reach the 1200 dollar mark.

Add a second graphics card or get a newer one.
Get a power supply with more kick...700 watt plus
Get a quad core processor.

EDIT: You can get this graphics card instead the one I put on originally...but you don't need it.http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-464-_-Product

omg, thanks a lot! this is what i was hoping to get, I can learn from this, thanks a million. Its why when i dont have the money yet im posting, so i can learn ahead and dont get screwed over when i have the money.

I have a question about the processor, Integrated graphics on a processor, is it same thing as for graphic card? If so I wanted to get a dedicated graphic card instead of intergrated one. I hear those are a lot better, especially when they have ram of their own so they dont drag it from the computers ram.


I am not sure, been have trying to find were it says but the one you posted above is a dedicated one with 1gb of its own ram correct? I also read the comments that they have for it and says under cons: "Played older/semi-recent games at good settings but it choked up on most other newer games, even at lower settings everything was still a bit choppy, depending on the game."

So im just wondering if this really is a good one?

No that one you're talking about is a good graphics card. If you're worried about escalation graphics needs, get the HD 5770, the last link I posted in my edit. Again, you don't need it...but you seem not to take our skilled words.

Intergrated graphics is a graphics chipset on the motherboard that sometimes share RAM with the rest of the computer. They, on the whole, are way sub par.

I am not trying to put down anyone, or doubt anybody's knowledge here, I am simply trying to learn. I am sorry if I seem other way but really I am just asking all these questions to learn. For example I'm trying to figure out what bus speed is. I googled it but they don't quite explain it good enough for me to understand lol. Can anybody here attempt to explain me?

on the other hand i finally understand clocking lol, don't know how you do it but I understand what it does and the good vs bad stuff with it. At least what google told me xD

and I'm sorry but i still don't get if its a good thing or a bad thing when integrated graphics on processor like on the intel processor under tech specs it says it supports integrated graphics. When you say the word Integrated i think of a graphics card and from what i know its bad to have an integrated graphic card so when I read this in tech specs for the processor I'm not sure what to think lol

"They, on the whole, are way sub par." I'm sorry but I have no idea what that sentence means.

-Dummy over and out

Bus speed is referring to your fsb I am assuming?

This is the clock speed at which he motherboard operates and bases the clock speeds off everything else with.

So you will put the bus at a certain speed, then everything else is a multiple of it. When you raise it, you effectively raise clock speeds of all your components.

Example, if you put the bus speed at 300, and keep your cpu multi at say, 15, you will end up with a 4.5GHz CPU clock. It would also increase the clocks of RAM, NB, SB, etc. by 50%.

That is about the simplest I can put it, sorry, I am not good at explaining things without details and tech specs lol.

Onbard GPUs are built into the motherboard. Even extremely old dedicated GPU's are faster. Don't use them.
