Default Re: WoW Computer Build

I realize it's overpriced, but I'm almost willing to spend the extra money for the convenience of having the store nearby. Not to mention it comes with a year parts and labor warranty, keyboard mouse, speakers, virus protection, ect.

What I'm wondering, is if anyone can spot things that can be changed with it to suit my needs better.

You get more than one year warranty on all the individual parts, and that is like $300 overpriced. I would avoid it at all costs.

"The Nine Hundred Phenom SOCKET AM3 SYSTEM is ideal for anyone who's into hardcore computer gaming"

Hahaha.

So your justification for buying this pc and throwing $300 down the drain is because you can buy it locally? That pc is equivalent to the one I built 2 years ago.

Well, for only $14 more I can switch from dual core to quad core

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...ic=CPUA-HDX545

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...ic=CPUA-ADX620

then switch the video card from the xfx to radeon

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...VCNGT240512XFX

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...=VCA5750SAP1GB

then finally upgrade both the rams from 1 gigs to 2, totaling up to 4 gigs.

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...DDR2-8001GB-CT

http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...DDR2800-2GB-CT

That would play WoW great, correct? Or do you guys see anything else on that page that should be changed?

Alright. Will that hold its' own with WoW? Should I still upgrade the ram from two 1gigs to two 2gigs? Also, is it worth the extra $15 to switch from the AMD Phenom II X2 545 3GHz Processor AM3 to Athlon II X4 Quad-core 620 2.6GHz CPUCPUA-ADX620?

I was looking at this too:

It's pretty much all I need I believe, it can be upgraded in the future, and it's local for me so I can go to the store in person .
i'd pay 250 max for that.
