Warlords of Draenor and a old computer Help I need a upgrade

Ok so as most of you know the new World Of Warcraft expiation came out .Me being that last minute person that I am I didn’t download the game till the day before the release (this coming back from a 1year hiatus ,I wanted to give it another chance) so a little back story I bought my computer about 4 or 5 years ago . And have gave it two up grades from when I bought it I got a better power supply and a bought it a new graphics card .so about 2 months ago the graphics card finally gave out on me and started freezing up my computer every 30mins or so, and I reverted to the built in graphics card.

I came to Build a PC to see if you guys can help with choosing a new graphics card .I am willing to sped 220 on it but nothing more .I would really like to see this game in ultra setting or least close to it. running at 60fps is more important to me


Here is the link to my current pc

COOLMAX CTI-700B 700W ATX12V SLI CrossFire Power Supply

I really hope im not asking for to much with the budget that im on

I would really like to build a new computer, but will not have the budget for it until mid next year
so a new graphics card is my best bet at this moment

  1. Best answer
    You will not run that game on Ultra with a budget of $220 you will also not even average 60fps high settings.
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Quad-Core 3.4 ghz $75

    That would be about the best you can do for you budget, without overclocking you need higher Mhz. This should help at least it will be playable.
  2. For that price a R9 280 is a good choice.
  3. R 280 match with a Athlon X3 @ 2.8 mhz wont cut it. WoW is still highly CPU dependent and will be for at least half of that expansion. I would suggest sticking with a Nvidia card for that game as it highly favors the green.

    Recommended Specifications
    Intel Core i5 2400 or AMD FX-4100 or better

    The Phenom II X4 is about even with a FX-4100.
  4. The gpu will be bottlenecked for sure, no gpu will be able to make you run wow at 60 fps with that cpu. But if you are planning on upgrading in 6 months that is about the best gpu you can get now and run it at 60 fps when you upgrade. As Delaro suggested you can also choose to upgrade the cpu. AMD is however not the best in wow performance, so if you are already upgrading in 6 months it might be a waste to buy another cpu and gpu now.
