Help me with my First build for World of Warcraft Legion game?

Hello,

I am preparing my first build. I currently use Lenovo Y510p. I would like to play World of Warcraft Legion and experience it on a PC.

I have researched and prepared this list. I would like to know if I everything looks ok. I would like the i7 processor but it is pushing my budget.

Here is the list:

1. Cooler Master HAF 912
2. WD Black 2TB
3. EVGA 220-G2-0650-Y1 80 PLUS GOLD 650W
4. CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB)
5. ASUS Z170
6. i5-6600K
7. Noctua NH-D15 SSO2
8. SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA

Suggest:

9. ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX

(OR)

10. ? GTX 960?

I am from India and the conversion to USD is 1200$ for this build. Where do you think I can save or replace with something more suitable?

  1. I wold not spend the money on a 6600K, sure it's a good CPU, but that is a bit of too good of a CPU for most people.

    You can max out WOW with an i5-6400 or 6500 with no issues. I am running it at Ultra with a last generation i5 with MSAA turned on which is very tough on the system, with 40 fps.

    Also an SSD of 256 or 512 GB size would be very good to get for fast loading of programs and Windows.

    I'd get an $80-100 motherboard, drop the CPU a level or two and go with the 970 card along with an SSD.

    What do you think about this revised build. I use an i7 so I don't want to go any lower than that. And this build is for me to stream some games or edit some videos. Suggestions on the GPU?

    I'm confused now, you went from an i5 to an i7, then say you already use an i7. Need some details here about what you are asking and what you are looking for and from what you are upgrading? If you don't provide the right info you will not get the right answer. For gaming, you don't need an i7 in almost any case unless you are trying to max out a demanding game on high resolution. Definitely not needed for WOW, even the new one.

    Sorry for the confusion. I play wow on Lenovo Y510p i7 processor. I multi-task a lot on it, watch a movie while playing or watching a stream. So keeping that in mind I wanted to go for a much stronger processor so when I stream it is enjoyable.
    I am trying to move from a Laptop to a gaming PC.

    I have been researching on the build from wow forums and narrowing down the build. Do you think going for the i5 6600 but with a GTX 980 be a better investment?

    You can't compare an i7 CPU to a desktop CPU without looking at benchmarks for both. Very likely your i7 will not be as good as a desktop i5. You don't want to get a 980 now, the 1070 will be more than enough for WOW and will max it out and then some.
  6. to play wow, all you need is an i3 processor and a gtx 950; why waste hundreds of dollars

    update: i just checked the game website and they mention core 2 duo from 10 years ago
