PC for WoW 1500usd

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello people. Im looking for your help and wisdom in this PC building thing as Im a complete ignorant in the matter.

 

Budget and location:

My location is México, but Im buying everything in the United Stated so the budged will be $1200 - $1500USD. Im willing to up as high as $1700USD if its required to achieve good performance, But the less I spend the better.

 

Aim:

Im looking to play mainly WoW, like, 90% of the use of this PC will be WoW. The other 10% Im thinking in games like RE2 Remake and a bunch of older games that I haven't had the chanse to play, like Bioshok Infinite and Metro Redux.

I also like to play DayZ (as unoptimized as that game can be).

 

Monitors:

Two. One at 1440p 60hz and the other at 1080p 60hz. 1440p to play and the 1080p to web browsing while running the game, discord and things like that.

I already have a 1080p monitor collecting dust under my stairs but I want to step up a little to a 1440p resolution.

Is a good idea to have two monitors with different resolutions?

I still have to buy the 1440p monitor but I will do it outside the budget. Any recommendation is welcome.

 

Peripherals:

I need everything but I think that's a research I can do myself. Nor the monitor or the peripherals are included in the budget so It doesn't matter.

 

Why I am upgrading:

As computers goes I only own a Macbook Pro for music production. Not gaming on that thing.. Also, I don't care at all about the looks of the pc, a boring black box under my desk is perfectly fine for me.

 

Hope you can help me with my build. I tried to be as clear as I could as Im still learning english. And thank you very much!

 

 

Edit: Added hz for the monitors.

Added some rgb fans for looks.

Since the motherboard has no wireless wifi connection added good and cheap usb wifi card.

Found the hz platinum in good price.

That video card will play you WoW pretty nice

That a-data ssd is very good fro the price, check reviews online!.

Found 2th hdd for pretty cheap.

16gb of rgb ram made for ryzen, can add more later.

That motherboard has rgb and it is pretty good.

Need a decent cooler for that ryzen.

That ryzen processor will serve you many years.

Asus 27" TUF Gaming VG27BQ, 165Hz (OC) WQHD is pretty good with hz of 165 and 1440p resolution.

People like to give Razer a hard time. I've got a Man O War, Mamba wired and Black Widow Chroma V2. All were ordered just under 2 years ago, 15Dec19 to be exact. They all still work like they did on day one. My mouse did quit this last week, but that wasn't due to Razer. It was my fault. I needed to clean my left click button under the panel. In a *sauced* mid game rage(the mouse wouldn't stop left clicking), it got bashed on my desk. I will say that the mouse is surprisingly tough. Solid oak desk, after the first beating it worked right for probably an hour. Second time I hit it with the cord on the desk first. Not many mice will survive that.

 

TLDR: I've had great luck with Razer products. Only issue was my own doing.

If we are being honest WoW (and even RE2 Remastered at 60hz.) Could easily be achieved at the $900-1000 range. 

Wow is pretty low requirement gaming. (And I dont mean that in a hurtful way. I mean it in a save your money way.)

This rig will shred frames in WoW 1440p Ultra settings, and really anything else you throw at it considering you're not trying to top 60hz. 

 

You could throw a Fuma 2 in there for a high quality, low noise cooling solution if you wanted to round up to 1k.
