I'm thinking about getting this custom built for 870. Can it run wow on ultra and other graphic intensive games like Dota 2 swtor etc.. Thanks!! =)
Yeah i just built my computer with the same graphics card and around the same specs and i run WoW on ultra in stormwind (shadow quality low) at 80-130fps and when im in unpopulated areas 200-300fps
I don't recommend it. FX-8120 is a very poor CPU and should be avoided at all costs. Also note ASUS boards tend to be more expensive than the competition.

If you want to stick to AMD CPU, you must get FX-x3xx series, ie) FX-8320.
thanks guys for the input :-)
