Hey guys, looking to invest in a new computer. I'm looking for something nice, but I don't want to break the bank TOO much. What would you consider the MINIMUM system specs to run wow at OPTIMAL settings?
Don't worry about putting pricing together... I just want your opinion!
built a computer awhile ago for about 500 dollars.
AMD athalon x2 3.0 gig quad core
ATI Radeon HD 5570 vid card.
4 gigs of DDR3 RAM
(random other things not relevant... 800 gig HD etc.).
Even with a mid-end GFX card like that i run WoW on ultra at about 50-70 fps most times. Considering on my old system i considered "good" fps to be around 25 i'd say you might be able to run the game maxed out around that with stats a little less than mine lol.
good luck :)
Thanks! I'm currently running around 25 on low settings. It just doesn't make for a good time on wow!
I'm happy with what you listed, as that is exactly or close to the system I was looking to build with a slight video card upgrade. Thanks for the confirmation.
