What FPS can I expect with this build?

Games, Gaming and Hardware
I currently play on my student laptop on lowest settings, 800x600, and no addons. I'm buying a new computer and I'm just curious what frames I'll get in a 25 man raid with settings still on low. If I can run on Med/High and still maintain 60 fps that'd great. Any recommendations are welcome. :) I have a $600 budget so...yeah. :/

Is that HD 6670 GDDR5 or DDR3 for RAM?

This build can do OK in raids provided you don't aim for ultra settings.

You will not get 60+ FPS in raids.
I'd replace the CPU with something that would get you near your $600 limit. Depending on where you're shopping, an i5-2500k would put your right under your limit.

Or maybe an i3 and you could bump up the video card to the next tier, but you may not need to.
the cpu and video card will hold you back, for sure.

it sounds like it'll be a LOT better than what you have though that's for sure.
