    true

    but it's just so much hassle to get a good performance increase not to mention the dangers if you're not known with core voltages and cpu architecture in general.

    Research would be required and OC it far below any danger zones.

    Hey Chris, what do you think the computer in your video would run WoW on? Graphic wise

    Get Chris, what do you think the computer in your video would run WoW on? Graphic wise[/b]
    The XFX 9500GT 512MB from the video is a great budget card and can run all games at decent settings, any other 9500GT or the other XFX 9500GT's (1gb) won't be very fast. The XFX 9500GT is a great choice for a 400W Power Supply, I heard that the GTS250 might handle it on that Corsair PS and a Radeon 4770 might work on it too but they cost more and would be pushing it but in the video description theres an optional PSU with 550W.

    WoW is not a very graphic demanding game from what I know of and i'm sure the card will dominate the game at any setting/resolution.

    Just keep in mind that I only run with reviews and talk from computer builders and never tested them myself.

    If you plan on running more graphic demanding games than WoW, you should get a better Graphic Card than the XFX 9500GT since its not much better than the 8600GTS (will no longer be available online soon).

    A little suggestion: Since something like computer makes so much progress, you should put a date on the first post (Last updated: xxx), so people can see what time the prices are referring to.
    But other than that, good effort My computer is already below "low budget" h34r:

    change to these parts:

    Case: Nzxt Tempest or HAF 922
    CPU: E7400 or Q9550
    Motherboard: Asus P5KPL
    Video Card: Radeon 4870 (either) or Geforce GTX260 *evga brand* (can get something smaller but don't get the 9500)
    Power Supply: Corsair 650W

    Blargh and a Blargh, should cost close to the same amount and be better than what you listed.

    Theres only one 9500GT that I know of which is worthy of being called a gaming GPU, its the 512mb XFX 9500GT with DDR3 memory.

    Whats with the Blargh Blargh? :P Is the computer that bad D:

    One quick question, How come a different CPU? Wouldn't the Quad Core be better that either of the E740 or Q9550? I'm just wondering, I don't know that much about computers

    Q9550 = a far better quad core for a little more.

    E7400 = budget dual core

    Better Case, Unknown PSU replaced, Save Money on the Motherboard (I myself wouldnt use any mobo thats listed but you have no choice), Better Graphic Card.
