    Posted: 19 Feb 2012 at 11:16am
Hello, I've been shopping around for a new PC and I've been looking at Digital Storm for quite some time now.
So, I'll be playing games at 1920X1080 and I wanted to know if this build could play World of Warcraft at around Ultra settings with 60+ FPS. Also, how good would this build be on other games like Crysis, SWTOR, Call of duty MW3, Etc.
Thanks!

Budget: No more than $1,200.

Expectations: A decent gaming PC that I don't expect to run all games on ultra settings.


Usage: World of Warcraft, various other games and basically I'll just be using it for anything.

Special Needs: I have a pretty dusty room which is why I chose the CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced, but will that be enough?

I would recommend The system you listed will play World of Warcraft with no issue, as that game isn't very demanding, however, other games such as Crysis won't be as butter smooth on high visual settings due to the video card and processor you selected.
 
I know your budget is $1,200, however, our ODE Level 1 system, which is priced near $1,500 is a killer system for the money, maybe it would be best to wait a little more and save up? That system features a much better CPU and video card for example.
 
In terms of dust control, you simply want a case with dust filters, the Cooler Master 690 II does have them.

Firstly, thanks for the quick reply! But when you say it "won't be as butter smooth" how much worse will it be exactly? Really slow or decent enough at high settings?
Thanks
