Buying between 3 computers


Jun 2, 2013
My friend is going to buy a prebuilt computer (he cant build his own) and what he will use the computer for is: He will play WoW and League of Legends, uses a webcam to stream, uses 2 monitors. He mostly wants to be able to steam in full quality.

Here are the 3 computers.

1: Corsair Carbide 200R, Cooler Master b500 500W PSU, Intel Core i7-4770, MSI B85M-E45, Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600 MHz 8GB, Gainward Geforce GTX 760 2gb PhysX CUDA, WD desptop blue 1TB, 3 years warrent, windows 8.1 Site:!tab:extra
THIS ONE IS FOR 1 409 Dollars.

2. Midtower (not specific), Intel core i5 4570 haswell 3,2ghz, Ram 8gb ddr3 1333mhz ripjaw, Geforce GTX 760 2gb, Gigabyte GA-H87-HD3, Superflower 500w. No warrent and no windows, we can fix windows for free which is most preferably.
1200 Dollars

3. Midtower (not specific), intel core i5 4570, 3,2 ghz, 2x4gb ripjax ddr3 1333mhz, Geforce GTX 760 GB, Gigabyte GA-H87-HD3, SuperFlower 500w 80+ certfiy
1250 Dollars

He will get about 1000 euros and he will buy a new monitor, webcam etc with the money so preferably not option 1 unless it's really much more preferably better


The i5 systems are perfectly fine, all of those systems are overkill if used only for the games listed. To max out WOW and LOL you can spend about $800 on a system. Mainly the 760 is a level or 1.5 levels over what is needed for those games (A $100 new video card can run WOW on max settings) but also the CPU can be lowered to an i3 or a AMD 6300.

For the systems you are looking at you will spend more but will have option to run more demanding games in the future, so up to you about the money. Spending $1,200 and getting no warranty is crazy though. I'd find another place to buy from. The first system with the i7 is not needed for gaming at all, the i5 is plenty to play at high settings in most if not all games.

I can play WOW on Ultra settings on my Intel Q6660 cpu with an older nVidia 250 card which is 2-3 generations from current stuff.
