Little advice please


Dec 3, 2012
hi guys. I am a enthusiastic gamer playing world of warcraft and hoping to be able to stream in very good quality (atleast 720p). I am looking at upgrading a few parts as my pc doesnt seem to be able to handle the stress of running the game (in low settings at ~40 fps) and xsplit (program i use to stream). My cpu usage is sat around 99%...I am looking at getting the following:

Case: Cooler Master HAF XM Midi Tower £100

CPU: Intel® Core i5-3570K Processor £180

Mobo: MSI Z77 MPower, Socket-1155 (has bluetooth & wi-fi & ethernet built in) £150

My current computer specs are as follows:

My questions/worries are;

Would i be able to buy the new case/motherboard/cpu with everything be compatible?

Is the cpu a decent upgrade for what i want and will i see a difference in quality?

Is there anything i need to know about the parts before going ahead and taking apart my current pc to build into a new case?

If there is any information you need what i have missed off i am very sorry and please just let me know how to acquire it and i will do so.

Thanks in advance :hello:

The card i will be using is the amd radeon hd 7850. I am hoping to use everything i have at the moment but use the new motherboard cpu and tower, so the budget would be the cost of the 3.
