Hi all, I have been an avid WoW player for years, but I've never gotten to play the game at a high frame rate or with ultra settings. Sometimes screenshots I see online don't even look like the same game as I generally have to run on around 3 sometimes 2 or 1 in raid situations. I recently upgraded to fiber internet and bought a nice monitor (LG 27UD58-B 27-Inch 4K UHD IPS Monitor with FreeSync) and now I'm looking to build a PC. This is my first time so the more information the better. My understanding from my reading is that WoW prefers NVIDIA graphics cards and is very CPU heavy. I see a lot of minimalist builds for folks like me, but I'm not trying to build for what the game is now, but what it may evolve into as I generally hold on to computers for 7-8 years and this game being almost 15 years old makes me think it has legs for the future. Any ancillaries that could add flavor as well would be a nice touch (I have a razer moba gaming mouse but two buttons are already shot on it). I think a budget around $1300 seems realistic to me, but feel free to push that a little if it's a difference maker.
