Hey guys, i want to build a PC for my Mrs to play WoW on. I'm happy with he game running on good settings and a decent resolution. Can any of you give me any advice. As low cost as possible is the aim without the game running like crap.

Thanks a bunch

i would suggest an AMD kaveri APU build, that should do just fine for casual gaming, and you wont need a "dedicated" GPU, as there is already one present on the processor die. the A10-7850K should prove ample for this use, but for anything a little more "hardcore", i would seriously consider adding a dedicated video card, the R9 280X comes to mind if you are on a budget. hope this helped :)
