So I was looking for a cheap PC that I can build for around $300 that could be gamed on. Mainly Warlords of Draenor with no lag. I found one, but I don't know how well it will perform.

AMD A8-5600K 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor

MSI A78M-E35 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard

Crucial Ballistix 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

WD Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hard Drive

Corsair Builder 430W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case

I was downloading drivers for my computer. I downloaded the SATA driver and i got a folder named "Disk" inside of the folder were folders...



How am i supposed the 'install' those?

This show is the best. Not surprised it beat the old record.

woot another giveaway

It's between the Sapphire and Gigabyte, but not too sure yet

I dont plan on performance tuning(OC) unless i need to.


The CPU cooler i have is the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus.

Thanks for all the info. Looking into that Sapphire one also.


I have:

AMD FX-8320 8-Core Processor


What is the difference between these 2 video cards?

I'm planning on getting a new video card. Between these two.


If i get one of those will i need to get a new PSU? As of right now i have a 450watt PSU in my computer.

Have you taken a look at your temperatures?  I have a GTX 285 that runs around 85 degrees Celsius, once it breaks that threshold of 85 it starts crashing on me.  I have excellent air flow and virtually no dust in my case, but the card just naturally runs really hot.  A quick solution is to manually go into the Nvidia control panel and crank up your fan manually.  I put mine up to 100% and never get any crashes any longer.  

  Assuming you don't have a heat issue, and your card is just failing, a 7950 or 7970 is really a ton of over kill for warcraft.  However, it should last you a good long while and will handle anything thrown at it for only $100 more than the 650, which doesn't compare in more demanding games.

My gpu is running at 50 degrees Celsius.

Okay thanks for the help ill look at those 2
