Soon i'm getting a new PC, i asked for information on some forums and everyone seems to give me different answers as to
what i would benefit most from. Thats why im really confused. I steady learning more things about PC's but im still a
newcomer. This is my build:

My wish is that i could play World of Warcraft on Ultra with Maximum Viewing Distance (No shadows though) Also i'd love
to play GTA IV, Farcry 2, Skyrim. Not neccesarily maxed out but it needs to be playable.. maybe like 30-40 FPS?
First problem i stumbled upon is that some folks seem to be able to play WoW on ultra, and GTA on good with this card.
While other people tell me it's too weak and i should buy a better one.
Second is that my brother who has knowledge of computer tech says that this card is very good and i will be very pleased.
About the Power Supply, my brother also says that all this will run fine on, say, a 300-400 watt power supply. While
other guys on PC forums tell me that basically i am going to be destroying my video card slowly if i dont take a power
supply with high enough watt. And what about the Memory? Does this look alright?
Alright this is what people said about my build:
"I would prefer to see a 550W minimum PSU.
You will also need a SATA optical drive.
The rest looks good to me."
"You won't be able to max out World of Warcraft with max viewing distance on a 6670 unfortunately. With a some compromise
you will get smooth performance in-raid but as for 40+fps while flying with max viewing distance I doubt the 6670 will be
I would recommend the 6870, considering how much time you're going to be putting in on WoW and that it's only a little
more expensive than the 6850.
A good quality ~650w PSU would be required for any of those cards."
I don't understand, everytime i get close to a complete PC someone says that im making the wrong move. Also i dont
understand how i "cannot play wow on ultra and max view distance" with a HD6670 but i can perfectly with a 6870.
I appreciate anyone who reads this, thanks in advance
