hi sherylsim at 1440p with dual monitors and playing wow at max settings, you will need 2080ti. perhaps sli- because from personal experience my 2080 isn’t quite cutting 1440p single monitor at wow maxed. I was able to reach average of 100fps but unable to reach the optimal 120fps for the 120hz monitor x34p

WoW isnt a GPU intensive game. The problem is the outdated game engine. You will never hit 100 fps in capital cities. 5man dungeons maybe. i max everything out with a 980ti in non raids.

Not sure if troll or serious.

My GTX 1070 can max settings for DOOM at 120fps, ROTTR at 70fps and most other triple AAA games for the past 2 years at easy 60fps with some minor tweaks.

WOW is such an old game dated way back to the Geforce 8800 series.

WOW started in 2004 and was updated along the way with 7 expansions? I’m serious, this weekend I can post my CAM game recordings on fps, temps and game (WOW) on 2080 1440p

Wow isnt optmized for multiple core due to engine age and limitation. You are still limited by cpu in player intensive areas. You can have 3080ti n your game will still lag.

if the intent is to play mmo game, it's better to go for an intel unlocked chip and o/c it to like... 5ghz+ bah

this way you lessen the fps tanking in mmo while not sacrificing much in modern titles (this obviously does not apply to 8350K - so consider 8600K, 8700K, 9600K, 9700K, 9900K)

WOW is mostly CPU bound so even a GTX 1050 is enough with a high frequency CPU.

If his SOLE game is just WOW, and gaming on high fps and refresh rate monitor, then an overclocked i5-8600k or i5-9600k oc to 5ghz is sufficient.

However if his monitor just displays 60hz, even a i5-8400 or an AMD equivalent is enough.

I am not really an expert nowadays so correct me if I am wrong.

both my monitors are 1440p but only 60Hz. is that an issue?

usually i will be playing on one screen and watching some tv show/movie on the other and sometimes in game i can see slight screen tearing. also not sure if its to do with vsync.

anyway, here's the thing. one of the monitors is 8 years old already and failing. i will be getting another monitor (havent decided which) with a higher refresh rate. so in this case right, one monitor at 60Hz and the other at 144Hz got any problem? i will probably play games on the higher refresh rate and watch my shows on the 60. can this work?

For wow you can probably max settings with average hardware except in

- 25M raids
- Crowded Cities

WOW is using an outdated engine so the only way to have high fps is to have high IPC. It favours intel cpu but i still wouldn't buy intel CPU to avoid the feel of being cheated.

TLDR: For GPU get 1070TI

Anyway are you getting a pre built rig?

1) u can use 2 monitor with different HZ , but there is some reporting the refresh rate of the gaming144hz monitor dip to the refresh rate of the second monitor when anything was playing or any animation on the second monitor. there is some workaround fix if it happen to u.
https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrac...ith_different/

2) wow really need high HZ cpu if u dont want the miniumun fps to dip too low during raiding.

3) this incoming 8.1 patch will have multithread optimizations for dx12 users. Lets see how much fps u can gain

4) AMD new CPU could be announced in about 4weeks time. Now is a bad time to upgrade anything. wait and see and decide later.
