Will this pc be good enough for gaming

Do you think this system would be good enough for playing new games on high:
-Amd phenom ii x4 960t 3GHz
-MSI 970A-G45 AM3+
-4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM
-VGA eVga GTX550Ti 1GB DDR5
-ATX 560w Blueberry G51
-WD Caviar Blue 500GB 7200rpm
-Sony Optiarc 24x DVD R/W

And could i play wow on ultra on it?

Would be better with a 560Ti, and an SSD.

That will be fine for gaming. Unless WOW has had a graphic overhall it will easily play it on ultra, its quite an old game!

You'd be fine for modern gaming as well if you toned down the graphics a little. Games like BF3 eat as much as you can throw at it. A gtx560 would give you ultra on that but only just.

Hm... The HD6850 looks neat... Is it better than the gtx 560 (non ti)?

The 6850 is a hidden gem!

-t was a little poop/average at launch but with latest drivers and updates its a beast! Its almost doubled irs performance. Its probably on par with the 560

For the sake of the discussion (and the rules, I guess xD), I won't be speaking in Serbian to the OP, but I guess I should point out to everyone else that here in Serbia, the cheapest prices are with a PC pre-built by the stores that sell them. And since I don't trust stores like that and wouldn't even if it could save my life... xD

4eyed, if you really have the cash for a new PC, build it yourself. The trivial stuff you can buy anywhere, but good GPUs, CPUs and especially power supplies can only be bought in Europe, or even better, the US. It's a costly purchase, but you'll be sure that you're getting the quality merchandise, not like the class Q crap stores sell here.

Unless, of course, you really just wanna play WoW and nothing else, then I guess it's alright xD
