I was at microcenter a couple weeks ago thinking about building a PC to play WoW on since i decided to leave my good Phenon PC hooked up to my HDTV.
I was pricing out parts and stuff and ran across a one day special of an E-Machine for $249 ... way cheaper than i could build for w/win 7 included. So i bought it ... popped in a ATI 5570 and some ddr3 ram (4gb total). Also had an extra Rosewill 420w power supply that i replaced the 250 that came with the computer.
The bottleneck of the system is its AMD Athlon™ II Processor 160u low power single core CPU. For everyday stuff i am impressed by the little guy but for WoW its kind iffy at times.
I can't find any info on the motherboard that eMachine uses in the ET1352-01 desktop. It's generic with no identifying numbers that i can see and eMachine's website isn't any help.
I need to know what multi core CPU i can pop in safely. (They sell the 1352 series with an Athlon II Dual Core 240 CPU also). Anyone have any thoughts or know where i can find any info?
