I am building a gaming system. I plan on using the following for it:CPU = A10-7850K Kaveri MOBO = Asus A88X-PROand a bunch more but those are the relevant things. I am confused about this processor some. I understand there are 4 cores for processing and 8 cores for graphics. My question is this, with the cpu and mobo above, do i need a graphics card? Or is the R7 capabilty of the cpu good enough to run games like wow on high/ultra with the onboard of the mobo? Or do i need an aftermarket R7 video card. I was looking at the 260X.

Your not going to get very high FPS from WoW with high/ultra settings. There are a variety of tests/reviews of the 7850K that should help you decide what is required for your needs.

Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
