My 11 month old daughter snuck close to my table and managed to knock a bottle of beer over my laptop,as a result I have lost 2 USB ports,a few keys don't work,it types in caps unless I use onscreen keyboard to switch,and its looking like the HDD took some damage as well.

Luckily I've managed to back up everything that I needed to,the laptop is over 5 years old now and I was planning on building a rig anyway,just not right now.

I was looking at the Ryzen3 2200g,2x4gb ram,gtx 1050TI card,250gb ssd,1tb HDD,but I am seriously considering getting the Ryzen 5 2400g,2x8gb DDR4,250gb ssd,1tb HDD and skipping the video card until next month and getting a 6GB 1060 instead.

Will the Ryzen5 2400g with 2x8GB DDR let me play the game well enough until I get my 1060 card?

My laptop is/was an I7 with a 1GB 630M and 8GB ram.

I've already got an ATX case,250gb SSD,keyboard,and mouse planning on buying the rest this week,it will be my first PC build in around 8 years lol(yeah I know things have changed).

Check out the builds over at the Tech Support Forums. I used to post there a lot until I got too busy to keep up with the latest tech but the site is full of highly-certified computer techs and Microsoft MVPs who will help you out.

The 1050TI is rather... meh to me. Might be fine for this game but in others it might suffer if you're trying to run everything on max settings.

http://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder/Custom/S66759-M347462.137575.426128.161079.52381vsS50925-M433194.188434.494033.161079.89317?tab=MBD

On the left is what mine is give or take the brand of SSD. On the right is what I assume yours would perform like with a rando motherboard picked.

As far as normal HD's go, you might as well get as much gigs/$ as you can.. there's quite a few out there that are nicely sized storagewise for the same price of a 1TB.

 

Lastly, this game seems to run a high processor load vs graphics card and I don't think thats just been my experience either.

I would be going for the 1060 6GB GTX card next month,I just don't have the funds for a complete build this month(having 5 kids gets EXPENSIVE lol)

I have done some research and it looks like the Ryzen 3 2200g paired with 2x8gb ram should handle WoW and movies better than my laptop does lol,this is great it means I can make do until next month when I buy a GTX 1060 6GB card.

I looked into the Ryzen 5 2400G but the Ryzen 3 2200G seems to be a great little overclocker.

I run the game with an old but trusty 750ti at 1080p with max settings and get over 60fps. Wows doesn't need much more unless your run higher resolutions. Lower power video cards always have fewer problems.

Get an SSD. Getting too cheap to ignore.

I prefer Intel because faster cores and fewer cores will always provide a better application experience, but the ryzens are just fine if you are on a budget.

Got a 250gb SSD in the tower already lol,pick up the rest of my parts tomorrow Ryzen 3 2200g,2x8gb 3000 DDR4,Asus B350M-A Prime motherboard,1TB HDD(I already have 4TB external HDD's),22" LED HD monitor.

The ram has already gone on sale(PC shops anniversary sale this weekend),hoping the rest goes on sale also lol.

The last PC I built was a pentium about 8 years ago,before that I always built AMD rigs.

My laptop always gave me pretty bad fps on high,had to lower a lot of the settings,plus it always ran way too hot for comfort.
