    umm, gives us more detailed specs, don't copy and paste it straight from the site.. How do we know what kind of GPU or PSU that is? That case is crap, and if the PSU comes with it, its a ticking time bomb waiting to blow up your computer, literally.

    The case will do just fine for about anything you put in it. I wold not recommend using the PSU that comes with it. Think about it, would you trust a PSU that costs $20 to run $1k worth of hardware?

    Ram-
    Manufacturer:CORSAIR
    Model #:CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B

    Brand doesn't matter too much, just pay attention to Newegg ratings. People on there are really good with advice. 4g will run just about anything you throw at it. I went with 8g for future proofing.

    The i52500k is a great CPU. Good choice.

    PSU-
    Manufacturer:comes with case
    Model #:
    Wattage:500W
    Link if possible: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371049

    Again, get one that doesn't come with the case. Linked my recommendation.

    Fantastic choice in GPU. A lot of people are running with the 560ti and having no issues.

    Motherboards are my weakness. I'll leave this one to someone more experienced,

    Not a bad choice in hardware at all. As the previous poster stated, check newegg often for hardware ratings, feedback and special discounts. I recommend signing up for the newsletter since it is very good in delivering discounts. I recommend getting a 650-700w PSU just to bullet proof the system. And personally, the new AMD 8core cpu is running for a nice price if you want to check that out. All in all you have a nice build here. NOTE: Instead of buying two HDD's, why not buy 1 and spend the money on a 32gb SSD that is on sale right now on newegg . Now i know this size is small, but it can improve your WoW loading time by a TON. As a Toms Hardware article proved, WoW demands a ton of attention off your HDD. While a 7200rpm drive is nice, an SSD drive is way better. Also, there is a sale for 16gb of kingston memory for 79.99 . Happy holidays.
