Any Additional Info Here:
To make sure it was said -- I was/am intending to make the most recent unicorn system, but I dont understand the difference (to me) between the unicorn case and Narwhal case -- considering the large price difference.
I DO know I want the SSD for loading speed. but again, whats the dif between the 250$ intel and the 120$ one?
is 8 gigs of ram enough? I would almost prefer to buy 12 gigs and be semi done with it for a good while.
If it matters, I know nothing of how SLI helps or hinders World of Warcraft -- I bought my current comp with 2x GTS 250s in SLI, and found out that it made wow play WORSE, so ended up disabling the SLI.. and eventually I upgraded to a.. GTX 370? or something along those lines (no sli currently)
- Expense wise, I think I would prefer to just buy 1 video card, but if a good argument could be made, I might be swayed.
And lastly, should I only consider amazon links? or will Newegg have better/Lower prices?
- Is it worth calling my local Fry's Electronics (california) and seeing if they have any of these parts/prices?
- for the windows OS, should I go OEM, or for.. 2x? the price, get a normal .. 3? license version? Why?
edit: should I have posted this in the http://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/3...ter-Build-Help section?
