I'm rather ashamed to say I've never had the privilege of playing on quality machine, and recently I've decided to change that. My guild mates suggested unanimously that I build, even though I've never done it before. After some research and pricing of parts, I've decided I'm going to go ahead and do it.
I tried to make sure everything was compatible together, but as this is my first time it could benefit from a good looking over. I'm also not entirely sure of what else I need to order besides what is posted below that I'll need for assembly.
I want this computer to handle 25 man raiding at close to max/max settings. I also want it to do it while recording on Fraps and/or Streaming. My connection is 30 down / 8 up. I will be playing games like WoW, Diablo, and some FPS type games.
This is what I'm thinking so far. Please point out any problems, or changes that I should make, or anything I left out.
