Hey everyone. This is going to be my first computer build. I'm replacing my computer that's about 5 years old, so nothing is really reusable. I pretty much saw a build on another post that I believe would do the job, but I'm not sure if it is overkill or not enough.
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Games / Settings Desired: I usually just play WoW, SC2, and Diablo 3. Ideally I would like to play all on max settings.
Any other intensive software or special things you do: Nope
Country: USA - I'm near a Microcenter if that can factor into getting parts cheaper
Parts that can be reused: None
Do you need an OS?: Yes - Are students able to get copies of Windows 7 for less than retail? I have a friend who is still in college.
Do you need peripherals? I would welcome keyboard and speaker suggestions
It's my first time posting, so I can't give a link to the build. Here are the parts that I plan on using. Thanks in advance for any advice!
