    My rig:

    Lancool Dragon Lord K-58 Case (four 120mm internal fans in a pull-push configuration in sync with my cooler)
    Intel Core i7-2600K (Overclocked to 4.6Ghz)
    Corsair TX750W PSU
    Noctua NH-D14 Cooler
    Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 6970 2Gb
    Gigabyte Z68X-UD3P-B3 Motherboard
    8Gb Mushkin Redline Ridgeback DDR3-1600Mhz (7-8-7-24 timings as standard on this model instead of the usual 9-9-9-24, haven't attempted to OC and probably wont bother)
    1TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA III HDD
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic
    ASUS MW221U 22" Widescreen Monitor (2ms response time)

    Managed a 4.8Ghz overclock but it was starting to run a bit too hot for my liking and I didn't want to push my luck, plus it wasn't too stable and it seemed to want me to push my Vcore above 1.5v, which I didn't really want to risk doing :P

    More than handles WoW though, my framerate at the bank in Orgrimmar outside Garrosh's room never drops below 60fps at peak times, which is currently the lowest I've seen my framerate in World of Warcraft since upgrading. Quiet spots in caves or other places of the sort see my framerate jump to 400+ fps

    So far, the only two games that have come close to crippling my PC are The Witcher 2 with Ubersampling on, which currently no single GPU setup can handle properly, and Crysis 2 with the new Ultra patch with High Res textures. Both are playable with those settings, but barely. Dropping a couple of settings down and it's totally playable, and in the case of The Witcher 2, simply dropping Ubersampling off sends my framerate from the toilet to the ceiling.

    Other than that, my PC's yet to be tested properly. I'm even contemplating grabbing another 6970 or perhaps just a 6950 and going for a Crossfire setup, once I decide if I need it or not. This Z68 board is also capable of Intel's SRT, so I may grab an SSD at some point, but that really feels unnecessary at the moment.

    Bring on Skyrim!

    Wait for ivy bridge. There's no reason to cash up at the moment, as your i3-2100 is very fine. : P

    Since every1 pretty much knows much about setups.

    Little question

    I7-2600
    4gb memory
    Radeon HD 6870

    How would this run WoW on 1920x1080?

    You could drop down to the 2500(k) (i7 only has hyperthreading over the i5, which isn't worth it for gaming) and yes, it will run it

    Oh hell yeah Roller Coaster Tycoon... I wasted so much time playing that game back in high school... wonder if I still have the install disc laying around.

    I'm planning on consolidating my ISA and AD servers into one box (Linux host OS running VMWare with separate ISA, AD/DNS/DHCP, Exchange, and FS VM's), which would free up my old E8400 w/ 4GB DDR2. Since you mentioned that, I might have to setup an old WinXP box for classic stuff myself.

    I'm thinking a computer like Fuzzy's $500 budget build with Win7 32 bit would do the trick, right?

    Is it 700 bucks for just a CPU, memory, and video card?

    If so...

    2600K - $310
    6870 - $195
    4GB DDR3 - $40

    It's a ripoff.

    Some things refuse to install properly even on the awful 32bit version of Win7.

    1.6 GHz, I hope, and not 1.6MHz.

    Worth the price. At least if it's a new one.

    Here's my setup, I've usually got everything rather clean but it's after a small LAN party at my place..



    I truly dislike any neons and shit in my computer, but the case is open as my setup needs "slightly" more airflow than what it's got with case closed currently. Also waiting on new desk either way to put my setup on and probably getting a second 24" screen and faster ram to clock my CPU higher (I've got 2 E8400 so if one blows.. I'll put another in). :3

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~3600MHz
    Memory: 4096MB RAM
    Hard Drive: 660 GB Total
    Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB
    Monitor: Benq G2400WD
    Speakers/Headphones: Koss PortaPro
    Keyboard: Razer Arctosa
    Mouse: Logitech MX518
    Mouse Surface: SteelSeries
    Operating System: Windows 7 ROG (64 Bit)
    Motherboard: MSI P43 Neo-F

    Copypasta from my xfire profile.
