I am in the process of building my first computer myself and I wanted to get a few opinions before I commit to buying the parts.
ATM I am not interested in OC my rig. As far as SLI/Crossfire go I don't know much about it. I have read that WoW does not support it. The mobo I choose leaves the option open for both SLI and Crossfire. Really only looking to make a gaming rig for MMOs. here's what I have selected atm (All from newegg):

CPU Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80605I5760 (in a combo w/ Mobo) $367.99

OS Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM $99.99
All and all the cost comes to $1,063.43 (USD) w/ tax and shipping. I'd like to keep the cost around there. I'm pretty sure that all the components and compatible. Like I said before, I'm looking for opinions and advice before committing to the purchase of my new rig. I want something that I'll be able to run WoW and the newer games with good framerate and no lag. Thanks for any and all help/advice guys. It will be much appreciated, Cheers!
