This is the build I want to do. I plan on running windows 7. I already own the SSD and HDD. I also already own the RAM. I would like to leave those three unchanged if possible. Budget ya know? I went with the AMD processor because for the price it seems to benchmark better than the i5's that I could afford. My two questions are:

1. Do the parts I've chosen seem to be compatible?

2. Will this be suitable for playing World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls Online that is being released this April?

Kingston sh103s3/90g SSD (for a boot drive)

Hitachi HDS721050CLA 500 GB HHD

Kingston HyperX 8 GB (4x2) KHX1600C9D3K2/8gx 1.65v

EVGA GeForce GTX760 SuperClocked 2GB

CoolerMaster hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA

AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8 Core Black Edition

Corsair CX 600 Watt 80 Plus

CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer Mid Tower Case

Have you already buy the parts ? With that build, you will be able to play World of Warcraft and Elder Scrolls Online smoothly.

- Why a Hyper 212 Plus ? There is the Hyper 212 EVO avaible already and it performs better.

- Corsair CX power supplies are cheap. Instead, go with a better quality power supply from a trusted brand like Seasonic or XFX. Anything from these two brand will perform way better.

- The case is all matter of preference, but there are better quality enclosures for the same price. Take a look at Corsair and Fractal Design cases.

Have fun building !

I have not bought any parts yet other than the HDD, SSD, and RAM, which I already own in my older Alienware.

I just couldn't figure out the difference in the EVO or the Plus, plus was 10 dollars cheaper and had good reviews on amazon.

I'll look into some of the other power supplies. I think that I would rather have one that was fully modular, but the price was good on the corsair and it had the 80 bronze rating

I just like the way the case looks, and the fact that it comes with a large front fan. I'll check out some of the other cases. You said that Corsair power supplies were cheap, their cases are good??
