So what I have so far is below. I still need a motherboard, power supply, a sound card if it's not included on the motherboard and a graphics card. I run WoW, Starcraft 2, Guild Wars 2, League of Legends and Diablo 3. May be playing the new oblivion MMO soon I haven't decided. I really want a great cost-effective graphics card... I was looking at the 750 TI, is that any good here's the link to it http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Really am lost on what motherboard to go with. Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you are not planing to do some heavy overclocking, get Asus M5A97 R. 2.0 or Gigabyte GA 970A D3P.
About PSU, get something like XFX 550w it is 59$ on newegg i believe.
You will not need sound card, it is included in the motherboard.
The 750Ti is pretty good card for the price

XFX 550w is enough to power all of that? I was thinking about getting more like a 1000w. This one specifically http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

And this is for a future build. I will build this one and let my girlfriend use my current decent setup because her laptop keeps getting so hot and running sluggish. I've replaced the thermal compound on it like 5 times since shes had it and it just eats it away.

Is there a way to list my full build from tigerdirect so you can look at it? I have it all in my shopping cart. 798.04 is the total without a monitor right now. And no I don't need an OS, I have a windows 7 copy I can use.
