Okay, I'm trying to build a computer to play Warhammer and maybe LOTRO, and I've compiled a list of parts from Newegg.com. What do you guys think? Would this system be enough to run Warhammer and LOTRO on full settings, or should I upgrade a bit?

Let me know what you think, a friend of mine says it should work just fine, but I'd rather have more than just one opinion before I spend the $700.

Would it be possible to list the stuff you want to buy here? Or you can post a screenshot. I think your wish list is only accessible to your account.

The 250 is just a rebadged 9800+ http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/geforce-gts-250,review-31...
Personally I would go for a 4850 or a 4870.
I played LOTRO a lot and WAR and with my 4870 everything was turned on shiny shiny. And LOTRO is stunningly pretty in dx10 with full settings. Have you looked at one of the triple core athlons, apparently you can unlock the 4th core with some...
