I'm trying to build a good gaming rig on a budget of $800-900 dollars. I have gathered as much information as I can from reading just about a million threads on 100 different forums. This is what I have on my list so far:
Other stuff aren't that important. Maybe a CPU cooler and thermal compound stuff.
Now my real question is this. I'm going to constantly upgrade this desktop, even when I get out of college (I'm starting college soon), and just keep it as long as I can. Right now, the most heavy gaming I'll do is WoW or Orange Box games, and when Diablo III and StarCraft 2 comes out, I'm definitely playing those. So, I'm wondering whether I should start out with such premium parts or I should just buy some inferior parts for now, and upgrade later when needed? The only thing on this list that I really, really want is the Quad Core processor because I multitask like crazy. I tried to find the best bang-for-buck parts for each component of the desktop, but it still adds up to like $870, which is within my budget, but I have to consider taxes and other other accessories such as keyboard, mouse, sound card, OS, etc.
Can you folks please criticize my chosen parts and give me advice on whether I should keep it low now, just enough to play WoW, and upgrade later, or just stay with this build and be safe in the future? Thanks in advance for all the help!
