Well my pc started blue screening out of control and I had to bring it into a shop so I decided to upgrade it and use the old components for a backup. Am looking for advice on new components. PC’s will be used for long hours of MMO gaming. Stability is the most important, don’t want the newest stuff on the market just solid reliable and good performance. MOBO that has a solid BIOS no NB issues, RAM that runs at advertised speeds etc.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week
BUDGET RANGE: $2,000

OVERCLOCKING: NO
