New Gaming Rig (want opinions on what I have picked out)

Hey guys, so first off, I play World of Warcraft. I know thats not a really intense game for computer components, but I still want a nice rig. I play a little bit of FFS's. Heres what I have picked out for my new rig.



GFX card:

CD Rom:







Thats what I have picked out so far. I really don't want to spend more then $1150. I havn't decided on the case yet also. I might get the Haf932. Can anyone explain why the Haf932 kkn3 is more then the kkn1? Is it because of the LED colors?

  1. Forgot to mention, that I will be getting another 4870 in the future for crossfire.
  2. Please?
  3. I really want a 2nd opinion, before I order.
  4. Uhh, What do you mean another 4870? You have a 5770 selected. You should condiser going with a 4890 or a 4850x2 as opposed to the 5770.
  5. Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit

    Not sure, where you got the 5770 from
  6. Oh, well then don't buy the 4870 for that much. Just pay the 20$ more for a 4890.
  7. I think your case is overkill, 6 fans? If you do get this case, get a fan controller so that you will be able to hear your speakers over your mini jet engine :). Make sure the processor is compatible with the mobo.
  8. What resolution does your monitor run at? That's the #1 deciding factor when picking a GPU. I would say you're over-spending on the case and PSU. Here's a couple case/PSU combo deals to consider: $209.85 - $25 MIR (Antec 902 + Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W combo) $161.89 - $37 MIR's (Antec 300 + Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W combo)

    You picked a slow 5900RPM HD that's meant for a HTPC or strictly a storage drive. It shouldn't be used as your main drive. Here's a very fast 7200RPM drive that uses 500GB platters:
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive $94.99

    You said you wanted to do Crossfire, but the motherboard you picked runs its second PCI-E slot at 4x when in Crossfire. Here's a CPU/motherboard combo that will run the PCI-E slot at 8x when in Crossfire: $349.98 (i5 750 + Asus P7P55D PRO combo)

    I would get either a 5770 or 5850 depending on your monitor resolution.

    You should also ditch that IDE CD burner for a SATA DVD burner.

    LG Black 24X SATA DVD burner $25.99
