Hi guys! I am building a gaming computer for the first time. If all goes well I will build my wife one as well. We mostly play WoW. I have put together a list of parts I need you guys to tell me if they will work good with each other. PLEASE tell me if I'm missing something or if I need to change something. Be brutally honest!
CASE- RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case
-1.The case you picked, is not so good. I am not really a fan of the fact that the PSU comes on top. It is hotter up there and less stable then on the bottem. Instead get this case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
-2.Get the AMD X4 955, The 965 is just an over-clocked 955.
-3.Get an 8 series chip, the 870 chipset is cheap and will do the job.
-4. Optical drive, i my opinion just get the cheapest DVD drive out there from Samsung. No uses those things anymore anyway.
