New gaming rig

I'm getting myself a new system in September preparing for the new games i'll be playing; Diablo 3, WoW: Cataclysm, and Star Wars:The Old republic. Right now I just play Aion. Anyway I was wondering how this build looks. Before everyone says it yes I know that it would be easier/cheaper to build my own but i'll be doing that next time around.

  1. You have a upgrade thread going and this? Which do you plan to do?

    Read this and see if you're willing to move up your plans of building now.

    As for this system, if you're going to OC, just get the 955 instead. The performance difference won't be noticeable.

    Not knowing the model of HDD makes it a little difficult to know how to compare them. Here's a great summary of current mechanical drives:
  2. I'm selling the upgrade system to a friend i'm just looking into his upgrade options for him since he's not as computer/tech savvy as I am. So i'm helping him out with that. And during september I am buying myself a new computer to replace this one. :] I won't be overclocking i'm not comfortable with it and the gain would be minimal.
  3. I read the build your own guide and like I said before i'm not comfortable with it. Building a PC will be something i'll do on the side as a hobby/project. :] But thanks for those links they were very informative.
  4. So any other opinions on how this looks, anyone?
