Hey whats going on. I just finished putting together my first build, should be able to buy it in a couple of weeks. I just wanted to make sure if everything goes together before I purchase anything.

The build is mainly for playing WoW and watching videos. I'm not the greatest with this kind of stuff, so I was wondering if someone could tell me if its good to go.

Thanks!

You can get a GTX 460 for the same price as that GTX 260, its much faster for the same price

Swap the Caviar Green for the F3, its much faster for the same price

Rosewill PSUs are iffy, some are good some are crap. The corsair 750TX is a high quality unit that is known to be good and is more powerful than that rosewill even though they claim the same wattage

Rather than an older LGA 775 build you can get equal or better performance(depending on the game) with an AM3 build which will give you processor upgrade options in the future. Swap the case for an antec 900 and combo with a nice asus motherboard

Then grab an Athlon II X4 and you have yourself a good setup with upgrade options for slightly less than the intel build would be
