Gaming Rig - New build

Hello,
Looking for some input for my first build. Do I have everything I need? Things to remove or better options?
I plan to play World of Warcraft and general PC applications. I connect via a wireless connection.

I would like to spend between 1-1.2k. I will be purchasing a 32" 1080p LCD HD tv for a monitor with HDMI connection. Thanks for your help.

  1. Get the AMD Phenom II X4 955 if you plan to OC.

    You do realise you have 2 mobo's listed right?

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231275&cm_re=g.skill_ddr3_1333-_-20-231-275-_-Product better memory for AMD. It does more with lower latencies (CAS 8) than higher frequencies.

    I don't use Cooler Master PSU's.. Seasonic, Corsair, or XFX.
    Corsair 750TX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006 (I realise it cost more.. you get more Watts, plus it's from a good PSU company.)
  2. Thank you Vindictive for your reply.

    Does this look good?

    Any other items might I need to start it up?

  3. whats "Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply" ? you don't need a case that comes with a PSU, + 500W isn't enough for two 6870's.
    Stick with the haf 912
  4. Thank you, I'll stick with your stated picks.

    I appreciate your input.

    I'll let you know how it all works out.

    for older guys like me if i want a deal i have to BIOS activate mine... :ange:


    The only thing I'm unsure of is that it says "upgrade" and then lists some windows OS you must have. Since its for a new build would that be considered an upgrade? My netbook is running XP but obviously my new system comes with no software.
    I e-mail microsoft and asked anyway but maybe you know xD
