Please review and critique this combination. Thanks in advance.


*edit for afterthought... i dont think the cpu/mobo combo i selected comes with a cooling fan,...and i'm drained after hours of "Newegging"...so if anyone has any suggestions on a good cooling unit i'd love to hear it and see a link. thanks again. And i changed my mind from ATI to Nvidia after reading all of the driver issues.

Id probably spend a little less on the GPU and a little more on the CPU. The CPU plays a much larger role with FPS in 25 man raids than the GPU. A RL friend of mine is running 40+ FPS in 25 mans on an i5/5670. Although, if youre going to be playing at higher resolutions then id definitely go with the 5770.
