Ok. Im looking to upgrade my current system and just need some suggestions to fine tune my purchases. Looking to buy the components before the end of the year.
Trying to stay around $600 - $700
Mainly a gaming pc. Mostly for world of warcraft cataclysm. I do raid alot and want to use the new ultra settings if possible and possibly fraps our raids while still getting good fps!
I have the following components i would like to re-use :
Antec twelve hundred case
Rosewill 850 extreme PSU
Tuniq 120 HSF
Samsung 1 TB hard drive
Windows 7 64 bit
I would like to purchase from Newegg, tigerdirect or etc.
I may want to overclock. (For performance gains)
Not really wanting to do SLI / CF, HOWEVER i do have a 9800 GTX card that i do want to do PhysX with.
So far I think i want to go with an i5 760 cpu. I really like the evga P55 ftw motherboard but newegg is out of them. =( a gtx 460 but not sure which? And then 4 gb. Of ram. But should i do 1600 mhz. Ram or ???
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

not gonna do 70+ on a $700 system. from what I gave you, you can add $90 for an i5-760 (about the same as the i7-875 on the charts), and another $180 to get a second GTX 460, or a bit less to get a GTX 570
well when I click on the link from Satchel for that mboard and cpu combo via Newegg it doesn't say recertified but when I click on the motherboard link once the NewEgg combo deal link comes up on NewEggs site then it shows the mboard as being recertified.
