Thanks in advance for your help. This community has been extremely helpful in doing research for my first build. There is so much information, however, that I have to admit I'm a bit overwhelmed. I'd appreciate any feedback people have. Right now I'm mainly planning to play WoW on this machine. I know the graphics are a bit overkill, but I like running 4-5 instances at a time and my current machine has started overheating running a single window in the new Cataclysm zones. I'd love to actually move my visual settings off of the lowest settings finally. I also have seen that most people prefer the Samsung HDDs, but those seem to be out of stock on newegg atm. Should I order from somewhere else or just grab a WD one?
