Additional Comments: I would like a computer for my MMOs, which include Rift Primarily and Everquest 2. I would like a system that can run these games on high settings.
I am a first time builder and a little nervous about it, so with that In mind, I would like components that aren't too complex in regards to installation. In addition to the above mentioned games, I will need a computer that can multi-task well, as I use programs such as adobe illustrator, Indesign, and photoshop. Any help or advice would be great in accomplishing a solid, stable build for my needs!

Thank you.
