Could you post the names of the computer components you're thinking of getting, so we don't have to click on like 12 different links to see? :) 

Also, if you (or a family member) has a .edu e-mail address, you can get Windows 7 Pro for only $65, here: http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/windows/buynow/d...

Just want to say grab this shell shocker RAM right now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

as for a decent SSD the agility 2 is hard to beat at that price

That's a great deal on that RAM...but these 1155 mobo's tend to like lower voltage RAM....like 1.5v.

I don't play WOW so I don't really no ze best and stuff but I can say that the lycosa seems to have a lot of problems it would be a better idea to go with a more reliable logitech.

G11? I don't know I don't play WoW but if it is anything like SC2 with a lot of quick keys (crazy asian SC2 players) then the Logitech G15's or whatever would be fine. Pretty cheap now a days.

As long as you don't get a DOA it's fine and since this guys got 100% feedback and it's a keyboard he's tested I wouldn't be scared.
