Extreme Gaming Rig ($1200 Budget)

Hey guys just found this forum and love it! I have found lots of great info here and feel ready to get another build on the way. My first build was roughly 5 years ago. Just recentley that same computer finally took the plunge. What I want to do is build from the ground up once again and build another epic gaming machine. After my first build was complete, I kind of dwindled of the tech map. I am not up to par as far as the extreme gaming products available to us. So I ask you guys to make up a computer w/ a $1200 budget. I occasionally play FPS games, but am a MMO (WoW) player at heart. I raid 25mans in a top us guild so FPS drops cannot happen. My monitor i'm using is a Sharp Aquos 32" 1080p HDTV using the TV's Vyper HDMI technology. Any other info you guys need from me I will be willing to assist!!! Thank you so much in advance and cant wait to get this going!

  1. ok heres it goes:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229204

    made by cyberpower and comes with a warranty , should do the trick for u :)

    only 99$ more but id say its worth it
  2. You should wait 1month for SB.

    Check out my build in my siggy. Either the 1000 or the 1200.
  3. If you don't need an o/s (Windows) just subtract it from this build. These 1155 P67 boards are due to be on the shelves in the next 3-4 weeks. There are some benchmarks / reviews of these Sandy Bridge cpu's down towards the bottom of this post.

    This build is set up to add another one of those factory o/c gtx 560's in SLI if you so choose. This includes Windows 7, after market h/s, etc...
