My Birthday is coming up soon and i'm planning on getting a new computer.
I wanna be able to play World of warcraft on Ultra and Record via Fraps.
Also might do a little 3D Modeling. I just need your opinion on the spec so ill
able to do these things.
Looks great except rather than buying 2x2Gb(x2) you should go with 2x4Gb it will be slightly faster. Instead of a Geforce card you should get a Radeon HD 6950 for the same price so that if you ever want to go Crossfire it will be fine, and the 6950 ranks higher than the 470 on the hierarchy chart.
Quick question, what resolution do you plan on playing this at, if your only going to run wow at 1280x1024 then a 570-6970 will pump plenty out. I dont like to recommend specific cards but price for performance the game seems to run slightly better on nvidia cards. I recommend you get the 570 and reduce your ssd to a 60 gig model and get a standard hdd for normal storage. Much better performance scenario.
WoW seems to show a pretty strong preference for nVidia cards, but Martin9630 has a point about Crossfire. If you think you'll ever want two GPUs, then get an AMD card like a HD6870. In your place, and preferring just one card, I'd probably choose a GTX560 Ti.
Also, the X6 CPUs show no advantages for games, and sometimes worse performance than the X4s. Check out the 965BE instead.
Another option entirely, which would give you better performance overall, plus the SLI (as well as Crossfire) option, would be to consider a Sandy Bridge build. What is your budget?
You could get RAM with higher latency to save money, but I hear modeling applications like lower latency RAM.
You could step the GTX 570 down to the GTX 560 Ti and still get performance better than a 470. Also, the Intel platform will support Crossfire or SLI, so if you choose to get a 6970, you can still upgrade to a dual-card configuration in the future.
If you don't plan to SLI/Crossfire, drop the PSU to XFX Black Edition 650 Watt.
My Budget is $2,200
for WoW i plan on playing it by 1920 x 1080 and having the other monitor for browsing the web.
if intel is the way to go ill happily switch. i wanna keep the 2 monitors and the case tho.
