I just put this together on newegg and was wondering if there was anything that would be better in place of any of the other parts or if there was any advice about it . I really only play wow on pc so thats why i went with the 560ti everyone says its better for wow . My limit is 1000$ shipped so im right at budget as it is but any advice would be apreciated. Thanks in advance.

Looks pretty good overall. Any particular for the low power "S" i5? It's not quite as fast as the standard, especially with highly threaded loads.

Yeah i just accidently clicked on the wrong one im glad you said something i fixed it and picked this one and i changed the full tower to this mid tower also . Although i am not sure if it will all fit in the mid case . Any thoughts on that or should i stick with a full tower?

Yes it should fit in either case, I would get a mid tower. Also, just pointing out that you don't really need the Hyper because the i5-2400 is not overclockable.

Edit: Disregard that last comment, I see you switched to a K processor.

That first list is kind of hard to read over, but from what I discerned it looks good. That combo is fine if that's all the parts it includes - some aren't the best bargains i.e. $230 mobo, but if the overall price is lower it's not bad. Also, do you need a PSU - I don't see any in the lists?

Should i get the ddr3 1600 instead of the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL
for oc purposes?

Either will be fine, memory shouldn't be much of an issue - if they're within $5 or so, I would get the 1600MHz, otherwise it's not worthwhile IMO.

Yeah there was one in there but i had a combo and when i switched the processor it erased it too lol . Here is the final unless i should get the other ram.
