Hello, I will be getting my gaming build in about 3 weeks and i just wanted to see if everything is going to work together.

XFX ATI Radeon 6870 1GB GDDR5 -

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2Ghz -

Xigmatek Midgard Pure Black Edition -

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 AMD 970A (Socket AM3+) -

Corsair 600W Builder Series -

4GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3 (2x2) -

1TB Samsung Hardrive -

Liteon Disc Drive -

I have a few more questions;

1) Will this build be powerful enough to run games like; World of Warcraft, Empire total war and Counter Strike:source all on max/high settings?
2) Will everything fit in the case?
3) Will i be able to keep my system cool with the two 120mm fans pre-installed? p.s i won't be overclocking.
Thanks, Calvin.

1) Yes, as long as it's only those games and not newer CoD and BF series (etc) games.
2)The Video card should fit
3) Definitely, the 2 120mm will be enough
If I may ask, what is your budget?

Hm, i won't be able to do that build cause i need to get windows 7 but thanks for the help. Do you think that i will be ok with the build i listed for the following games...

Total war series
Cod4 (NOT any other of the series)
Counter strike source

Will i be able to run them with good fps? (If i have to lower graphics i will)
