  1. There is no reason to buy an H61 mobo for $105 and if you're using a mid tower case go with an ATX board.

    (Missed the updated list)

    Go with 1600mhz memory

    If you can afford to go a little over your budget go with the i5-2500. The quad core will help with gaming.

    @384-BiT your link doesn't work
  2. So do you guys think I should go with the AMD build that I currently have set up or go with 384 -BiT's set up he has in that image minus the PSU and changing out the memory for the one danraies posted?
  3. Everything looks good. If it were me I would go with a Z68 mobo and 560ti instead of H61 and 570. It's mostly personal preference since you're not overclocking, but H61 is pretty outdated and that microATX board really limits your expandability.
  4. Looks good to me.
  5. I would gow ith your AMD setup over the Intel setup suggested.

    Why?
  7. AMD setups are nearly always cheaper then Intel setups.

    I think I'm going with this set up.

    Anyone have any clue as to what my fps will be in WoW on max settings in a raid environment?
