Hey, got a list of parts I'm thinking about getting for a new build. I'm not the most knowledgeable so I just wanted to check with you all to make sure that all this stuff should work together. Any advice on better parts is welcome, I can't add much more to the price though.

Approximate Purchase Date: 1/9

Budget Range: <850 after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, mostly WoW

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, anything else not on my parts list

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg

Country: US

Parts Preferences: Probably stick with what I've got unless there's a problem. Intel cpu, Radeon graphics

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050

Skip the Rosewill PSU and get an Antec Earthwatts 500D. Looks good otherwise.
If you plan to do SLI/Xfire in the future, get a decent mobo and a stronger PSU.
