SLI or Crossfire: No, but would like to be able to in the future.
Monitor Resolution: Alienware AW2210 - 1920x1080
Additional Comments: I currently game on a M11X C2D with a Samsung 830 SSD. Not sure if this desktop build needs a SSD or not, but it sure helped on my M11X. WoW is the main game that I play, but on occasion I play SC2. I would like to try SWTOR and Diablo 3 when it comes out. This PC has to have Wireless N, I am not running wires through my house I do game now with the N card in the M11X and I have zero issues.
This is the build I have picked, but 1500 seems a bit much for my goals and would like some help trimming it down. The SSD may be kinda unnecessary at this point. I do think that the Z68 is a good so in the future I could upgrade to a next gen processor. Unless at that point you might as well build new then I dont care if I am on a cheaper chipset. And then the 2GB card - is 2Gb really necessary? Same thing with Retail Win 7 - the copy of Win 7 will always be for this machine, but if the MoBo goes out 2yrs from now and I get a comparable replacement - if I all I have to is call the number and get the activation number then I will go with the OEM version.
Sorry for the long post - I just want to make sure I am picking decent components for my goals!
What I already picked out (but am extremely unsure of - except the case):
I appreciate the input - to make more room in the budget should I replace the SSD with a 32MB/7200rpm 1TB drive for now?
All what you wanna do man! I don't think the price difference would be big, considering the inflated hard drive market. You could always get the SSD now and add the HDD for large file storage later. 500GB drives are going for around $85, keep that in mind.
