    Thanks!
  2. Pretty close to the build I'm bout to put together this week. Only major diff will be the video card, I'll use a evga GeForce gtx 570. I'll let u know how it goes, mainly playing wow & swotor atm
  3. The only problem I have is the PSU. Coolmax not known for reliability.
  4. K everything up and running, swtor is the most demanding game I play ATM and I'm getting 80 fps on high settings and havnt over clocked yet. Same mobo and CPU u have listed, but using 8GB ram, GeForce 570 vid card, and a corsair 750w psu.
