Spend the extra $5 and grab this:

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850

Granted WoW seems to run better on Nvidea cards, but since the 7850 is a stronger card, it will more than make up for the differences. The 7850 can also overclock to 7870 levels which are on par with the 570 in performance.

Other than that the build looks solid with the addition of a CPU Cooler. I have this one and it works fantastic in keeping my 2500K cool @ 4.1ghz

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

I don't' think i would go with the 7850... per this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-revi... it tends to crash repeatedly when trying to play WoW.

I have the Extreme 4. No complaints here! ;)

i guess i will go for the 560 ti, since 480 is quite expensive in DK.. :( , how come ext3 is the better one?
April 25, 2012 8:08:36 PM

Where were you able to get the Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel structure for 48% off? I"m building almost the exact same system as you. Only difference is I'm going with the 7850 GPU and an SSD for the OS/games. And will be mainly for D3.
