I made this build on Cyberpower.com and im kind of a novice in computer technics but i know my way around them for the most part just not into detail. Anyway i made this build for specifically World of Warcraft (i might play other mmorpgs like Aion or Star Wars though and maybe some skyrim and stuff like that but not a lot of shooters on pc or anything like that maybe halo) and id like to know if it would be good for the game on max settings with a decent FPS (preferably above 40.. im used to about 5-10 on my laptop .. lol) please let me know if there are any bottlenecking issues, any bad ideas, anything bad really and i might overclock it in the future (if i even can with the build) so please tell me any issues i might have with that and thank you all for the help and time to reply in advance! any criticism and opinions are open anyway here it is thanks all again for the help!

Well, you know that by coming to this forum we are going to recommend you to buy the individual parts and build your computer, since it comes out much, much cheaper.

Anyway, the graphics card that you picked is good, but not top notch. Go with the GTX 670 for real performance for a good price. Also, I think you added too many bells and whistles, stuff that isn't really needed, but you can get if you insist on it.

This is what I would get in your situation:

How much was the build on CP? i highly doubt it was "much much cheaper" or cheaper at all since CP buys their components at supplier prices. but its obviously better to build yourself if you have the means.

Get the i5-3570k processor, it' newer, supports PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.0. The i5-2500k overclocks better than the i5-3570k, but the 3570k is faster at stock speeds. The 2500k will only surpass the 3570k at really high overclocks.

I just picked the ASRock Motherboard because it's a great motherboard for a lower price, but if you really want the Sabertooth then go ahead. There are definitely no bottlenecking issues.

I don't think you should skimp on the GTX 670, even if youhave to drop other parts to keep it. It's by far the most important part of your build. The GTX 670 is miles ahead of the GTX 570. The 570 is basically only a little bit better than the 6950 that you picked originally.

And don't buy all those peripherals on CP. go on newegg or amazon to get the speakers, mouse, monitor...etc. newegg runs promos weekly on that monitor.

And you don't need that Hard drive cooler. lose it.

Go with air cooling. water cooling is a fad. Thermaltake FRIO or EVO 212.

so basically what is usb 3.0 and pcie 3.0's advantages? and the 3570k's overclocking abilities? and i like the motherboard i did some research im keeping that and i dont necisarrily need super high end graphics card because like i said im used to wow and all the lowest settings at about 10 fps max so anything better really with high settings would be amazing to me this is my first build and i dont really wanna go to all out with it

i keep reading up on 3570k's and im seeing they have crappy internal soldering and high high temps and are bad for overclocking would that be an issue with it if i got it with my current setup then? im air cooling the cpu now with the tuniq tower 120 extreme 90.7 CFM fluid dynamic bearing

BTW im also making it a EVGA GeForce GTX 570 2.5GB Video Card versus the 1.25GB one so doesnt that help? and how is my power supply situation? is is sufficient enough to handle a major/heavy overclock with the current setup and then some because i dont wanna come up short on that http://pcpartpicker.com/p/aMZx that is the current build ive fine tuned it to what advice you have given and my personal preferences and i do want to stay with that case
