Currently the 7850 is out of stock at Newegg so I'm also looking at the 560 ti ..... any thoughts as to a comparable gpu? Or should I just wait for the 7850..... I need to order from Newegg.

Also any recommendations for the ram sticks? Kingston, corsair, crucial?

and or optical drive?


Thank you..... I'm looking for as painless and easy put together as possible. I don't know anything about computers and I don't wan't to be stuck on the forums for days trying to figure out how to get all individual pieces to work.

I don't wan't to have to over clock or play with or tweek anything I just want to put it all together initially and have it work.

All I'm going to be doing with this is gaming world of warcraft... I don't plan on playing anything else or doing anything else on it, no downloading, no video's no music, no graphic arts.

also any recommendations on a well priced 500g hd?

I think Ill go with the CORSAIR RAM ..... do you think that the 570 is good with the MB that I've selected?

Also do you like the MSI or EVGA

Also if you don't want to overclock your CPU you don't need aftermarket heatsink or the i5-3570K you could save money right there and get i5-3450

Ok then, If I'm just playing wow on high settings, I could just go with the i5-3450 standard out of the box, without the aftermarket heatsink and everything should stay cool.

Yes I don't want to overclock. I don't want to have to do anything but put this all together and play wow.

PS,

If you do get the 3450, you can *still* overclock 4bins (400mhz) so "3.9ghz". On ivybridge it's a a no-brainer oc and just involves changing the multipilier number to the higher setting. You won't need to mess with clock, voltages or ram or anything.

I don't think you'll have any issues with cooling, since Intel use the same stock cooler for the 3.9ghz chips they sell, but just watch your temps in case...

It is just a matter of intel put a stamp (and embedded some markers) on this chip saying it's a 3450, and a different stamp on a different chip saying it's a faster one.
