Additional Comments:

Here is what I currently put together using pcpartpicker. Again WoW is what I play majority of the time with D3, and possible photo editing in the the future. I download a lot of crap, watch movies on it yada yada yada. I want an SSD for boot drive and to put WoW and a couple other programs on it. Not gonna go SLI so 750W should be the max PSU needed to power the 660 Ti.

  1. no advice from anyone yet?
  2. Hey man, sorry for lack of response as of yet, with worldwide members it sometimes takes a while :)
    Build looks fine if a little ott for WoW :)
    maybe up the card to a 670 if you stretch the budget?
    monitors fine too, I play at the same res so unless you felt the need to go x3 on the screens don't worry :)
  3. Thanks moto been awhile since Ive seen you but then again Im not on like I was last year.

    I thought the 660 Ti would already be OP for WoW

    Im debating on a 128GB SSD but I think it would be way too much for me

    Going to go to a Micro Center store to get a couple of the items for the great discounts
  4. We all have lifestuff outide the Pc room hehe, some things are more demanding than others though :)
    the 660 will be sufficient but I was thinking of longevity, and the Ssd won't help WoW, just boot up and load WoW faster, I don't have an Ssd yet and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything
  5. Yeah I know I just hate slow loading times but I have thought about not getting it as well its not like its going to kill me but also having windows load almost instantly is more then worth it
  6. Sleep mode helps with that :-)
    Desktop in about four seconds
  7. Got a friend of mine to grab the CPU and Mobo from Micro Center then next weekend I can start ordering the rest and building it
  8. All good, shout up if you have anything else to ask :-)
