Additional Comments: Hello, recently i have found that i am in need of a new computer for world of warcraft. i have been using a laptop but i thought since the new expansion is coming out soon and i have a bit of money laying around i thought i should build one. As far as parts go i will list them below, i would also really appreciate if you could tell me if the cpu will bottleneck the gpu and if there are any compatibility issues. Also if you know how well this will play WoW that would be a big help too!

Parts i have chosen so far:
- i3 2120
- asrock h61 micro atx board
- zotac 560 se
- 500w psu 80 plus certified
- 8gb of ram @ 1600
- 500gb 7200 rpm hard drive
