Hello Everyone,
I am attempting to piece together a computer for my son who plays WarCraft or "WOW" as he calls it. I have purchased a MSI 550 Ti 2048GB video card. Looking to puchase another, but.... Need to find what board (have heard "Gigabyte" is good) to put with it and to get 8GB of the 2400 memory. Also, I should ensure I get a 650 power supply. Does the "Case" matter? ANY and ALL Help would be much appreciated.
