Looking for Comments or Advice on Possible Build

I like to start of by saying this will be my first build so if someone could verify that everything is compatible it would be much appreciated. I am wanting to build a PC that would be capable of playing Guild Wars 2 on a descent setting using my t.v. as a monitor without jeopardizing the frame rate.

Optical Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136250

Any comments or suggestions would be great. Also any thoughts on Windows 7 or Windows 8?

  1. Decent build. Nice job!

    Windows 7 should be your OS, stable for gaming. Windows 8 might have some bugs on it.

    At this budget you really need to drop the SSD and get a better processor.


    Guild wars 2 is VERY poorly coded, it is cpu hungry.

    At lower resolutions it is doubly important.


    With the money saved from the ssd get a 3570k.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely will go with the better processor. I might keep the SSD though, I would like to keep my OS and maybe GW2 on the SSD and anything else on the HDD. Any advice, is it worth it or would I be wasting my money?
  4. If you get the i3, get one of the Ivy Bridge ones (32xx) as opposed to the Sandy (31xx).

    All looks good though.
