What Do You Think?

Okay, So im building my first personal gaming rig.
I'm on a tight budget and looking to up my World of Warcraft graphics and overall performance. Ive picked all these things out and being my first time im not too sure if they will all work well together. Any opinions will be appreciated.
And just to settle the issue now, I know the whole AMD vs. Intel and have done much research on the pros and cons.
My main concern here is that the mobo wont fit in the case along with the height of the GPU and the RAM sticks as well as the size of the PSU.
Also that the PSU has enough molex connectors for the GPU because with the adapters the GPU comes with it seems like its going to be taking up 4 Molex connectors. Is this right?

Here's What I'm Lookin At:


How well do you guys think this will run World of Warcraft? I have Mist of Pandaria as well.

Thank you all again in advanced! :hello: 

My want is to be able to Run WOW without lag on Ultra. If what I have is too much is there a cheaper alternative to these parts?

I think you should have listed the names of the components so I didnt have to click all your links to help you

Your power supply has two pci-e power connectors and this is what your graphics card needs . Not moles which would require an adapter .

The graphics card is a generation old and you can get better performance at the same price using a Radeon 7850

You could improve the whole systems gaming performance by using an FX 6300 processor and fitting a Radeon 7870 graphics card

Thank you for your reply.
Since the the Radeon 7850/7870 is a PCI Express 3.0 and the Mobo only has a PCI express 2.0 wouldn't that cause an issue?

None at all

pci-e 3.0 doubles the bandwidth to the graphics card but graphics card dont use all of the bandwidth of thee 2.0 standard anyway so it makes no noticeable difference .
It might in two years time , but not right now
