I Play WOW and was wondering if this'll be adequate to play on top setting and still have a great frame rate? And just wanted to be sure that all the components will be compatible. So does this look like a good gaming build? Any advice on what I might be looking for for a good gaming build would be much appreciated. Thanks!

this will max out WoW no problems, with great frame rates.

-you chose a full tower, I am not sure if they power supply cables will be long enough to reach everywhere, especially the CPU 8 pin power connector.

-why not grab a dvd burner? rom and burners are very close in price.

-without knowing your budget, can't really make any suggestions. all i can say is all the parts are compatible.

-again, it looks great for an AMD gaming build.

Awesome! Thanks man! I'll grab a burner instead. I Like the case for any future expansion or mods. So I'll have to get some extensions for the cables. Thanks again!

The tx should reach no problem. The Phantoms big, but not as big as corsairs case.

You got a serious WoW system.. x6 is overkill for just wow but, you are there to kill.

Depending on the price of the card, and it's overclock, a 6850 would be a good option too.

Thank you Sir! Overkill is just what I want! I'll be sure and check the 6850 out. Thanks!

I would go with 1600 RAM instead of 1333 myself.

I just helped my cousin's husband build a beast of a WoW rig. I don't know how well WoW utilizes multiple cores, but if it does decently you will be set with that x6.

Everything looks great, but I would go for Sandy Bridge. It's far better than Thuban for gaming in pretty much every way.
