All items for the system are from TigerDirect.com I found that after comparing it with Newegg and Amazon, that it came out as the cheapest build, with the exact components on each site.
*GTX 470 1.2gb GPU
*6GB Corsair XMS3 Triple Channel 1600mHz RAM
*Corsair TX750W PSU
*HAF 922 Mid-Tower Case
*Western Digital 500GB HD (I really don't need more space tbh.)
*Asus 24x Internal DVD/CD RW Would like a different brand, actually, and if possible at a similar price
*Ci73 Keyboard I like the laptop-like keyboards
*Asus 24" HDMI Monitor Once again Asus isn't my favorite, but if there are any others that are similar in price and composition, that would be sweet!
And from Newegg for a cheaper price:
*Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
**I am also getting Arctic Silver 5 for my CPU heatsink.
The setup is pretty much primarily for gaming, mostly MMO-types (WoW, DDO, Diablo 3 if you can call it an MMO) and Starcraft 2.
Am I overspending for the type of computer it's going to be? I would like to be able to run pretty much any above mentioned program on the highest settings and still get nice framerates.
(Possibly a stupid question) I don't need a sound card or LAN card, right? They come with the motherboard?
Are there any immediate changes to be made given the information I've given? Like I said I'm not a fan of ASUS, so I could find something else, they are more for reference for now, but those are the only 2 that I have any concern about, aside from me overpaying.
**I would like this, or any fixes to make it cheaper, to also be future proof. I would like to be able to upgrade without problems so I'm not having to buy entire setups every couple of years.
