Great input, I appreciate all the responses! I'm glad I have no bias towards nvidia/ati because the suggestions lead me to research the GTX 260 that I was planning to upgrade to in the future, which apparently people are having a problem with in WoW. I made changes to the following:
- ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Mobo
- ASUS EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported
- ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler
I'll probably switch the video card up to a 4870 in the future, and the Corsair 750TX PSU should handle crossfire between two 4870s, or so ATI CrossFireX Certified Components
suggests. I considered tweaking some products up to try to get a quad core to build a more "future-proof" comp, but I was curious as to how some of you guys feel. Better to stick with dual core while it's performing well with current gaming and make a switch to quad core when prices change/a better product comes out/more games utilize it? Or run with a quad core now and overclock it to close the margin a bit (assuming dual core is OC'd too)? Looking forward to more feedback, thanks.
