I am almost 100% everything is compatible and been doing research for about 2 weeks now. I am really just unsure how much performance i will get out of this. I am not a HARDCORE gamer but do play a lot of WoW and raid a lot and my old computer crashes and lags because of the old CPU.
All input suggestions and comments welcome! (sorry for a sloppy post)
