Default First Computer Build - Need help/advice

I had to switch over to TigerDirect because NewEgg taxes my state, and Im nowhere near the will call center.


Ive done some research and this is what Ive come up with so far. Does it all Work together?

Case - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=C283-3122

Screen - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=A179-2303
(May downgrade for a cheaper monitor)

Mother Board -http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131736

Processor -http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103996

Power Supply - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...8&sku=C13-2812 (Changed to a 500W to save money)


Keyboard - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16823201039

Mouse - Have one already

Memory - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...4&sku=C13-8220


DVD Burner - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...u=L12-1312 OEM

Video Card - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=P450-6859 (To Save Money)

Windows 7 Bought

Bought an Anti Static wrist device for build.





Toolkit - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16899261002

Am I Missing ANYTHING that a computer may need to run games like Star wars the old republic and world of warcraft?

Thank you all again for the help!

Never ever, ever, ever, skimp on your PSU. It could easily damage all your components. Get a reputable brand, Antec, OCZ, Corsair.

Get this RAM: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL
cheaper, better, imho.

Get like a ATI 6870 for the GFX. I'm not well versed in this, though.

Get any DVD burner, they're all around the same price. Newegg.com - LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - CD / DVD Burners
All games install from a DVD, unless you can download it. Everyone has a DVD Burner.

You don't need a small or specific screwdriver. Get this: Newegg.com - Rosewill RTK-015 15 Piece Standard Computer Tool Kit

a dvd burner is a optical drive so like the LITE-ON one mindovermaster linked would be fine

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161384 is a good video card for $150 but id pick a PSU with more then 500watts id get at somthing like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151096

ALso, I added a different case with an air filter

yup compatible as for dust/air filters you dont NEED them but there helpful. without them you just clean your pc out alittle more but if you want them you can look at a case like Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

EDIT: im acomplete noob when it comes to ram compatible i myself just go off the motherboards website ram list http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD...OTH_990FX/#MSL

Both your Ram and Cpu, are completely compatible with your motherboard.

The processor you've chosen is kinda mehh, performance wise, the price and added gift card from newegg is hard to beat though.
