Hey, I am kinda switching to PC gaming after playing consoles for a while. This place seems full of awesome people, so I'll need your brainpower! Basically everything I have so far is almost $1500 ( I didnt list my Hard drive and some stuff). I would like to keep it under 1500.
THis is a link to my wishlist.

Quite honestly I am scared I will purchase the wrong parts for a 1600 X 1050 gaming rig. I am looking forward to games like DOW 2 which uses the COmpany of Heroes engine. Based on this I would like to be able to max out without a hitch company of heroes, witcher, stuff like that. NOT playing crysis though :laughing:.
What do you think about this parts? Are they compatible?
I am expecially worried if my sound card will work with the speakers and if my motherboard is any good.
Your help is intensely appreciated and I will be refreshing this page often!
