I probably linked the wrong thing because I didn't get any of the parts from new-egg but it looked pretty close.

The final specs:

RAM: 4GB 800 DDR2 RAM
Graphics Card: 8800GTX 768MB
Hard drive: 500GB 7200RPM
Processor: Q6600 Quad-Core Processor
Mother Board: Asus Striker Extreme Gaming Motherboard
PSU: 525W Power Source


First question: Will my computer run World of Warcraft on the highest possible setting? With at least a 60+ frame rate?

Second question: Will I be able to leave one game open and alt tab into Windows to check MSN/do some work on Word without lagging?

Third question: Will my PC be able to handle Crysis? If so on what setting?

Final question: Approx. how long until my computer becomes obsolete (or as close to as possible)?
yes

yes

yes, high with no AA

3 years?

yeah its definitely a sweet pc, should be able to handle stuff thrown at it for a few years. a gtx paired with q6600 = pwnage.

it'll handle WoW for sure, as well as multitasking with ease.. i dunno about crysis though seeing as how i don't own it but others should have a better idea. i would agree with the others saying you should be able to get high settings at 1680x1050 or higher.

Well telling when a PC is becoming or is obsolete thats a personal choice/opinion, IMO for example: look vernong1992 sig he still have that computer and he use it daily even though we could say his PC is obsolete maybe it is for us but not for him because after all he still use it and I'm certain he still play games on it .
