Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself to the Tech-Forums community, my name is Joe (Pastasauce) and I have recently discovered the wonder that is computer building
I began researching computer parts in general and looking at different models for the last two months. My current computer is about 3 years old and when initially purchased, I did not intend to do any gaming. Simply, I wanted something that could type assignments and print them. As I got more into the World Wide Web, I began playing small MMORPG's and moved onto things like WoW and CounterStrike. My PC was doing fine with these games but ran very slow. So recently I thought about upgrading. After taking apart my computer I realized the upgrades would cost an excess of $1000! So, I might as well get a brand new, top of the line, computer rig.
After countless hours spent on New-egg and different quotes I have finally obtained my "Master Plans" as it were.
Without further ado: (Sorry for the long intro)
Asus Striker Extreme 775 Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz
2GB of DDR 800 Apacer

What are your thoughts/opinons on this new rig? Do you think it will last a while to play things like Age of Conan, Crysis, Starcraft 2 etc? Should I change anything?
