    That processor is also a complete waste of money, the i7 920 can OC to that and still have a ton of room left (920 can go upwards of 4.4GHZ)

    Why the hell are you only getting 1066 DDR3? DDR3 1600 is cheap and a helluva lot faster.

    HDD is meh, its a raptor & a data drive.

    GFX card... If you can dump the money into a ****ing I7 975 why the hell can't you get something better than a 4850? Go for a 4890 (or 2) or get a GTX 260/275/higher
    Look at your post, now back to mine; Now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate content, it could look like mine. Look down, backup, where are you? You're scrolling through threads, reading the post your post could look like. What did you post? Back at mine; It's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again and the reply is now diamonds.

    Anything is possible when you think before you post. The moon is shrinking.

    HP, Dell, Alienware... They all suck.
    Way overpriced and limited part selection.

    Custom built ftw.

    GTX 260 (216), I like Nvidia more than ATI because they don't tend to screw me over with drivers (Had an ati, wasn't a pleasant experience).

    I don't play wow anymore, but get ~40fps+ @ 1680x1050 on high settings in left4dead/team fortress 2

    Yeah, that comp is overkill for WoW

    CPU is way too phat

    The the graphics card doesn't match up to the CPU. Always get balanced parts
