New MMO i7 system... does this look ok?


Mar 1, 2009
Hi guys,
Just wanted to double check before I order the last of the parts for the system I am getting ready to build... Mostly for playing Lord of the Rings Online, World of Warcraft... maybe some more advanced stuff. Going to use Vista 64 bit home premium. I want to play in 1920x1200 resolution and might mildly overclock at a later date or add a second graphics card later.
Just wondering if these parts will work well together or if something else would be better/more cost effective...

I've already bought at my local Microcenter:
Antec Nine Hundred case
Intel i7 920
Asus P6T motherboard

Here's what I'm looking at in my Newegg cart:
LG DVD burner

WD 640Gb Caviar Black

Corsair 850W PSU (actually $100 with email code now)

EVGA 260 core 216 GPU (not sure if 280/285 would be worth the extra $$ atm?)

Corsair Dominator DDR3 6Gb Ram

Xigmatek XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V

Also some artic silver...unless there's something better

Thanks for all the help everyone!

Sounds good, you may want to use cheaper memory than the Dominator; by and large RAM is RAM is RAM unless you are tweaking the last fraction of a Hz out of performance.
