It's finally time for me to upgrade to a new computer I decided. After achieving Lv70 on WoW using dial-up and this box, that is probably about it's limit and needs replacing. I'm looking to build a computer that is primarily for gaming but will also be used for media such as Photoshop work and watching videos/movies. I'd just like to know if everything that I have picked would all be compatible and whether or not I should replace parts with other parts etc.

All prices are in NZD (Where I am from) :huh:
