Hello,

I will be buying computer parts in the next couple of days from Newegg.ca. This will be the first computer I will have attempted to build. Before actually buying anything, I'd like to get some feedback on the computer I've put together, so I can rectify mistakes and consider suggestions.

I basically only want a system that can run WoW, Diablo 3, and Guild Wars 2 on high to ultra/max settings. I game for several hours each day.

Please take a look at my build bellow and tell me what you think. I'm new at all of this, so all feedback or comments on the brands is appreciated.

Thanks!

You don't need a dedicated sound card fro gaming, the motherboard already has onboard sound. I would change the power supply to this because it is a well built power supply. For the gpu, i would switch to this because it is much more powerful and more efficient.
