As you can see Im not doing a good job at keeping it at 800 bucks since I still need a power sup and case ... and ya ..I like flashy cases lol...and the more I think about the more I want a better graphics card ..

Ive built every computer Ive owned ..been using the same case for 7 or 8 years ..its an old viper case lol ..Im going to retire this computer to become a netfilx app in the spare bedroom

Change the motherboard to this if your not crossfiring or SLI. Switch the CPU to this since it will perform the same as the 8120 in gaming performances. You only need 8GB of ram and this ram would do. This power supply and this case would do.

The GPU is ok but your budget is way tight already and it won't be possible to choose a faster GPU.

Thrax,

I basically have the same setup as killerx525 recommending you.

I get 60+ when vertical sync is enable and 100+ when its disable in WOW
On Skyrium I have it on Ultra

In Raid Types environments it 30+ fps

One thing I have the Standard 1GB card 550 ti too that might drop the price down just a bit. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625)

for the cooling I don't OC but I have 3 fans running at 6-7 fans speeds with HAF 922 (Newegg has it out of stock but http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197)

Normal temps 10-15c on all cores

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233205 SSD 90Gb For my Primary OS
I have a secondary dive.

I have a 650 Watt PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020 to power this pc

You will have fun with this build.

I will edit this to include my spec report when i get off from work.

Edit: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/wLpYjr6KxmB36DgiPuY6WOW is my system for reference
