As everyone knows, computers grow old entirely to fast, so here is my thoughts on a new build. My main concern is gameing. Building to get ready for the release of Starwars The Old Republic, like it or hate it, thats what im aiming at lol. I havnt been able to find any recomended specs for the game on the website but so far the research ive done says it should do it nicely. Also if there is anything im going totaly overboard on that i can shave off a bit here or there would be nice. Currently sitting at about 1500 for the rig but would like to get it closer to 1200 or so but if i cant its no big deal.

CPU: Intel Core I7 2600K

Mobo: ASRock P67 EXTREME4

GPU: EVGA 02G-P3-1386-KR GeForce GTX 460

Ram: G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB)

HD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB

PS: Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W

CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible V10

Case: IN WIN Dragon Rider

This is my build so far. I like the dragon rider case. combined with the V10 should allow me to OC the CPU to a pretty decent degree, with air hitting both sides of the CPU at a constant rate. However if anyone has any other ideas or suggestions let me know. Thanks again!


p.s. sorry posted last night while tired and forgot to actualy pose any questions lol. What im hopeing for is any suggestions you gurus of the computer world would make to improveing the build and pointing out any obvious compatability flaws i might have overlooked. Thanks again as always!
