I'm a huge MMOer, I'm currently re-involved with WoW. I'm getting this new build for $1000 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, already ordered the chassis (realized in hindsight, bad decision if this build sucks). I used http://www.custompcguide.net/800-900-dollars-pure-custom-gaming-pc-build/ for a reference. I follow recommendations except I changed the memory for the above listed. I've been testing my specs on game-debate and they say everything will run great. I'm interested in playing Battlefield 3, Skyim, and Sims 3, and as far MMOs go, Rift, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Guild Wars 2. What settings will I be able to run these games on? Moderately high?
Questions (if you don't like reading paragraphs about my life) :
Is this a decent build for a gaming computer? STRICTLY gaming.
Will Battlefield 3 run problem-free, play well, and at what setting?
Will Skyrim run problem-free, play well, and at what setting?
Will Rift run problem-free, play well and at what setting?
Will Star Wars: The Old Republic run problem-free, play well, and at what setting?
Will Guild Wars 2 run problem-free, play well, and at what setting? (I'm not sure if this can be answered at the present time with GW2 still waiting for release)
Also, I realize the above questions were redundant but it gives enough spacing for each question to be answered correctly. All games run differently. Thanks for your time, I appreciate your help tremendously. For a fact, I have no experience in building a computer whatsoever.
