Are you going to be over clocking if not just use the stock cpu cooler and get a gtx 560 ti twin frozor cooler. wow is now a demanding game.
yes i am going to overclock and thanks for the responce but i read the twin frozer has a magor glitch with this mb don't get me wrong i was going to get a gold edition twin frozer i love the look of that card
For gaming and video playback you would never need 8 GB of RAM. Save some money there, anything above 4GB is really overkill.
This system will be a great upgrade from your Phenom 9550 though.
With the price of ram these days, I think it should be fine to have 4gb+ of memory, especially 2x4gb DIMMS. But it is true that we normally don't use a lot of ram.
well i opted for 8 gig cause i run a full game of WoW . while raiding i often open a wideo on the second monitor such as an instrutional video for the particular fight i am working on
