i got a friend who ordered a i7-990X and three GTX 580's and 24gb of ram
he will play a lot of games but WOW is important to him

Ok, whether he will play a lot of games or not matters less than what resolution he will be playing at. The only way three GTX 580's could be justified is with a surround gaming setup. And 24 GB of RAM... for gaming? An i7-990x...for gaming? Really? Get 8GB of RAM, an i7-2600k, and depending on his resolution, probably only one GTX 580 but if it's surround feel free to grab two or three.

WoW isn't going to require or even make use of an i7-990x, 24 GB of RAM, and tri-sli GTX 580's, running six instances or not.
