I'm not sure about WoW (never played it before), but I'm sure it'll do at least medium settings on all Blizzard games.

I run wow on ultra on my 9800+; he'll be fine with the 250.

Diablo 3 will be the same thing, at least from what I played in my limited time in the beta.

You can get the exact same AMD x4 960T + ASUS M5A97 + Hyper 101A combo for $33 less at NCIX in combo.

That psu will have no problem running that set up. How does amazon shipping to canada work? Is it a lot more? If it isnt u may save some money if u buy from amazon.

Remember you can PRICE MATCH to other stores if you buy from NCIX or CanadaComputers or MemoryExpress (and some other Canadian stores).  i.e. you can take that CanadaComputers $40 DDR3-1600 RAM price and price match it at NCIX to consolidate retailers for an easier order.

Yep, the mobo, psu and cooler come in a combo for 199.99$. The subtotal comes to 503 with all price matching and rebates included. I may just hold off on the gpu for a while.

Like i said, the cpu mobo and cooler all come in the combo, so i won't be changing out the cooler for that one. Would that memory be better?
