Hi guys, I have recently decided that i have had enough of my computer and i decided to build a new one. A friend and I have been working on it, but what he is recommending seems so expensive for what I am looking for. This may just be me though. I am hoping to run games like World of Warcraft and League of Legends on it on the higher qualities and get 60 fps. I may want to have the ability to record/stream one day so if that doesn't make the price astronomical, i would love to have it. Any suggestions are very much appreciated. Thanks!
Crusad3r he wasn't talking about the GPU but the PSU and cooler. I agree with him on the PSU part though, I don't think you should ever go for lesser options there, same as with your CPU, those two are the heart of any PC.

Smok3Dogg I don't see the point of him having it if he's only going to be playing WoW and LoL. Those games don't even require a graphics card to play at max graphics settings. Tried and tested with an i5 3330 with 8gb of ram.
Other things: - your case and psu are very expensive. You can save at least $100 on them - any particular reason you went for an aftermarket cooler? The stock cooler you get with your CPU works better than the one you linked
The hyper 212 runs circles around stock cooler. Do you know what you are talking about?
As for case it is personal choice. And never skimp on a PSU. It is heart of your build.

It's not much different from Win7 except for a new UI

No need to downgrade at all. 8gb of ram these days is extremely cheap. Only 40-50 bucks. It'll still be cheaper than getting that mobo with the free ram
No idea why people would recommend you to stay away from Win8. It's not much different from Win7 except for a new UI

Because the RAM isn't free anymore, should I downgrade?
Also, people have highly recommended that I stay away from win8? Do you think its worth it?
