Hi all,
I'm new around here buy have been coming to OCC for almost two years on and off now for reviews of products.
I'm a huge gamer and atm and for the past 5 years have been eagerly (an understatement) awaiting Guild Wars 2, which I am pretty much obsessed with.
As soon as GW2 does come out I hope to build a new system so I can run the game, and that's actually why I began coming here in the first place.
Well, that's me!

Wow I've never seen so man welcomes in my life XD Thanks all for the kind greetings!

@MercuryDoun, I've been planning this system for about 2 years now so it keeps changing. It's aimed at letting me game while still being cost affective.

Currently I have planned:
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
Case: NZXT Phantom USB 3.0 Black
PSU: Corsair HX-650 Power Supply
Graphics card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti Overclocked 1GB
RAM: Corsair CMP4GX3M2A1600C9 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 Motherboard
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST31000524AS.

The full tower seems a bit over kill since im trying to aim for value, but I fell in love with it when i first saw it so it's my little indulgence.
