It feels a lot worse than what it was last year... Can't tell if I'm spoiled or if there just isn't any quality content

I bought the collector edition, which was very expensive, thinking the game would be awesome, but sadly I was very wrong GW2 was and still is very disappointing to me.
I wont buy a thing with real money for GW2 I just do with what the game will offer me, after all I do not like it as I thought I would, plus I do not like lotteries or RNG, I do not find them fair and most of all I do not like games with them on ..... people get addicted which is not a good idea. I wonder why Anet has it on their game being Americans and not Koreans it's really wrong.

Because a korean company is managing the in-game cash shop (As far as I'm informed, Nexon) thus comes the lot of RNG consumables... sad really, but it's how it is and how it will be

Oh no, I don't intend to crossfire with this setup.

Thanks to everybody who helped me make up my mind about my new configuration. Cheers, keep doing what you do best! And see you in game!

Your last setup looks like a very good one.

Consider swapping Asrock with a Gigabyte, MSI or preferably even Asus with similar specs. The extra five bucks give you better heatsinks.

The PSU looks ok, but I still recommend going with top brands for it. Reliability is everything, your entire system depends on it. Corsair's the obvious choice, again worth the extra five bucks.

Also. No known issues with the lga 1155 sockets.

If I recall right Fortron used to be good regarding PSU, might be quite wrong though.

That's the MOBO I came across, compared it to the AsRock one and couldn't find anything that I'll be missing on the Asus one, correct me if there's something that I haven't noticed about it, thanks

Above config:

- there's no need for 1.35v RAM. You could save a bit by using standard 1.5v (Don't get 1.65v though)

- I'm not familiar with Fortron PSUs - I'd go for the Corsair CX600, but the Fortron may be fine. - http://nikem-bg.net/...er-Series-CX-V2

- programming takes brain power, not computer power. Unless you are programming professionally, you need not worry about the above config. Even if you are doing it pro or semi-pro, the only difference would be time - a more powerful CPU might take less time to compile the results. But you are only talking minutes at the most.

Thankies for your help, I am just curious, why does the voltage matter so much for the RAM?
I thought that less voltage means lower heating.
