My current computer is crapping out on me - the graphics card seems to be dying. Since the whole rig is over 5 years old I'm looking to build a new one. Here's the part list from newegg that I've put together. Its probably overkill for the games I play - WoW, Skyrim, DotA - but I want it to last for several years like the last one did. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

i got mine at raven computers in madison, for like $40 extra you get a local warrenty. I don't know much about computers though to be honest.

I haven't looked around lately, but I know for a long time it was fairly standard to also have a HDD to go along with the SSD. The logic behind that being that HDD's are cheap and you can get a lot of extra storage for things you don't care about the SSD load times on. Do you have one you plan on using from your current system or just don't plan on using one?
