Optiarc burners are noisy low quality burners, Samsung is a little better and more silent.
Samsung SpinPoint F3 are overall OK quality considering the price, but noisy during spin up and I would use something like WD Black for important files.
And for now stay away from AMD graphics. Performance is low, they lack video acceleration, OpenGL support is unstable. Do yourself a great favor and get a nVidia card instead. Radeon is playable for such games as WoW, but I guarantee you nVidia will give better performance and overall experience, I'm saying this both as a gamer and OpenGL developer.
There's probably a reason why 4 people have suggested in this thread that you use an nVidia card, versus one who suggested you just use a better card from ATI.
But hey, do what you feel.
Aside from my dislike of consoles, its not going to fly anyway. The WoW has no console port, and fable III only runs on an xBox 360, which IMO is the worst of them. You get a'dded features' like Microsoft taking people to court for DCMA 'vilolations' for modchipping them, etc.. Better to run windows than deal with that junk, and have yet another piece of hardware littering the house.
If you can run stalker at 'max' on a 40 euro card then you've got a fairly low resolution, and/or arent using AA/AF.
Even if you could run 4670 + 5670 in crossfire, its still not a good idea on a 770-G45. Its got 1 x 16x PCIe slot, 1 x 16x PCIe slot (running at x4). The 2nd x16 PCIe slot running at x4 will impact on crossfire....

might be. i think resolution was 1280x1024 on a 19" monitor. not sure if AA was on or not. but it was DirectX9c, winXP, 2 GB RAM, radeon 3650 HD (512MB DDR3 ram i believe). porcessor is some single core AMD forgot exaclty which oneIf you can run stalker at 'max' on a 40 euro card then you've got a fairly low resolution, and/or arent using AA/AF.
maybe soem shadows were off or reduced as it seems they often give me issues. but all in all good experience. sometimes you just don't see much of a different with certain settings on or off...
Will that RAM cause any problems if i use it? I have no clue what the risks are, since this is my first PC build.
GTS 450 it is. Thank you guys.

I'm no guru, but I think you may have to install Windows in order to get better graphics support. I might be way wrong, though. Again, I'm no guru.
