Cool, thanks.

And, sorry once again to you all, but how can I find out if a video card is compatible with a certain motherboard? In this case the Asus Commando.

Sorry for the noob questions .

If it is PCI-Express, it will be compatible.

As for the Raptor hard drive, would I be required to format that in any special way?

IE: In accordance to the motherboard/processor / Windows (even)

Thanks Again

no, they just plug into your sata ports like any other hard drive.

The asus commando requires Ddr2-800, but would recommend ddr2-1000 becuase you can overclock it faster, and becuase the core2duos overclock so well,you will want the faster ram.

Do you recommend any certain PC cases?
This stuff looks pretty good, but it would suck if it didn't fit in a case.

get an intel mobo, and maybe an intel 2.8ghz duo2core. for wow u dont really need to go od on the processor. bump up to 2 gigs total ram. try out your games, shouldnt lag with this upgrade. if you want to go even further, pick up a 200gb hdd and maybe a really good video card.

The commando DOESN'T require DDR2-800. Actually, all SPD's programmed into the RAM are 266, you have to manually adjust the frequency and timings.
