    Can't say I agree with your CPU choice. Starcraft is one of those games that favor Intel greatly, even Sandy Bridge Pentium (yes Pentium, one notch below i3) will beat FX-8xxx when it comes to Starcraft.

    I didn't know MS and IBM where making the 360's CPU for desktops ._.
    Are you some secret IBM employee disguised as an ordinary milkman?

    Intel Xenon? I thought those were the ones built for super computers and shit that people buy off ebay and somehow hook up to desktop motherboards.

    Intel Xeon.

    Xenon refers to PowerPC CPU used in Xbox 360, two completely different thing.

    Xeon wasn't meant for number crunching (super computer) anyway. It is a server grade CPU.

    Super computer uses arrays of number crunching GPUs, such as Nvidia Tesla, to do the heavy work.

    lol

    I see it don't take much to get a thread going around here. I thought the starcraft game in the image was the first starcraft game, but a google search revealed to me that it was released in 2010, so it's not that old. I would probably need to add the same upgrades to my computer to play the game, hell, I gotta set minecraft on the lowest setting just to be able to play the game. I always wanted to build a computer, but just end up buying the cheapest assembled computer on the shelf at the local retailer.

    Like I have said before, Starcraft is one of those games that runs extremely well on Intel (a low end Intel will easily beat high end AMD), so that should be your direction. Plus Intel CPU benefits more in MMO games where CPU matters the most.

    With pre-assembled computer, you are buying the support of the PC, not functionality wise. Hence whenever possible you should build your own PC.

    What FX CPU is that? FX-43xx? FX-63xx? Also just what RAM are you using?

    You may want to keep overclocking as an option in the future, to compensate the performance gap between it and Intel CPU (although you need beefy PSU for FX overclocking, since they are quite power hungry when overclocked). At least that motherboard is a better choice (most people I know would go for ASRock 970 Extreme3 instead, which is an inferior motherboard).
