You definitely want a 560ti or higher for WvW, I have seen somewhere around 500 people on my screen at once all casting skills and my 560ti was pulling 30 FPS when overclocked so really I would probably go 570 at the very least.

Other than that anything anyone in this thread has said is great.
go to shopbot.ca and pricebat.ca to find the lowest prices and then you can pricematch them to memory express of NCIX.

Oh thanks I did not know about those bots (yes I'm a noob lol), shopping for prices will be faster now. And yes WvW will be one of the main attraction to GW2 and will actively participate with my guild that is why I was looking at the GTx 570 who is very affordable right now.

Ok I finally found a case that seems to include everything I want for 75$
Sentey Extreme Division GS-6070 II Abaddom Newegg.ca - Extreme Division GS-6070 II Abaddom Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case / USB 3.0 / 2 x Fan Control

6 fans (so no need to buy additional ones, money saved here)
USB 3.0 port, fan controllers
dust filter tray, cable management

Sweet deal you think? I don't mind the rugged look, I'll be looking at my screen not my computer hehee. 65$ saved here and I could drop also the SSD and add it later this year for another 80% saved. I end up at 998$ before shipping and taxes.
