I want to play PlanetSide 2, World of Warcraft, Starcraft II, Star Conflict, Guild Wars II, and maybe a few other games I find on the way. I use Steam for downloading the games (except for the Blizzard games), so I have no need for an Optical Drive. I also would like to play those games at 1920x1080. Considering that I like this build, the only things that I need help with determining is the monitor, keyboard and mouse, and what operating system I should use. For the operating system, I was
thinking of Linux Ubuntu, considering that Steam might move to Linux, but now I don't know considering the fact that I couldn't find out if it was a rumour or not. All that being said, what do you think?
PS: I have Windows 7 Home if Windows 7 is a good idea. The only thing is that many gaming companies may be moving towards Windows 8 only games, so I don't know
PPS: If the CPU bottlenecks the GPU, will I be able to overclock it to fix the problem?
PPPS: I hope this is enough information!
