    Hello everyone,
    As the title suggests i want to build a cpu so i can play wildstar. I have a list of things i want to get but i want to make sure that i will be able to run wildstar and any other new games in the near future. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks!

    AMD FX-8150 black edition CPU
    EVGA geforce GTX 660 GPU
    Gigabyte GA-970A ATX AMD motherboard
    Samsung 840 series 120GB SSD
    Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM
    Corsair TX750 80+ bronze PSU
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD

    well if you are going to say "any other games in the future" then by default you will be able to run Wildstar.
    Most likely your upcoming graphic intensive games will be Destiny, EQN, and Thief and MGS, so if you can run those smoothly then you should have no issues with Wildstar.

    "Gaize, he's building a CPU! Let's watch him assemble diodes!!!"


    This will be posted here again, I'm sure, but there's actually a site with tentative system requirements listed, as well as the information offered officially on the beta signup page.

    The specs listed at the two locations above are minimum specs though, and thus if you're looking to achieve a certain minimum framerate and quality at the same time, I'm afraid the only thing to do is to estimate scaling based on the discrepancies in hardware between your rig and the baseline stats.

    Of course, I can already say that I'm jealous of most of the components you have listed, so I doubt you'll have any trouble having your eyecake and eating it too. >.<

    EVGA GeForces are usually overclocked powerhouses. GPU is probably gonna be the biggest bottleneck so looks like you're good.

    Graphics card should be sufficient.
    Good SSD series
    Plenty of ram
    Don't like Intel? =p

    you should go to the mmo champion computer build forums.
    its what i did and they saved me quite a bit. you can order the parts and have a shop put it together for you and save like 200-300 dollars.
