    The HD 7000 series is more expensive than the new R7/R9 200 series. Most of the 200 series is just rebranded 7000 series cards with lower price tags, so there's no reason to go for the 7000 series....

    Your CPU isn't completely embarrassing, and the power supply would support at least a moderately powerful graphics card. A GTX 750 Ti if you want to save power, or eg. an R7 260X or R9 270 if you're...

    The 40-man raid uses the same attunement as the 20-man. Completing 10/13 steps lets you into the 20-man raid, completing 13/13 steps lets you into the 40-man raid.

    Depending on the power supply in your current system, you may have to change that too, in order to accomodate a graphics card update. But the CPU and rest of the system should do alright for the time...

    And CPUs have been running at 1 GHz since at least 2000. So requiring the NX bit and SSE2 means you have to have a much newer CPU... though in practice it's irrelevant to practically everyone.

    Windows 8 has higher hardware requirements than Windows 7. The CPU must support the NX bit, PAE, and the SSE2 instruction set. The GHz requirement is meaningless and I seriously doubt it's actually...

    Which Corsair unit is that? I'd probably recommend an XFX TS 550W in that wattage range, for quiet operation (it's 80 plus gold rated, so there's less waste heat to exhaust so the fan can run slower).

    Both motherboards have full OC support. The lifetime of the CPU itself will be into the decades if you treat it well.

    Not quite. The GTX 760 is well above the limit, barring an exceptional sale. The R9 280 is closer, but you'd still need to find a good sale.

    With a right-sized power supply and without wasting money on the motherboard and CPU cooler, you can get pretty close to $800 with 32GB memory.

    Yeah you can use multiple graphics cards together, that's called SLI (with Nvidia cards) or Crossfire (with AMD cards). They need to be the same model (there's a bit of leeway on the AMD side). There...

    Gaming performance is mainly dependent on drivers, so Windows version won't make a big difference. A few percent this way or that, but you'd never notice it in practice.

    It's a little slower than the GTX 660 and R7 265.

    I would recommend an R9 270. It's the same card as a 270X, just at lower clocks.

    Or if you could go a little above 150, then an R9 280 is...
