This is a rather simple question: I eventually plan to develop games once I get good enough at programming. If I were to, say, want to code for an extremely large MMO (like WoW or Runescape), what type of hardware would I need? What I'm planning on doing is building a new rig and I want to know what I need as far as the programming goes. This is what I planned on getting, but I want to know if it's overkill.
Either dual 7970s or 680's.
32gb of RAM (2400 for gaming purposes)
and an ASRock Z77 Extreme4.
Will this only affect me gaming-wise, or will it affect coding as well? I eventually plan on buying servers as well as developing on a console level (50gb blu-ray games will be huge lol), but that is years away, and I'm trying to build something that will last me through college as far as programming goes. (As far as gaming goes, my goal is quad sli with two 690's.)
