Scatter already stops auto attacks. We'll be MM so wyvern doesn't really matter either.

However, I doubt mages would want a tiny-dmg spell constantly going off they can't stop and possibly breaking CC.

Only if the shot isn't already in the air... or if you don't tab to it (in Blizzard's totally not awful tab targetting system that they broke in TBC) or auto-tab to it by hitting a ranged ability on a target as it fades out (feign, vanish, etc).

TSG your tactic will vary depending on who they go for. They will most likely just tunnel your DK, which is not that good for you as if you try to mirror the tactic, the warrior will always outdps hunter. In my opinion, best tac would be going heavy on the warrior while blowing the enemy paladins CDs with CCs(and cc-cycles) and making switch for the DK if warrior just plays with shield on. After shieldwall, trinket+bubble from paladin it should be fairly easy kill. If your DK is taking too much damage he can always try to kite them around in frost trap / dececration and playing defensive.

RLS locks are almost unkillable in the current patch. Your best bet is to train the rogue hard and if you dont get any succes with this one, add grip+stun+silence switches for the shaman. If you execute it properly, you should get the shaman fairly easy down as long as your paladin pops few healing CDs to keep you both up and running. CC the shaman hard, try to force trinkets before your most serious grip+stun+silence attempts.

RMP, you can either play it semi-safe tunneling the mage with extremely defensive positioning from your paladin to avoid CC-chains. CC-chaining their priest is relatively easy and the mage will most likely just block due from damage / priest being CCd. As priests suck in the most current patch, you can probably also just zerg the priest while throwing some CC to mage/rogue to prevent them from peeling too hard. Combination of switching between mage/priest should also work, but to be on the safe side dont switch too often here.

Warrior/melee/paladin meleecleaves will probably just zerg you if they train your DK hard enough. Not much you can do againts most of them unless you can get some excellent CC-chains going on enemy paladin while still putting enough damage to force the enemy defensive. In most teams mages and SPs are good targets, you dont want either of them to freecast and CC your paladin (controlling the mage > controlling the priest).

EDIT: Disclaimer: Hunters suck pretty badly at the moment, you will either feel weaker version of mage/warrior depending on what you facing. In almost all cases picking warrior/mage over hunter makes a top-tier setup when playing PHDk will make you post QQ-posts on WoW forums.

Alright so I don't need more wattage using one graphics card
No - you don't need more wattage. 600Watts should treat you just fine once again assuming you're running the computer as it is shipped to you....don't go plugging in another video card, 10 hard drives and powering a water cooling set up off it and you'll be fine ;)

Melonjuice said:

the card is decent(?).
Guessing your refering to the 8800GT - Yeah its a good selection for your budget I would say.

Melonjuice said:

3gigs is GOOD correct? Since Vista will only run "~3.2"?
Yeah you will be good with 3gbs. You will get slightly better performance out of dual channel mode 4gbs. But probably nothing you would notice running stock.

And now the motherboard, you said an ASUS P35 board? Are you talking about the Asus P5K Intel P35 CrossFire Chipset LGA775 FSB1333 DDR2/800 Mainboard w/GbLAN, USB2.0, IEEE1394, & 7.1Audio ? The default one that is given when you open the link is QX9650 Support) Asus P5N-D nForce 750i SLI Chipset LGA775 FSB1333 DDR2 Mainboard

Motherboards can be really tough because they essentially determine how robust and "future-proof" (I hate that term) your computer CAN be. So I hate to "tell" you what to get here. Both of those boards are good. And honestly you might be more "future-proof" having the option for SLI (The default ASUS P5N-D)  If I were to upgrade that motherboard from the options given (keeping in mind I don't plan on using SLI) I would jump up to the "Asus P5K Premium/WIFI-AP" for the plain and simple reason that it has WiFi and I need WiFi in my home office.  But again - all other things being equal the default P5N-D SLI has the feature of being able to run SLI whereas the other 2 boards I listed can not. So +1 to that board on that front. Also that board has 2 of the PCIexpress2 slots I was talking about earlier so that would mean you could run full SLI (both cards at 16x).

I guess after all that - I have convinced myself that the P5N-D board is probably a good choice for you :)

So far you've done more than an awesome job, wish there was a "Thanks" option or +kudos. :)
No worries. I love talking about this stuff. But the site does support reputation - no need giving me any, but just so you know just click the scales of justice above any post to give positve or negative reputation to a user for that post :)
