Budget gaming build 800$ need advice on mobo and antivirus

Ive got most of this build figured out i swiched a few things i was originally wanting to go for parts that imcould save $$$. This computer will mostly just be used for WoW and maybe a couplemof other games.

i5 3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2 GHz 1155 $179.99

EVGA Superclocked Geforce GTX 660 2 GB $169.99

Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO $33.99

G. skill Ripjaws 8GB 2x4 1333 $61.19

Seagate 1 TB 7200 rpm Hard drive $59.99

Corsair CX600M 80 plus Bronze $59.99

Coolermaster HAF 932 Advanced Blue edition $159.99

Win 7 64 bit OEM $79.99

$745.13 + mobo

1. I still need a motherboard i obviously wont be overclocking
2. The ram i got is 1333 vs 1600 i can switch them if its that important for WoW
3. I think this build will get me started into PCs and leave me open to add a SSD and a awesome CPU/ GPU a little later on when i have more funds. I can give older parts to my little brother for his computer
4. This computer will only be used for gaming not web surfing so some light anti virus would serve me best.

  1. 1.
    2. Yeah I would go for 1600mhz ram. It's not that much more expensive:

    Change the psu to this:

    You could get a much better gpu if you cut down on the case. There is no need for a full tower if you're not going to do a custom loop.
    Case options:

    NZXT Phantom 410 -
    Corsair 500R -
    Fractal Design Define R4 -

    And then get this gpu:
  2. With that motherboard from Newegg and a DVD drive as well as upgrading to (blue will match build better) $860 for everything including OS.

    Can anyone comment on how to prevent virus/ spyware. I will not be web surfing at all. This computer is for gaming 99% just WoW
    Thanks for the help

    For antivirus I suggest picking up Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and CCleaner (not really an anti-virus, but gets rid of junk files that build up that 'slow' your computer down).

    If you're swagging treasure and sailing on the high seas, def recommend Nod32. Makes you darn near invincible.

    Do not go with Norton or others, it's a pain to use and always blocks crap with annoying popups.

    As a general rule of thumb to avoid viruses, make sure that you have your firewall up, do not go on dodgy websites, do not click on dodgy things, do not download dodgy things, do not get freeware or pirated software without doing your homework, no pr0n on the computer.

    Just go on trusted websites that you know and love and odds are you will be good.
