New Gaming Desktop PC (would build it for first time), need help on deals

I have been a long time gaming laptop person but now I i will be getting my first gaming pc which im willing to drop 600 for the rig (i have all the accessories). (max 700)

I mainly play Wow for the moment but also enjoy my FPS. Probably for wow i would like to get the best graphics and for a fps like battlefied 4 i would like to have medium graphics.

Now i have never built a pc but I am a software engineer and have a couple of friends who have built pcs before so hopefully it wont be much of a problem.

I want to buy a pc with the best discounts, so should i wait for blackfriday? or with all these deals going on daily should i just get a list of items i should be looking for to drop in price?

If so, can i get the list and ill probably check their price everyday and if i can get a 20% discount on any piece ill go for it.

Thanks guys ! first post ever here, but i always get info here :D

  1. Obviously wait for holiday deals. You can get a decent rig for that price with deals but if you want something more promising $1k would be much better.

    Do you think wow really needs a 1k gaming rig?

    I will probably play borderlands sequel and farcry 4, but im happy on medium graphics (maybe borderlands high)

    I saw a 600 dollar rig right now on another forums = http://pcpartpicker.com/p/w8LTt6

    It doesn't but you didn't explain what settings you wanted to play on and you mentioned you play fps games.

    A $600 rig will be fine, especially with holiday sales.
