Ok, so I am planning on building a new machine and I'm pretty sure I have all my components correct. I am going to be using a 37" LCD HDTV as my monitor possibly a 42" depending on cost. I have a HDD so that is not an issue, my main concern is that this build i am looking at will play WoW, CoD4/5, Left for dead and future blizzard games at high res and fps. I would like to try crysis but i know not to get my hopes up considering my budget of roughly 700.00 before shipping.

What I have so far is:

Here would be my suggestions. The case you picked out has only 1 fan. I picked a better case that had a psu combo. I picked a much better mobo. Only downfall w/ this mobo, is you won't be able to sli/crossfire. Also picked much better RAM.

Case/psu combo - 85

Mobo - 105

CPU - 188

Video card - 245

That PSU is not very good quality, and it does not have the required connectors for your video card. If you like the case, get it minus the PSU and add a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 500W.
