APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within next week
BUDGET RANGE: Up to $1500
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (World of Warcraft & Everquest 2),
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Monitor
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg
Country ORIGIN: USA
OVERCLOCKING: Neverdone it
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Never done it is it worthwhile?
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Max Run a dell 30 inch monitor
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would prefer a build with the Intel i7 quad processor. I'm looking to run max settings at the max amount of FPS during 25 man raids and overcrowded areas for World of Warcraft. I know you dont need the most extreme parts to run WOW but I'd like the be maxed out in all aspects of the WOW game and build my system around it and avoid all lag. I'd also like a rig that will not overheat and lock up when the computer has been running for a long time. It be nice to have a cool lit up case with display add ons and eye candy but not necessary.

I'd appreciate any expertise as I am new to building my own rig. I have 1 rig under my belt making this number 2. A complete list would be nice down to the best cooling fans would be great.

I don't think any pcs will be lag-free on WoW & EQ2 unless you're on FiOS. At the best time of the day, you may get ok with 25-man raids on DSL/cable. Those 2 games have more to do with network than the pc as long as the pc is mid-end.
