APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 2 Month's or w/e i get my bonus

BUDGET RANGE: 900-1600 before rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: None I need to upgrade all my stuff anyways

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg or w/e is cheapest and keeps in-stock almost always

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA/OR

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD Fanboy <<< would also like to use Nvidia video card as i think its more idiot friendly

OVERCLOCKING: Never done it and most likely don't plan on

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want it to run windows 7, run World of Warcraft at max setting with 40 FPS or higher, and be able to run Aion and left for dead 2 pretty well i do occasionally burn movies too and i have never built a computer myself but i do have a friend who has built about 20 rigs so i think ill be fine

Heres what i have come up with so far as far as components id like to know if any of them are incompatible or if there's something better as far as bang for the buck

CD/DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... [i have heard a lot of good about antec cases however i dont know if i should get the 1200 case instead for the room as i do want some leeway for everything else]

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mouse:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... my friend has one of these and i love the grip on it :) 

Keyboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i like saitek i have tried the cyborg model and didn't like it cause it was to big but i think ill like this model a lot

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... im not to sure on this it was recomended to me by a coworker but im not sure about it:( 

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i have a 21" monitor at the moment with horrible quality

Mother-board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... again not 100% sure

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... from what i have heard this is an amazing bang for the buck but i was hoping for 1 gb of video is there any other nvidia cards that have a little more video memory or any other good bang for the buck?

Headset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... doesnt really matter but i am getting a set of decent headphones included in the price

as for case fans i might add 1 more in the future

anyways is this a decent gaming rig for running WoW at max and running aion/lfd2 sufficient?

im welcoming suggestions on different parts too :)

You can get the Blu-Ray DVD drive combo here for 109,99 USD

thank you hpsucks
in all honesty i have learned not to trust factory made computers such as cyberpowerpc etc.. because i have had too many bad experiences with them but on another note i will look into that gtx 260 as it sounds very interesting

even the ati 5770 is a great card

bang for buck and nvidia dont sit well together

and the sansung f3 1tb its currently the fastest 1tb on the market
