800 Euro is = over $1100 US, you should be able to get a pretty good system for that with more than enough fps for WOW.

I'm going to build in USD, because that's what I know. It's well over $1100 (I think).

CPU: i5-750 $195

Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro $190

CPU Cooler (if you decide to overclock): Coolermaster Hyper 212 $30

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1333 mhz CAS Latency 7 $100

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB $55 (1 TB for $85)

PSU: Corsair 550W $80

Case: HAF 922 $80

GPU: HD 5770 $155

Optical: Samsung 22x SATA DVD Burner $27

OS: Windows 7 $100

Total: $1,012. Should be well under budget, and will be able to run WoW at any resolution.

You may not be able to find that RAM in Europe very easily. I know other people have had trouble. The main thing to look for is the CAS Latency 7. Speed isn't nearly as important.

Unfortunately there is a big difrence in prices between europe in usa total cost of the rig you posted is well over 900E
I browsed around again and found this

the rest stayed the same as in you post MadAdmiral
came out about 40e over budget.
Any thoughts on this buy?Is it any good? Will it last? Anything i could swap for cheaper components?

Links don't work.

I really don't like the WD HDD. It's really slow compared to the F3. If you couldn't find that, get a Seagate 7200.12.

That's like a 250% markup on the CPU. Nasty.

That CPU will not work in the board I pointed you to. The board is an Intel LGA1156 board, you need an AMD AM3 one. Luckily, AMD boards are cheaper than Intel. I suggest the Asus M4A79XTD EVO. Over here it's $90 cheaper than the P7P55D-E Pro.

A few things trouble me about that board. First, Newegg doesn't have it, and Newegg has everything. Second, it lists DDR2 as the RAM standard, which if it's an AM3 board, wouldn't work. Third, the speeds of RAM they put on there wouldn't be DDR2 speeds anyway. Might want to check to see if they made an error in the listing...

That's the HDD.
