Budget: $450
Purchase: 1-2wks
Don't need: Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, OS, Optical Drive, Monitor.
Overclocking: Maybe
Retailer: Newegg.com
Use: I'm mainly going to use this computer to play World of Warcraft and I want good FPS.

CPU:
AMD Athlon II X3 435 Rana 2.9GHz $78.99

MOBO:
GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard $79.99

GPU:
GIGABYTE GV-R467ZL-1GI Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 $74.99

Memory:
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) $104.99

HD:
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" $54.99

Case & Power:
Rosewill R103A Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 350W 20+4 pin connector Power Supply $39.99

This is my current build. The Memory is currently the most expensive part to this build and I was looking for a alternate solution of a cheaper price. I also never bought a case/power combo and was wondering if this would be a solid selection. As I mentioned before this computer will be used primarily for World of Warcraft so high end graphics are not needed. Any suggestions on cheaper upgrades or a more solid build with a $450 soft cap are appreciated. Thank You.

These ripjaws are about the same for ten bucks less and free shipping:

That PSU will most likely be junk as I couldn't find any specs for it. It would be money well spent to buy a quality 380-400w PSU and case.

Also, just a thought, you could consider going with a mini atx mobo and use the extra money for a ~4850.

The Memory you recommend was 1600 and the motherboard "Memory Standard" is DDR3 1666(OC)/1333/1066. Does that mean I will have to Over clock my mobo so I can use the 1600's? It seems as if 1333 is the limit unless you O'C.

As for the psu, I was considering a

As for case the only one to make any sense to me would be

The price is higher then most, but it offers free shipping and comes with fans.

When you put any 1600 memory in it will technically be an overclock, but you would want to go in to the bios and set your timings anyway. The memory does not have to be set at 1600, all the 1600 means is that the manufacturer has spec'd it out to be stable up to that speed(in this example, 1600 at 9-9-9-24 I believe).

As for the PSU, I have been hearing nothing but negative things about Rosewill's PSU's lately. I would go for this Corsair for $20 more:

Or this Antec:

The Antec 300 is a great case, I have built with it before. I also like the 200, I have built with it as well. Really its the same case, I just personally like the look better:)
