Budget Gaming Machine

I want to build the best machine possible for gaming at a budget price... around 600-700 bucks. Basically I want to be able to play things like Left 4 Dead on the highest settings, or World of Warcraft with really good FPS. Is this possible in this price range or am I just kidding myself?

Could I get some advice on what I should be looking for? I have browsed Tiger Direct and Newegg, but I just don't know very much about building a machine, please offer any help you can.

I also have monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers that I can still use just fine, so it's really just the actualy case and components I'm after, I'd shed out some more for the OS but the 600-700 is like I said just components.

    WoW is possible. L4D2 may just be out of reach.

  2. The reviews in the RAM sticks page says it's designed for Intel chips, the CPU chip is made by AMD, will there be conflicts here or am I reading these wrong?
  3. It doesn't matter. It's all just marketing.
