  1. If the only thing you want to do is play WoW, you can get that for about $750 (excluding OS).

    CPU/Mobo: X4 425 and Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 $210 after rebate
    HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 $30
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115
    HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55
    Case/PSU: Antec 300 Illusion and Antec Earthwatts 500W $120
    Optical: Cheapest SATA DVD burner $20
    GPU: HD 5770 $150

    Total: $755.

    If you're looking to spend your budget and play any game out:

    CPU: i5-750 $200
    Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro $190
    Case: HAF 922 $90 after rebate
    PSU: Silverstone 850W $150
    GPU: HD 5970 $650
    Rest is the same $220

    Total: $1,480. Stick in a SSD or a larger HDD.
  2. Would your I5 build be better than THIS PC ?
  3. Yes. That's about the same (gaming wise) as the $700 build.
  4. 5970 is out of stock :( what card should i get instead? and do i really need 850w psu if i dont have the 5970?
  5. What about OCZ 700w
  6. Agree with tecmo. The OCZ 700W is cheap, but it's just not powerful enough if you want to add a second card later.
