Budget Desktop for World of Warcraft

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: In the next few weeks BUDGET RANGE: ~600

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Wow+ventrilo+fraps

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg is preferred COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: Non

OVERCLOCKING: Yes SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050 or 1920x1200)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The system will be used mainly for wow. Ideally I would like the door left open for other games but right now Wow is the focus. As an avid player it's important that I have a very good framerate, even when running fraps and ventrillo.

Budget is flexible, but looking to keep around 600 if it will meet my goals. Need OS advice too!

TY in advance!

    Total: $652. A tad overbudget. Could drop the GPU down to the HD 4850 to save, but it's less powerful and definitely worse for future proofing.
