Hi all I'm new and could use some help. I have an old dell gen 4 xps that I'm looking to replace and want to try my hand at building a computer. I've never done it before and looking through different articles on the web is turning out to be more confusing then helpful. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what components I can look at to give me a baseline on where I can start.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: would like to be sometime this month
BUDGET RANGE: cheaper the better under $800 would be nice but if you can do cheaper I will be a happy camper
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I'm a World of Warcraft addict and box two accounts, I will also use the computer for surfing the web
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, and speakers. I will need an os but it doesn't have to be part of the budget range
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I've only ever used newegg to buy parts but I'm open to others
PARTS PREFERENCES: I don't really have one I was looking at this for the cpu but I'm not sure if I could get something better for a better price
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe I've never done it before but I'm open to try
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1600x1280
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like to be able to still use the ddr2 ram from my old xps but If I can't oh well. I'm just looking to get the best fps out of warcraft that I can on a limited budget.
