That's not going to happen at your price point add $200 if you want an i5 750.
Your better off going with an AMD set-up.

No offense but you're not getting a windows 7, core i5 750 and especially at canaidan prices for $800. For that price you're looking at a rana 440, 4 gb, 500 gb hd, a 5770, and some nice psu and case.

And if you really wanted to run wow only then above is exactly what you need. As quiet as possible? That' doesn't really exist in a gaming rig. You have the cpu fan, GPU fan, rear fan, psu fan, and a few more case fans.

Thanks, I don't know if this is a good build since I'm not good with these things but is there a way to make it just a slight cheaper? :)  also is A-DATA good? How about G-SKILL

Oh and you're welcome ^^

Yes there is a way to cut back but your gonna have to wait for them to get these (1-2 weeks) these motherboards will arrive and have all the same features:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

They still support Xfire (8X/8X) but there are a few nerfs for the price but there minor (870 no integrated video-880 it's actually quite similar). G-Skill is another great company. you could also go down to a X3 (435) they perform great in games and they might have a fully functional 4th core but it that's not 100% that they will unlock and work.

So maybe I'll just stick to the parts that you suggested, these are all fully compatible and they will work right? Sorry I don't know much about building computers xD

Yes they will but still those motherboards will probably cut like 20$ off that price. So I dont know it's your decision maybe NCIX will have them earlier and you could price match everything.

Okay well I'm actually about to order the parts right now, it says available for pick-up at Richmond BC which is just a half an hour drive from where I live, do you think they'll put everything together? Or will I have to?

You will have to build it sorry they only sell the parts. As far as I know the only store that NX Source (parent company) owns that builds PCs is NCIX for 50$.
