Hello my name is John. Im trying to build a new pc for my little brothers birthday. Hes primarily a social networking gamer. In terms of what he uses a computer for. Im trying to build a comp for him in the 600-700 dollar range with a little bit of leeway. I will prolly reuse a cd/dvd drive I have lying around so no worries there but could anyone hook me up with a build in that price range that could play games such as mw2 and World of Warcraft on optimal settings preferably? Id be happy to answer any questions if someone would like more info to help you help me. I understand whatever you say is provided by your good graces.

Sincerely
John

I just built this pc and I think it would do well for your brother:

MSI 785gtm-e45 mobo
AMD Phenom II x4 9650
Seagate ST31000528AS Barracuda 7200.12 Hard Drive - 1TB, 7200 rpm bought for $40 ($30 rebate)
Patriot Gaming Memory 2 x 2 GB
SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 GPU
Cooler Master RS-460-PMSP-A3 Extreme Power 460-Watt Power Supply
Cooler Master Elite 330 Black ATX Mid-Tower Case
and buy an extra 120mm fan to draw air in the front of the case.
I would classify this as a vudget gaming PC I bought everything here for under $600 and it will run WoW at pretty darn high settings.

Batuchka what would you recommend if I could take out the os and use that $100 dollars to further the build, I may have a friend willing to let me use os disc/key.
