Budget Gaming Build

I want to build a low budget machine that can play WoW and that's it. The other use will be typical watching downloaded movies/tv in 740p. Here is what I've come up with so far. Do you have any suggestions for parts to upgrade or downgrade? My budget is just a machine that will do the above tasks adequately. If I can do it for cheaper than this build, even better!

Thanks in advance.

  1. Save yourself $80, get the OEM version of windows, only difference between them is the packaging and the price

    Swap the ram for the Ripjaws, they are cheaper after promo code
  2. Thanks Hunter. I wasn't sure about those two versions of Windows. It feels weird actually buying a copy of Windows, but I guess its necessary these days. :)
  3. If u gonna spend $90+ on a HD 5670 i suggest looking at HD 4850/GTS 250 ^^
  4. Thanks Batuchka. I don't really know anything about video cards . How about this Sapphire?

    I'm not too hot wit open box but retail HD 4850s can be had for $99 and is a devastatingly better buy than a $90+ HD 5670 for games hehe
  6. Ok, what about Asus cards? I know Asus used to make great mobo.

    I decided to build a dedicated HTPC for TV and a seperate budget gaming machine for my computer room. I'll use this machine with a 32-40" LCD, probably a Sony Bravia.
