I prefer a premade. I have owned a cyberpower. It ran flawlessly from April 06 until a week ago when it fell off my desk during my move and landed in few inches of water.

I have no preference either way. I just have
WOW withdrawal and I want (need) to play.
I have seen a coworkers intel i5 760 play wow, but don't know GPU or motherboard he has.
maybe, but no plans to do it.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE:
just a single GPU should do fine. No plans for SLI OR CROSSFIRE
MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have a viewsonic VG2030wm capable of 1680x1050
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I don't have the time, or energy to build a computer. To be perfectly honest I don't really want too. I know my limitations.
I built a PC mainly for WoW last december for a different budget. One thing I would recommend would be to focus more on the CPU rather than the GPU. If its in your budget, I'd suggest an i5 or better, and a ATI 5000 whatever fits.
You probably dont want to hear this but building a custom computer would be much better for you. Its a better value and more options.
