So after doing numerous upgrades for my Dell Dimension E521, I decided I wanted to take a step further and build my own PC. This computer will be for my brother who only really plays World of Warcraft. The target price is 600-650$ and im currently a hair over that.

So far this is what I have:
CPU/Mobo Combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CD/DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thoughts/Suggestions? Many thanks!

Peeps aiming for that 60FPS mark for WOW should know it's more Green camp friendlier (my favorite low cost solution is the GTS 250) and a WOW rig can be slapped on very cheaply with the right juicy combos hehe

Slow down on the case and get a better video card. IMO.

Well, I know its a bit overkill on the case and the card is kind of mediocre. However, I know after I build this PC for my brother my mother will probably ask me to build one for her aswell. So I figured when this time comes my brother would have some extra cash to get a better GPU and I Could use the 450 in my mothers system.
