Budget Gaming Build(First timer!)

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?ItemList=Combo.526609
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150467
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139018
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134792
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136320
CD/DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106334
OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116754
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119068

    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


    $394AR


    OS $100

  5. Thats a nice case so if u could afford it go for it ^^ Hdd not a bad price as well Cheers and happy shopping/building ^^
  6. Slow down on the case and get a better video card. IMO.
  7. 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.
