Well to start off I don't know much about computers. I want to be able to play WoW on one monitor with max graphics, and on another monitor be able to browse/listen to music, that runs smoothly. Right now all i have is an awful laptop, so really anything is an improvement.

I got two different builds from other websites. One is about $940, anothers about $1330, and i've come here to ask how you feel about those two builds, as well as maybe find a build with a price in between though. I'm trying to figure out if i'd rather go cheaper or more expensive, so any advice with that (if the cheaper build isn't enough, or the most expensive is too much etc) would be appreciated.

1) $940

Fix your links, but in either case I would say it could be done better.
