Hey guys!
I'm guessing this is the correct subforum to post builds in, so here it goes:

I am looking to build a system for around 700$ (hopefully a little less?). It is ment to be an entry level (budget) gaming PC, it only needs to be able to run World of Warcraft and some other low end games.

Do you see any way I could get the price on this down, without loosing the BR player (I am hoping to use this as my HTPC also :)  )?

Thanks for the input.

Well.... Its not really any less expensive. The OS is 30$ off, so that makes the pro 110$.

Minus the OS (on my build) is 622.91$. Thats only a 30$ differance, with no BluRay player.

Ill see if I can swap out the HDD with a Samsung F3 + a case combo, that should come out with some savings.

Mkay, new parts list:



Comes out to be:
Total: 697.01$
Tax: 57.58$
Ship: 0$$!!!!

GT: $755.49

A much more acceptable number for my build!

Thanks for putting that list together! I never would have seen the Samsung F3 if not.

So... Do you think this can run WoW, possibly some other light games? I have read the specs on th Radon HD 5770, it seems to be much like the GTX260. Which, I have heard will run WoW.....

[EDIT]

700.49 AR!

Err there is a huge performance gap HD 5770 to HD 6850 actually @@

Ok, Ill look into that. But is the price gap worth it? There is a 50$ difference if I just buy them not in a combo, but I get 27$ off the card when it is in the combo. Plus, the 15$ rebate means a difference of 92$ between the 2 cards.....

All I really need to know is how well the card will stand up to WoW?
Maybe the price gap /is/ worth it. But this is mainly only going to be a computer for work. Gaming would be a nice plus, WoW is the only game that I am interested in running.
