Hello everybody, great site I have been reading it for years but just registered. It's been awhile since I have built a computer and I'm looking to put another one together. I've been looking for deals on componets I think would work but the fact is I really don't know what I'm doing anymore. There are a ton of choices out there so I want to make sure I'm getting the best for my money(Who isn't ). Anyways, I've always been a AMD guy but I'm open to options, I've always had Nvidia GPU's also but just recently took advantage of the deal Newegg had on the HD5850. I know Newegg ususally has some really good combo deals, are those available for January yet?
Approximate Purchase Date: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better))
Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) $500
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming(WoW mostly) web surfing, maybe some movies
Parts Not Required:GPU(HD5850) Keyboard, mouse, DVD drive, sound card, case, monitor(Gatewaylp2424).
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Whoever has the best price.
Country of Origin:USA
Parts Preferences:AMD,gigabyte, Asus Nvidia
SLI or Crossfire: most likely no
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200
Additional Comments: Just looking for the most bang for the buck! Thank you!
Thanks everyone, I appreciate any help you could provide me.

I would have to say go Intel 2500K and a P67 motherboard. AMD can't touch it.
Also a good quality PSU, 600W Antec for eg. (see Tom's recent article). Min 2Gb DDR3 1333Mhz also.
