Well unfortunately im almost at the end of my budget so I might just stick with i5 2400s and the computer will mostly only play world of warcraft which I believe the video card should be more then enough to handle?
I believe decent clockspeeds can come from the i5 2400?
Your system is overkill for what you need it for. I remember playing WoW on a Geforce2 back in the day lol.
Save a few bucks and get an AMD Phenom II proc/mobo. Then upgrade your Graphics/PSU if you want.
A local place here, Microcenter, even gives out free motherboards with certain Phenom CPUs.
I agree with Krazy. Not knocking your Sandy Bridge rig, but unless your really have to have a sandy bridge rig. You could make a decent AMD Build that will fit more than your current needs. If I am not mistaken your current build is about $750 - $800.
This AMD build is based off your comments (On a sidenote this PC is on a budget and will be used primarily for office documents/movies/casual streaming/World of Warcraft.)
Even if you added the GTX 460 it still would be cheaper than the Sandy Bridge.
I wanted a Sandy Bridge system but the system I wanted ($950) was out of my budget.
Here is my AMD Build and like yourself I mostly play WoW, but I also do play SCII, Call of Duty and Battlefield.

Haven't purchased the Graphics Card, it's out of stock until 1/31/11. The price is included in the total, could be cheaper if the price comes down. So I am waiting until the middle of February to see if the prices come down. ATM it's between the 6850 and GTX 460.
Anyways, I hope this helps with your decision. Good luck with your system no matter which way you go.
