Hello eveyone. I have been looking around for a new computer for a while, and i'm really in need of help. I have about $750 to spend on the computer itself(with OS). If you guys can suggest anything i would be really awesome. Wow is the only thing that i really play, and i watch videos about wow. I do arena's in wow so its not as intensive as a raid, but wow is more CPU intensive then GPU from what I've heard. Thanks for reading if you can suggest anything please post.

I know that i shouldn't skimp on the computer but i really need the mouse/keyboard/headset, because they are all VITAL to playing in arenas in wow. I play with a cheap optiplez gx520, dell mouse and a belkin 2 button mouse :/ . If you guys can suggest anything to lower the cost, but still play wow ultra at about 30-60 fps, in bg's, dues, arena's that would be awsome. Thanks for looking

If you haven't read this WoW Cataclysm Hardware guide it's really worth a read.

Best performance far and away in WoW are Intel CPUs. I'd go with at least the Intel 2400 ($190)

and their non- overclockable H61 motherboard, even if you have to downgrade your GPU from the GTX460 1GB to the GTX460 768mb to stay in budget.

A P67 and the 2500K would be better in the long run, but would drive you over budget.
