Wow pc for 600-700

This is the first time I have ever considered doing my own PC build, but after some research it seems like the only way I am going to get a PC that is going to run WOW in any decent manner for the money I can spend is to do it myself.

  1. For WOW, you want a GeForce graphics card ($190 AR GTX 560Ti?). I'm busy right now, but I'll come back later. Make sure you don't get a cheap PSU brand. Stick to Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX unless you have a great review supporting a specific different product.
  2. CPU: $211 i5-2500K on

    Mobo: $130 Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (jtt283's suggestion)

    RAM: $29 PNY 4GB (2x2GB) 1600CL8
    Buy this ASAP before it's not available.

    HDD: $55 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. Wait for the Newegg sale.

    PSU: $75 Any 750W Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX. Sign up for Newegg's email list and wait for a sale. Keep an eye on

    Graphics: $190 Galaxy GTX 560Ti

    Case: $35 Thermaltake V3

    DVD: $0 used IDE/SATA frome anywhere

    TOTAL (after rebates): $725

    I know it's not in your budget, but it's close and makes no compromise to total awesomeness. I recommend you wait 3 weeks and let Bulldozer get released to force prices down. Then you'll be able to have all this within your budget.
