  1. You will be needing monitor, speaker, OS in addition to Case, Power Supply , etc ????
  2. Correct, and im not looking for high graphics or aa or anything like that, just a simple pc that will run WoW.... budget could be increased to about $850 but thats maxing it seeing as i am 15....
  3. Here's a build:

    CPU & Motherboard: $175- i3-2100 & Biostar H61MH (Great Processor and cheap motherboard, lack Sata 6GB/s, and USB 3.0)

    OS: $95- Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64bit)

    RAM: $35- Gskill NS 2X 2GB

    If this goes overbudget, possible option includes dropping the Graphic card to Sapphire Radeon 5670 worth $70. Save $55.

    If there is some money possible upgrades include changing monitor to Acer 21.5" worth $130 or a case upgrade to Sentley Black worth $35
