Hey guys. So I've tried asking this before and got some great answers but my price range has gone up slightly. I have around $700 with a max of $800 although I'd like to stay as low as possible without sacrificing performance. I'd like to run the games listed below at max as well as have some wiggle room for upgrades. Also, I do NOT need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, or OS.

Games: WoW, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Mount and Blade: Warband, Shogun Total War 2 (all total war games), Possibly Skyrim. And I may start getting into some FPS games and other RTS and RPGs.

This is what I have so far: All from Newegg
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Total: $565.94
So, I think that all I need is a case and graphics card, but if you find any other parts that would be better then that would be great.
