I run ultra on an X3 435 (unlocked to a quad)@3.2GHz with a sapphire 5770 sat on an AsRock m3a770de,
Your proposed build is well overkill for W/oW hehe :p 
unless you do anything more cpu intensive with it, I would drop the chip to a 955be
and post the other intended components,monitor resolution psu etc, dont want you buying a pos psu :) 
*Edit what is the resolution of said highdef lcd? 1920x1080? 1650x 1050? check your display properties to find out or post model number

Lol, rich boss with ego problems. :p 

A Phenom II X4 955BE + AM3+ board + 4GB RAM + HD 6850 is gonna maxx the game at 1920x1080. Anything more powerful is fine, but will not make in difference in the quality at which the game runs.

Oh! I do have one more question... I don't know if you guys play WoW but do you have a rough idea what my Framerate might be? I have a really good Internet connection and my computer will be connected via Ethernet.

It would be more then 60 fps on raids, So no more excuses when you get yelled by your raid leader about standing on them Fire Patches and getting hit with Noobish Coloring mechanics... :D

Depending on what your budget is, and how much overkill you want to do, but a SSD will make WoW's loading screens a thing of the past.

With a 6750 I can use Ultra settings (1920x1200) except for max view distance, so you should be fine. The 6870 has a lot more bandwidth.

Isn't the view distance dependent on ram?
