Everyone keeps saying build your own PC, so I figured I would give it a shot. I don't know a lot about it but I have read some. What I need to know is there a computer that I don't have to build out there in the $600-700 range? If not can someone help me put together a computer that will run WoW. Which is the only game I play efficiently. Thanks here is my idea.
(is the built in power supply enough?)

I know I am missing a graphics card I figured you guys could help? and I am not sure about the Ram. Like I said I don't know alot and this build could be bad enough that if would catch on fire as soon as i put the pieces together :)  any input is appreciated.

bad, bad psu in those cases. I wouldn't trust either for a second. I'll suggest getting a Xigmatek Asgard II case and a Corsair CX500 500W PSU instead.

you should be able to run WOW just fine with that CPU.

I'd suggest paying an extra $1.00 for get a 2x2GB kit, dual channel will see a 5% increase.

For GPU, I'd suggest a HD 6870 or GTX 560, both run about $180 +/- $5

I second that whole-heartedly. I wouldn't trust a case with a built-in PSU for a second.

What's your overall budget? I could probably piece together a build or two together that would suit your needs.
