$40 (bundle w/ rebate) - Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 LGA 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Motherboard
$150 (after rebate) - XFX AMD Radeon HD 6870
$35 (after rebate) - Antec Three Hundred Case
$50 - Antec EarthWatts EA-650

  1. Yes, shouldn't have any issues.
  2. The HDD have gotten more expensive
    due to the flood in Japan so if you need the computer NOW
    you'll have to modify your budget
    Anyway, I would prefer a WD Black over a barracuda
    wait for the HDD market return to normal
  3. that should be fine, the 500 GB HDD is going to be $90, not $50 however.

    you can split the difference by getting a i5-2400, which should be plenty of CPU for WOW.

    FYI, the flooding is in Thailand, not Japan.
