Hey I'm building a computer for my uncle and I need some advice. It will mainly be used for playing WoW. Would this build be adequate to play on high settings? My budget is only $550

$180 - Intel Core i5 2500K LGA 1155 Boxed Processor
$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
$20 - 4GB (2x2GB) Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory
$50 - Seagate Barracuda 500GB Internal SATA Desktop Hard

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

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.
