Approximate Purchase Date: This Week

Budget Range: 500-800 (before rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Heroic WoW 10 man, Skyrim) Movies, Surfing

Parts Not Required: OS, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Country:USA

Parts Preferences: Intel 2500k, I'm a nvidia fan, but open to AMD graphics if its better price for performance
Overclocking: Maybe, well into the future if I do though

SLI or Crossfire: Dont plan on it, wow doesnt need this

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Wondering if I'll need a new CPU Fan/heatsink with the stock i5 2500k and etc. Just let me know what you guys are thinking. Also, I have a 500gb HDD, if I dont need to buy one. If I can afford it I'd prefer a SSD for my OS and a new HDD for my Games and etc just to start fresh. I also dont much about MOBO BIOS settings and etc, so need to have one thats going to work well out of the box. 8gigs of memory or more as well.

Thanks!

Stock i5 heat sink is fine just don't overclock with it.

Nvidia seems to work better with blizzard games or so ive read

Look into a 560ti... And if your near a microcenter they have good deals on CPU/ mobo combo

I just got an HEC psu for 30 bucks 585 watt and good reviews from newegg. Spend the money saved on a GPU

The only suggestion I have is not to buy that HEC PSU.
Although it is not as terrible as most would make it out to be .
I would use it only with a low power draw system.
I have it and refuse to use the pcie connector as it comes with only one.
1 6 pin pcie connector on a nearly 600 watt PSU is not terribly convincing of reliability.

From what I have read online Intel and Nvidia parts work best with Wow by quite a margin.
