First timer looking to build.

Basically want to build a decent system to play Star Wars The Old Republic and WoW. Those two will probably be the only games I will be playing for quite a while but I would like to leave room to upgrade later.
Approximate Purchase Date:

Budget Range: 500-650 Before / After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, other comp will do other stuff

Parts Not Required: need everything

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: or whoever is cheaper

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Cheapest Reliable

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1600x900 preferably

Additional Comments: none

Thx in advance for any suggestions.
