Since this is my first comp i need to make sure everything is compatible and if you have any suggestions on wht i should change feel free to leave some feedback, and Also pls recommend a video card that will match my motherboards in the respected price range of $120 for the video card.

PSU: to be determined with video card

I found all of the products from newegg and the hard drive on tiger direct.
The game I play is World of Warcraft and want to run it with at least 40+ FPS.
So please give me your suggestion on a video card, motherboard, CPU or anything else i could use to save money and still get great performance. The most i can spend is around $400 so keep that in mind.

If you will buy a llano, then you should plan on using the excellent integrated graphics, and no more.
If you want more graphics power, then a discrete graphics card will cancel out any savings on the cpu and you would be better off with a cheap sandy bridge cpu and a good discrete graphics card.

Yeah you are right, but i would lose out on multitasking if i bought a dual core. If someone has the llano and play wow please leave some feedback on how good it plays it and what processor you put in it. Don't forget to add some feedback even if you don't have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
