Approximate Purchase Date: don't know, have lots of research to do first.

Budget Range: $800-$1000, Rebates aren't important

System Usage from Most to Least Important: the system will be used for gaming but I'm not playing hardcore games that require top notch specs., primarily just world of Warcraft (nothing special)

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: doesn't matter, saving money is good =)

Country: USA, GA

Parts Preferences: intel mb with intel processor

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (but I don't think WoW needs this) most likely no

Monitor Resolution: ill just use what i have now-dell 17" E177FP

Additional Comments: needs to support direct x, microATX board will work just fine, video card must be ATI. any helpful websites where i can read will be very helpful(I don't mind doing research)

Check the $800 build in my sig, around $700 without the OS, which you already have. Should be great for your requrement.

I'd also suggest a full HD monitor with the $$ you have left. A decent one costs $130-140.
