Cool thanks, right in my budget too. How well would it run World Of Warcraft?

Proximon picked a nice build. If you could go to $850, I would get a gtx670, otherwise stick with the 7850 and over clock it.

That will run WoW just fine, max settings.

You can overclock with that board, but not with that processor. If you want to spend more and get the i5-2500K that would be a nice upgrade.

Yes, you can probably OC the video card, although it may not be worth it if WoW is your most demanding game.
