Approximate Purchase Date: July

Budget Range: $550-$660 with OS included

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming,Internet,school work

Parts Not Required: monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I live in Alaska so some website with low shipping rates?

Country: USA( happy memorial day)

Parts Preferences: reliable brands

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: IDK

Monitor : IDK

Additional Comments: as you can see, imon an extremely tight budget. Please only recommend parts that you would use in your budget build( example: brands you know have a high failure rate or something like that.) I'm only really looking to play WoW/D3 on med/high settings with hit fps and I'm not looking to play BF3 on ultra settings. If you really have to go over the price range then that's fine as long as its not by much.
