If you are not planning to overclock, downgrade the cpu to i5-2320. It will be perfectly fine for playing WoW and minecraft at max while recording.

You can save a bit of $ by downgrading RAM to 4gb. Most people would recommend 8gb just because you can get it inexpensively, but since you will never surpass 4gb memory usage playing WoW or minecraft, 4gb should be fine.

I think you are spending a bit too much on the graphics cards. To run WoW or minecraft at 60+ fps, you just need something like a single radeon 6870. I would probably go 7850 for a bit of comfort. This will also allow you to save money by getting 500W psu.

Motherboard you can switch to z68 if you are not using Ivy Bridge cpu

If you are not planning to overclock, ditch the cpu cooler
