Additional Comments:

Here is what I currently put together using pcpartpicker. Again WoW is what I play majority of the time with D3, and possible photo editing in the the future. I download a lot of crap, watch movies on it yada yada yada. I want an SSD for boot drive and to put WoW and a couple other programs on it. Not gonna go SLI so 750W should be the max PSU needed to power the 660 Ti.

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($77.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card ($299.99 @ Amazon)

Hey man, sorry for lack of response as of yet, with worldwide members it sometimes takes a while :) 
Build looks fine if a little ott for WoW :) 
maybe up the card to a 670 if you stretch the budget?
monitors fine too, I play at the same res so unless you felt the need to go x3 on the screens don't worry :)

Thanks moto been awhile since Ive seen you but then again Im not on like I was last year.

I thought the 660 Ti would already be OP for WoW

Im debating on a 128GB SSD but I think it would be way too much for me

Going to go to a Micro Center store to get a couple of the items for the great discounts

We all have lifestuff outide the Pc room hehe, some things are more demanding than others though :) 
the 660 will be sufficient but I was thinking of longevity, and the Ssd won't help WoW, just boot up and load WoW faster, I don't have an Ssd yet and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything

Yeah I know I just hate slow loading times but I have thought about not getting it as well its not like its going to kill me but also having windows load almost instantly is more then worth it
