I think I might have the Build I want.

CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor 129.99

MotherBoard: MSI Z77A-G43 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard 119.99

Memory: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) 40.99

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB 3.5IN 16MB Cache SATA3 54.99

Video Card: XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 199.99

Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply 69.99

OS: Windows 8 69.99

I have a few Questions. Do I need a sound card to have sound with this mother board? But most importantly are these parts compatible with each other, like when they get here will I be able to build it, and it will all work together? I think that's it, I really appreciate it.

Assuming that we are playing WoW in these following settings:-
1920x1080 resolution
All ultra, except shadows set to high
DirectX 11 mode, WoW 64-bit client
Multisampling 1x, Anisotropic Filtering Trilinear
Playing in a 25-man raid / crowded cities. Anywhere else? Let's just say high enough FPS
** Build 3: Give me a pretty good system just under 1k

Note: If you want the capacity to run SLi / CrossFireX with the Intel i5 CPU, you will have to upgrade the motherboard to one of the recommended Z77 motherboards.

Note: Many motherboards only come with 2 SATA cables, and some SSDs do not come with an extra SATA cable. Check the motherboard and SSD content details, and ensure you have enough SATA cables.
