So I am looking to build a PC that can run games like Guild Wars 2 on max, I'm not looking for a build that can run Battlefield 3 on max just a mid range build that can run games like Guild Wars 2 on max.

Components I do not need.

CD Rom
Hard Drive

I don't have a budget but from the build I described I want, I don't think it will cost much.

If you can provide a list of the components ect would be great.

I can make a more expensive build if you want.

This will max out guild wars.

Is 520 watts enough? Also case could be lower like corsair r200 or 300

520 will be enough. That PSU will be more than enough. Also, if you want a corsair r200 or 300 just go to newegg.com or ncix.com. I'm not going to do everything for you.
