Hey guys, so i just bought my new computer rig, its a budget build for around $650 bucks. I know the video card isnt that good, and i could upgrade other stuff alot more but i am on a budget so i couldn't spend a whole lot. What is your guy's thoughts/opinions on my new rig? Heres the list:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CASE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... COOLER

i am using my old HD and DVD Burner/Drive from my old computer. Also I mainly play World of Warcraft and i think this computer will be just fine, i plan on eventually upgrading in the future because right now i just don't have the money for everything to be top notch. I think this build is a decent one for 650, what are your thoughts? Any suggestions for future purchases? Thanks

System looks great, only thing I would change is the GPU, the 640 is decent, but it's not the greatest either.

However I understand you have a rather tight budget, the GPU will run WoW just fine.

CPU is a great performer and is still a very capable part. I use one myself.

2500k is old. Take a 3570k if you want to overclock.
If you do not want to overclock. Take xeon 1230V2

here you can see how fast xeon is. big bang for the $

MoBo is bad. take extreme 4 or better one.
Id take a better case too..
