WoW / TESO Budget Build (Beginner)

Approximate Purchase Date: October

Budget Range: $500-650 Before Rebates / After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: MMO Gaming (The Elder Scrolls Online and World of Warcraft mainly), Writing (Novels and Screenplays), IM Chatting / Social Media.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: /

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Tennessee

Parts Preferences: Would prefer a Quad-Core CPU so that it will last me a few years and I ussually have a lot of things running at once.

Overclocking: Not sure what this is so no.

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 or if you're upgrading please state what you'd want to get)

I don't know much about moniters but just any decent widescreen.

Additional Comments: I'm a writer and heavy RPG gamer though I do a lot of my gaming on X-box. I love MMOs like WoW and TESO so I'm looking for a budget build to play those comfertably.

While gaming, I typically play in Window Mode and have music playing, an IM Chat open, and firefox going all at the same time.

I don't know if this will change anything but I will NOT be playing any kind of fps or heavy graphic game like Battlefield 3 or Crysis, I play those on my X-box. This computer will strictly be used for MMOs.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:

Looking for a decent computer to upgrade so that I can keep my laptop strictly for school.
