I just sold a painting i did and have some spare cash , i want to build a rig for my gf and friends when they come over to play games with , i have a new rig as well so i will be able to recycle an optical drive, a 450 W psu and a 1tb HDD and i have a keyboard and mouse etc and i get a student discount on windows so that is already taken care of .

After tax i will have about 500$ can't go over by more than 10$

Only games we will play is wow and league of legends, maybe some rift and dc online in the future.

i don't care about ultra or even high settings i have a 7870 in my new rig and only play at high because it looks better to me .

Just want 40+fps if possible out of this rig i was thinking along the lines of

CPU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

MOBO: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Case: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Am i forgetting anything? i am exhausted but i think that covers it all.

Only concerns i have are is the ram ok ? i know apu's are ram fiends and is that case not practical? I was looking at the Mini towers will these parts fit in one of those ?

And sorry for the wall but is there a monitor you recommend ? i don't want a 1920x1080 it'll reduce the performance any monitor 19" and up if you know of a good one ! I have a 32 inch toshiba tv will that work? It's resolution is 1366x something around there!

You guys always give sound advice thanks in advance !!

Everything looks good, I would look towards LG, as they are very reliable, I am currently using one from 2010, and that TV will work, you will need a HDMI port on the tv, and a HDMI cord to go with it, or a VGA Cable & port on the TV. As for fitting everything, It should fit as, you don't have anything listed that could cause a clearance issue, like a GPU, or very tall heatsink.

It should be fine, and yes, WoW with the newer releases, should take advantage of added speed, as for League, it being a F2P game, might not take advantage of it, but game performance should increase regardless.
