Hey, I am having a bit of trouble trying to make my first build. I was thinking about this: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/O69N
but I also need a wireless networking adapter as I cannot use wired in my room. I just would like to use the PC for mainly WoW and some games. Any advice would be great! I am not looking at Crossfiring or anything like that, just keeping it basic. Just to let you know I am in Australia as well.

Changed the HDD to a cheaper, better one. The one you listed was a 5400rpm, while the Caviar Blue is a 7200rpm.
Grabbed a cheaper blu-ray optical drive.
Grabbed some cheaper ram too.
Your 7850 was too expensive. Even the 7870 XT is cheaper. Switched it out for a 7870 XT, cheaper and better performance.

Hey, Thanks for the suggestions but as I noted on my Original Post I am in Australia so everything you have listed is more expensive and also it would be very much so impossible to pick up the CPU in time! haha
