What Resolution do you play at for starters and i think the best deals can often be found right here. Just go to the OCC Marketplace and do a little research on certain parts that catch your eye.

Considering your requirements and budget I'm hard pressed to come up with a bad butt gaming rig but with a little tweaking this would be in no way a slouch. On the contrary it could handle all you can throw at it but beware long WOW your machine will be getting pretty hot even at stock speed so you may want to consider a good case and upgrade your CPU cooler from the factory HS that comes with the CPU


Combo deal

You'd be hard pressed to find better components at there price points IMHO


$823 with shipping and tax after rebates at the Egg.


If you plan to go with a dual GPU setup at some point you may want to consider an ATI card because SLI is not supported on that motherboard consequently Nvidia would be a bad choice.


In that case try this:


XFX HD-487A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

Item #: N82E16814150352



XFX warranties are outstanding.

$15 less the total cost after rebates also.


Keep us posted and we can walk you through the building process etc.

Good Luck

Why I have a hard time responding to your post ...too lazy to look up the exchange rates and see what is available to you. Given what you said above, the computer build posted above that should be more than enough for WoW. With pricing range though you should be able to build i7 though ...unless pc parts are radically overpriced where you live. If that is the case, then the Phenom II 940 (for OCing) or 955 (no OC) are other valid contenders.

find a guy on this forum named hrdnrg he lives over in uk and is extremely knowledgeable and experenced...yo hardnrg yer comrad needs you...!!
