The 550ti is a waste of space mate, I would grab a gtx460 if you can.

And get this psu.. its exactly the same OEM, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=xfx%20650 and its only $60 after rebate. And thats for SLI if its a single card just get a 500Watt psu.

you certainly don't need that much GPU for world of warcraft. you could play that game on a wii. other than that your CPU is more than enough but a powerful CPU is useful in almost every task so i wouldn't skimp. but if you want to reduce costs i would go with less video and probably go amd/ati because they are cheaper especially for mid range cards.

Check for combo deals, Especially when purchasing that many items you can save a significant amount of money and still get the items you want. Possible better products due to discounts.

You can type "combo deals" in the search bar from the newegg homepage.

You definitely need a decent GPU / CPU to handle what he wants to do in WoW. If his sole goal is to be competitive in arenas and bg's, he needs to have absolutely no slow-downs caused by his computer.

OP: I would check out the DIY Section of newegg. They have some great deals in there all with combo discounts.

I'd rather not do the DIY bs because I hand picked these parts to my liking and I don't wanna settle for something just because it's in a DIY bundle.
post #9 of 10
Link in my sig. The reality is, diy kit value is also terrible...
you can find quality ddr3-1600 kits for less than that overpriced generic kit...
Ie http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144486 costs $4 less and is rated 1700mhz

Check out Microcenter, if you have one local...I just picked up an Intel i5 2500k and MSI Z68 mobo for $250. They have combo deals for AMD as well.

You should be able to build a complete comp for ~$700, especially if you're just playing WoW. I just bought this stuff Sunday:

i5 2500k
MSI Z68 mobo
G.Skill 8GB 1600 ram
Sapphire Radeon 6950

That stuff was $570, add the rest of the components and I could finish it for probably ~$800. Obviously you don't need that much CPU/GPU so drop those down a bit to save some money.

My point is, shop around, and find the deals. Find exactly what you "need" vs. what you want, and remember, $20 adds up, QUICK. Now, if you're willing to spend $1k, you should be able to build a really nice computer. If all you're doing is playing WoW, I would spend less on the CPU/mobo/GPU and more on the monitor (within reason of course).

For reference, I used to play WoW on my Mac, and I never had an issue at all, and I was playing with an Intel Core 2 Duo (3.06Ghz) and an ATI Radeon HD 4670 (256mb) with 4GB of DDR3 ram at 1920x1080. You don't need much!
