Do you need the second PCI-E slot if you're going to play WoW?

same board with only one pci-e slot, cheaper

or alternatively, get the ram and mobo together

e5200 is definitely a good choice if you are not gonna move up to a quad level. With the industry leaning more favorably for multi-threaded applications in the future,(this is a fact not fiction) any dual core that is not within the budget pc build range will never get my vote. I would never buy any dual core above e5200/e5300(possibly better oc due to new stepping) simply because if you are gonna spend $150 on a processor, you are better off buying a q6600 used than go the e8400 route. Hell even a brand new q9400 is only 180 at microcenter. If you have to choose between e8400 and q9400 at less than $20 difference which would you pick? of couse it's q9400. Back to the topic. It is a great little overclocker for a budget pc build that can handle most games well with a 9800 gt. I think you have a solid build. Like someone mentioned, intel chipset with ati gpu like p45/4850 or 4830 may offer little more price/performance ratio, however your build is definitly not trailing far behind. If you like what you picked, I say go for it.

Looks good. Unless plan to SLI, should go for a mature board such as UD3P. 4830 is 110w so pick solid 500w psu such as Corsair 550vx if you don't have psu.

Seems pretty good. But the CPU seems like it might bottleneck the true power of those other parts.
