Start with an E2/3/5xxx. They overclock well with minimal effort and you can find em cheap.
Check out Corsair XMS2 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145241 for memory.

Thats $120 after rebate with 2 big components out of the way.

UD3P is nice mobo,
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-358-_-Product

e8400
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-037-_-Product

great overclocker if thats what you are interested in as well btw.

8800 GT
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...&Tpk=8800%20GT

memory
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-269-_-Product


this adds up to around 500 ish. add a case, 500-600.

or maybe a 750i

maybe http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-033-_-Product



maybe around those. but i think if you get a e8400 plus a 8800 you should be fine for WoW..

I would say you should go for an AM3 build. It will be faster for the money spent and the socket will be around for a long while.

I know very little about AMD, as I have never had one and experimented with it. But I've heard good things about the PII. I'm sure the 640 won't disappoint when playing WoW.

My sig rocks games equal to or greater than WoW...

60+ FPS Guild Wars
58 FPS LotRo
34 FPS Crysis

and I feel certain you could build it now for 60% of what I built mine for.

However, don't be afraid of AMD... they are making some rockin' gaming equipment.
