Im trying to build the cheapest computer possible from newegg or go to my local PC recycler and try and make something that can play WoW and other low tech games. What should I be looking for?

A full computer or will you be reusing certain parts like hd, cd/dvd, keyboard, mouse etc?

EDIT: Heres a quick attempt. From what I understand wow favors cpu so you may be find with onboard. I'll have to talk to my friend later that plays wow.

Total came to $322 but theres $35 in rebates if you go for those.

Thanks. I talked to my friend, he agrees wow likes cpu. He said bringing the system to 2GB would help, that would only add about $15.

For WoW, go with a fast dual core processor and 4GB of memory. It is not easy to max it though, my rig struggles.
