I can find something, but I have to say, its REALLY easy to build a computer, and we can set you up with parts, and walk you through how to do it.

The link for the processor says 259. Anyways, if you want a 500GB HD, then, the best one arround is Seagate.

That thing is a monster.

Edit: Sorry, link was to ATA.

Nice looking spec there.

The Samsung Spinpoint P120S series is easily the best out there, so grab two of the 250GB versions and you'll be sorted.

What's the point in having two optical drives? Waste of money really. Get a single decent one such as the Pioneer DVR-111DBK, which is excellent and extremely cheap.

Don't forget a couple of 120mm or 80mm fans - Sharkoon 2000 120mm fans are the best around.

The rest of the spec looks great/

Fans come with the case, or you can get water. I say stick to the case stuff. Get new fans if you want some color, but that case stuff should be fine.

Noone wants to hit their max. Besides, this is only for WoW. This computer is going to kick that games ass.
