Default $850 gaming build

Hey guys, my friend wants me to build him a $850 gaming pc. He plays WoW and I guess some steam games, but nothing intense. I think this pc will be largely wasted on him, but he's offering me $150 to build it for him so I'm not complaining.

what do you guys think of the guild so far? Will this all work? Looking good? Comments? Concerns? Thoughts? More question marks? ????

Get this combo. You'll just add a video card and an OS.

Looks fine to me, but you can shave a few bux from it by getting a non-"K" edition Intel CPU if he doesn't intend to overclock, and that chip is plenty fast at stock speeds. The case is a little overkill as well (I own it) but if he doesn't mind that, it's a wonderful case - I LOVE it, personally, but I use all of it's space.

Nice build. Get a better Hard Drive though. It'll be worth it.
