Talking Any advice?

I want to build a NEW computer to enhance my World of Warcraft experience. I don't know much about computer hardware so I'm looking for any advice on what parts to get to make this dream machine. Of course there will be lots of other things I will be doing with my contraption (I play around with torrent files). So thank you in advance and I hope I learn a lot about computers from this website.

First of all let me be the first to welcome you to this site!

Ok, we need to know a few things here. the biggest thing is what is your price range. the next is not so much of a big deal, but still somehting that will help, and taht is where do you want to buy your parts from? i ask that because if you do not live in the US, sending links from Newegg.com will do you no good.

also, if you have any ideas of what you want already (like a processor, video card etc) if you could list them. That way we can either say "yeah, thats a good card" or "no, your better off getting this"

Well WoW doesn't have very high system requiremenmts so this will be more than enough to play it, and is somewhat future proof witha budget in mind.

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115004 $222

GPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143049 $93 after rebate

Mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142 $140

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145566 $111

PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341004 $160 after rebate

Case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112040 $120

HDD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148140 $90

Total without rebates= $1010.95 w/out shipping
With rebates= $935.95 w/out shipping

Well they make a 8800GTS which would handle WoW without a sweat as well and its $360 with a rebate

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130071

EDIT- and that 8800GTX is also the fastest one out there they make ones that are much cheaper

EDIT 2- Also if all your looking to do is play WoW and browse the internet you won't need to spend anywhere near 2 grand for a pc...but if you want you can
