Lightbulb Building a new Desktop, Need suggestions

I'm looking to build the most powerful desktop computer under $600 dollars. Please leave me some suggestions as far as motherboards, video cards, processors, and anything else I would need that would allow me to play online games at high quality levels. I mostly play WOW (world of warcraft, and browse the internet). Cost effectiveness is KEY! Price doesn't include monitor ( I have a nice one already, SONY WEGA)

Mmmm...very nice list! I give it a 10 out of 10 rating! A very nice system for the price, even Dell or any other goofball company can't beat that.

I also give that system a 10 out of 10, might want to think about upgrading the hardrive later on down the road.
