Default Looking to buy/build a new rig

Hey guys,

I'm looking to buy a new rig for as cheap as possible. I'll be purchasing all parts from www.msy.com.au as I am in Australia.

I am building this P.C SPECIFICALLY to run World of Warcraft and the new expansion - I have no other purposes with this P.C other than to play WoW on it.

I was wondering if somebody could help me with some specs that would be perfect to run this game at a high level.

I'm not looking to spend more than $1000 - only after parts as I have the screen etc.

I'm not very knowledgable with P.C's so bare with me lol

Thanks,

Hi, could you tell me your monitor's native resolution?

I can make a quick list of the other parts but the GPU depends on what your monitor's res is:

CPU- E7200 - 159
Motherboard: MSI P45 Neo3-FR - 145
RAM: 4GB kit 2x2GB G.Skill-NT - 80
Unfortunately they don't have a big selection of PSUs.
Power supply: You'll just have to pick out something decent looking when you're at the store. ~450W+
Case: Again, make your own decision when you're there. Must fit ATX motherboards.
Disk drive: Make sure it's SATA, not IDE.
Hard drive: SATA II and enough space for your needs.
Graphics card: 9600GT, Any brand will do, even Generic will be exactly the same card, except the warranty won't be as good.
