This computer smokes one of my friends' computer and his plays WoW flawlessly. His is a system with an Athlon XP 2800+ and a 9800pro with 512mb of memory and almost no hdd space left :P With what I put together you get 1gb of ram in dual-channel mode, a graphics card with 256mb of GDDR3 memory which is the fastest and 256-bit memory interface which is great! Also a case with great cooling, made by a trusted brand, and a nice power supply!
This is officially the best budget PC I have ever put together :P If you get it then tell me how great it is
I would not mind pulling some money together to get this thing as my first PC
