Default Could you help me out?

I haven't built a computer of my own since I was 12, I'm now 18. I'm looking for a build to play WoW, listen to music, and watch the occasional video. I'm not looking for anything spectacular obviously since WoW isn't really graphically demanding. My laptop I'm is extremely messed up and I'm currently running Ubuntu on it now, and having a heck of a time getting WoW to work.

Well, WoW, has a very old graphics engine so any ATI 5770 (or even less) or equivalent NVIDIA Card should suffice. But always go with a bit more, just incase you want to play more graphic demanding game.

If you tell us a budget then we could build something from you...

Gaming PC Build:

NZXT Phantom | Intel i5-3570k 3.4Ghz | Asus P8Z77-V | CoolerMaster V6 GT | Ripjaws
8GB 1600mhz | EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2GB | Corsair HX750 Watt |SB 1.5TBHDD
7200 RPM+WD 500GB 7200RPM | OCZ Vetex 3 120GB SSD | Lite-On 24x Reader/Writer/Burner Drive |
Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse | Razer Lycosa Gaming Mouse | Logitech G930 Gaming Headset

Woops, kind of started ranting and forgot that part.
Anyways, I'd like to keep it between 4 and 500 but could go up to 600.
