This is my wishlist:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116231

Video: XFX PVT73GUGD3 GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150182

Ram: Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144151

I really want to get this cpu and Video, can anyone help me to find a good mobo and othe stuff that I need in order for me to play some cool games such as world of warcraft and battlefield?

Trust me you will thank me cause i had that intel and it sucked and only lasted me 2 months then died. All my computers are now AMD.

And if you get that cpu you can't get ddr2 memory.

With a limited budget, you will be best off going with an AMD processor... If you can increase your budget to get a Core 2 Duo, then go Intel.

If you can't increase the budget, then look into AMD socket AM2 processors. They also use DDR2 memory, and all you would need to change with your build is the CPU & Motherboard. The AMD 3500+ will outperform the Intel CPU you linked, and it will also run cooler, and use less power. Get yourself a good Power Supply as well.

Problem is with the C2D and your $600 budget is that with the E6300, and the GPU & RAM you selected, your ballpark is about $150 left for Motherboard and PSU... and the PSU is NOT an area you want to take a short-cut.... You will kick yourself if you lose hardware because you saved $50 on a PSU.

Yeah, with an E6300, I bet you could manage to fit it in an $800 budget...
