Default New Gaming PC

Hey guys haven't posted in a while, but it's time for a new PC build

So I'm expecting this build to be towards November-December time. I know it's better to post at the time you are building but I wanted to get a general idea of what I am building.

Ok, my budget is around 600-700$. I have keyboard, mouse, and OS (Windows 7 Ultimate), and Monitor. So all I need is the components of the PC itself. My only concern is that since this monitor is VGA wouldn't I need a VGA video card ? If that's the case, and the video card isn't that good cause of the limitation of the monitor can you fit in a good monitor with a good graphics card? Btw the resolution is 1440x900.

Alright so what I am hoping to run with this build is World of Warcraft on Ultra settings. Also I want it to be able to run Cataclysm on Ultra. (next wow expansion)

Alright, I think that's all

THANKS

Since it will be a month or two there's not a lot of use in pulling up combos (which will be the way to go since you are on a budget). I will see what I can find that's available right now, but they won't last anywhere near that long.

* AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (Thuban) 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor (Model: HDT55TFBGRBOX)
* GIGABYTE Socket AM3 AMD 870 Chipset SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard (Model: GA-870A-UD3)
* Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Model: KVR1333D3K2/4GR)
* Antec Nine Hundred + EA650 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 650W Power Supply

Combo Price: $478.99

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
$139.99 w/$15 MIR

Newegg.com - ASUS Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners
$18.99

Graphics card comes with a DVI to VGA adapter.

Thanks, Trotter. And do you think that Graphics Card will run WoW on ultra?

I love the case btw.

A 5570 can play SC2 on ultra. WoW is less intensive than that.

Oh something I thought of while browsing the internet, does that motherboard bring a network card so that I can connect wireless with a router in my house?

It has onboard LAN, but not wireless. You will have to use an adapter of some sort (PCI, USB, PCI-E) to connect.

USB is normally the cheapest, but not the most reliable.

Newegg.com - ENCORE ENLWI-G(2) IEEE 802.11b/g TPCI Standard Universal Add-in card Compliant with PCI 2.0 Wireless Adapter Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates Supports wireless data encryption with 64/128-bit WEP standard for security, Su
I think this is the one I have in my mother's pc. Works great, even on Windows 7. Uses Realtek drivers. Do NOT use the CD included.

WoW should run fine, smooth and pretty with that video card.

I haven't found any games that don't run good with it.
I run a machine with 9gb ram and Intel Core i7 @ 3.20ghz and the Radeon hd5770, I absolutely love it.
