Default WoW PC - To build or buy?

Hello all,

*this is my first post*

So here is my delima. I have always (4 computers) built my computers from ground up. I have never ordered a dell,hp,etc... My wife has decided that she wants to play WoW with me and use the computer for web surfing and other various things.

A link to the newegg build (not final just threw some stuff in there)
Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg

Or I could purchase a dell. How are dells in modifying their components? If I bought a dell is it pretty straight forward on switch out vid cards and or adding more ram?

Thanks,
Lammy

Its going to be both cheaper, and give you a better machine by building your own. You can easily put together a WoW rig for under 500 bucks.

Yea I agee with you. I have always built my own pcs. Granted the machine I linked is a bit beefy for a internet browsing/ wow box but I would rather have it be a little much than not enough.

Any ideas on the build?

Not sure about the board. Its using a pretty old chipset, should probably spend a bit more and get the p35-ds3l.
