Default $600 Build

I need someone to come up with a quick little build for $600, it's for a friend who just wants to play WoW and use Fraps at the same time and have good FPS. He just needs the tower, he has a monitor etc. He is going to be gaming at 1680 x 1050 so any help is appreciated.

Current Gaming Rig Running Windows 7 Ultimate
Q9450 @ 3.0GHz 1.200v // Gigabyte EP45T-UD3P // 3GB Kingston 1800Mhz DDR3 9-8-8-24-2T //
Thermaltake Toughpower 850W // 2 Raptor X's in RAID 0 // Antec Twelve Hundred Case
GTX 275 // Xigamatek Rifle 120mm // Creative XtremeGamer X-Fi

Default Re: $600 Build

Does he need a OS to? If not you could suggest the same build I'm doing for a friend.

Final thoughts on ~$600 build

You could also swap out video cards for the 4830.

If he does need a OS then you could drop down to the e5200 and a cheaper video card or something. WoW doesn't require much to run.
