Default $700 Newegg Budget Build

Hey guys, this is going to be my first build. I have 700$ to spend on a PC from newegg, not including shipping. I already have the OS (Windows 7 32/64bit), monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I would really appreciate some help picking out parts. The best piece I need is the processor, I'll be running many processor hogging programs. The video card does not have to be the best, but still decent. If you come up with a build that goes a little over 700$ and has like some mail in rebates that would be fine. Thanks.

Thanks so much! Do you possibly know what that system can run WoW at? I play WoW in my spare time.

No problem.

Pretty darn close, if not THE highest.

I don't play but it should max it out.

Thanks again.

I forgot to ask, does this come with all the wires and stuff? Do I need a screwdriver? Also, what is a "fermi" video card?

This comes with everything you need and you will need a screwdriver.

Nvidia has given the architecture an internal name of Fermi, after the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, a key developer of the nuclear reactor, who also gave his name to the Fermi acceleration mechanism in astrophysics. Nvidia claims that the Fermi architecture is the next major step in its line of GPUs following the G80.

No problem. Post some pics when you get it built.

If I've helped rep would be appreciated.

Can I replace Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V &#47; EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply with CompUSA.com | ULT-LSP750 | Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply ?

I found out I'm getting a 100$ gift card to compusa.

Also, why not get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130591 over http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187116 ?

Isn't it better and same price? Sorry for all these questions.

I wouldn't recommend that PSU. PSU's are the one place you need to be the most careful.

The Sparkle card has a lifetime warranty which is why I chose it but you can go with either and be happy.

If you want one from Comp USA go with this.
