Default First time builder, help?

Hello all! I was told this is the place to be if your lost and need direction so here I am. First off I've never built a computer, but Im excited and ready to learn. First off Im only building one because mine finally gave out. I only play one game and thats wow. My only goal in this build is to have 50+ fps in game with the highest graphics settings, thats it. Will this work or is it a bit overkill? Let me know where going smaller or going bigger would be better thank you.

Your 1st link, to the Asus DVD Burner, is the only link that is working. As Sean asked, what is your budget?

Links work fine, copy location and take out second http.

If all your going to be doing is playing WoW i think a HAF and 1TB drive is a bit extreme. I would also go with a 1gb 460 instead.

I play WoW alot and I have:

HAF 922 tower
6gigs of RAM
1.5tb HD
Radeon 5770 graohics card(over clocked)
Sony DVD burner

and with that stuff I just mentioned I easily get 60fps with Vsync on and sometimes well over 100 or so with it off.

A 1tb harddrive is NOT overkill because you know how Blizzard loves their patches! That game eats HD space as you probably know as well as I do.

I have a 64gb SSD and it was just fine for WoW. If he wanted some insurance a 320GB drive would be plenty for JUST WoW.

Yes, if he played JUST WoW..once you start loading other games and stuff 320g would be almost gone before you knew it..
