Default Gaming Build Help

Hey guys, I recently have been looking around, in complete disarray as to what I should get for a new computer, primarily to capture HD footage and to play WoW. Im not good with picking parts, but I can assemble a computer and install OS and all of that, just need help with what to get. I dont necessarily have a price range, but considering I dont really work, somewhere between 700-900 dollars would be nice. I live in Canada, so I can use newegg. Just for comparison, here is what I currently am using..

intel core 2 quad cpu 2.66Ghz
6 gigs of ram
ati radeon hd 4800

Also, I already have a good keyboard, mouse, and monitor along with sound system, so only the computer aspect is really needed.

Thanks a ton,

Sorry about that, my power supply and case are not even worth salvaging, I'd rather pay the extra money to get a decent one, this stuff is like worste than current stock stuff. I am using windows 7, unless theres a problem with that.
