I'll ask before someone else does.

What's your budget?

for world of warcraft id say a computer with 1GB of ram, windows XP, min of 2.5Ghz processor (dual core or otherwise) and 256mb graphics card. you could probably get a good enough setup for less than £400
PHP + MYSQL, ASP.Net + C# with SQL, WCF, Python, XHTML + CSS, HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery, Flash + ActionScript 3, XML, SVG.
