Default Need some help with a build.

Hello guys! I've been frequenting the forums the last couple days trying to get some setup ideas, but really haven't accomplished much except get myself confused. Here's an idea of what I'll be doing. Mainly Wow with the occasional Source mod. Some multitasking, but nothing too extensive.

I would prefer SLI capabilities, after I get the build off the ground I'd like to grab another monitor. I've got 32 bit windows, but from what I've read here, I'll just grab Windows 7. I Will be in need of a monitor.

All in all I was hoping to fall within the 600-700 dollar range.

Thanks for the help in advance!

6-700 range screams AMD phenom 720. My internet is slow today so ill tell you what you should get
Biostar TA790gx and Phenom 720 combo - about 220
4gb gskill PI black ddr800 clk4 - 55
XFX gtx260 - 180
lg 22x optical dvd combo - about 20
storm scout case - 90
640gb hdd - 75
corsair 650tx - 90

that should be about it, sorry i couldn't get links, you can search on newegg and get them anyway. With rebates and combo deals it will easily be under 700.

You would only need an aftermarket heatsink if you plan on overclocking.

All the help is very much appreciated, guys. I'll go with the "WaW setup" and try to find someone to take it off my hands. Thanks
