Go out to Bestbuy or whatever and pick up a system with a nice CPU from a manufacturer with a good reputation (Acer, Dell, etc will do fine). Ignore the Graphics Card and RAM. Chances are this will cost about $500 and come with a 20+ inch monitor, great! This is dirt cheap.Next, go buy a GeForce 9600/9800 or your ATI equivalent if you're a wierdo. Pick up about 4gb of Dual Channel ram (fastest your computer can support). Combined, these will probably cost you less than $150. Oh hey look at that... you have a great gaming rig for $750 and you didn't have to nervously smother thermal paste on your CPU, worry about one tenth of the compatibility issues, or drop loads of cash on a new copy of Windows.Of course, you could also just buy a Mac, which WoW runs excellently on as well :)BTW: Everybody needs a Logitech Clearchat Pro USB... it is the greatest headset for WoW I've ever used--absolutely flawless, and counts as it's own Sound-Device so you can run Ventrilo through your headset and your game audio through system speakers.
