    A dual core cpu for gaming is nothing I would recommend. Also, you won't be able to run wow on high settings with intergrated graphics card.

    Where do you live? I could look up prices on online stores for you.

    EDIT: I'll look it up tomorrow, I'm going to bed now!

    I'm hoping to get that then add to it, so to speak . Would maybe AMD LLANO FM1 A4 QUAD CORE CPU 4GB RAM USB3.0 HDMI Gaming Barebones PC [A4-36704GBGBB] from Overclock.co.uk that do the job? I'm from England . thanks

    If you're just looking to play wow, that would do just fine. Although you would need to buy a graphic card for it. I'd recommend this one, it's cheap and gives you a lot of performance fper £. http://www.overclock.co.uk/product/A...ame_41445.html

    That one is much better indeed. Though the computer seems to come without a Harddrive and Dvd drive. More RAM is not needed, though I would highly recommend you to buy a graphic card.

    Here's what you need to buy on the side for it to work.

    Harddrive: http://www.overclock.co.uk/product/W...OEM_36179.html

    DVD Drive: http://www.overclock.co.uk/product/S...OEM_40200.html

    Graphic Card: http://www.overclock.co.uk/product/A...ame_40377.html

    Your amazing i was scared earlier to actually build one :P (or semi build one now) bought the dummy guide on my kindle, seemed to be out of date, but cleared up a mass of confusion. So I work that one out at around £500 roughly without the operating system, I think ill need a 64 bit windows 7 on top of that to fully utilize my RAM won't I? Thank GOD I didn't go to PC world >.< they'd of robbed me blind hehe.

    Aye, you need x64 to be able to use more than 4gb. If you stumble upon any issues, just Pm me and I'll see what I can do to help.

    By the looks of that picture it includes a Front fan, two fans on the side and hopefuly one in the back. But if they don't include that, you could just order it afterwards.
