    Hey guys,

    Basically my current PC runs the only game I play, World of Warcraft, poorly. I have a poor framerate even with the settings on low and with the graphic enhancement in the new exansion I'm guessing it'll get worse. I also have a dream of maybe trying some titles a little more ambitious like MW2 and SW:ToR.

    Anyway I've managed to save myself £600, or $900 for my friends across the pond and I was wondering if that sounds enough to build a system that will run WoW on max settings without a hiccup but at the same time leaving room to allow the system to be updated with even better hardware as more money becomes available through my new job.

    I'd appreciate it if anyone could advise me on a system for £600 or less I could buy to match my criteria or even better point me in the direction of an even cheaper system that would play WoW flawlessly for the time being.

    I don't know if this info will help (cos I'm a PC newb) but I already have a "22 widescreen monitor.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
