    Lots of help building my own computer

    Ok to start of pretty much new to building my own computer i dont really know too much about them, i do know the basics but not 100% what all im going to need to build my own and what exactly would be the best to get the best bang for my buck.

    my budget is 300-400 dollars
    im trying to build a computer than can run WoW well without trouble hopefully on ultra with 30+ fps but not needed

    my current computer: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...odTypeId=12454

    Im hoping to be able to reuse whatever is possible to save as much money as i can

    i bought a graphics card for it already and kinda basing the build around that this is it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127709

    And like i said i dont know much about computers nor have i ever built one on my own but im up to the task, any help/guides/etc. is very much appreciated im just trying to find what parts im gunna need a price for it since i dont really know whats good and what isnt. if i missed anything and need to post more or need to give more info just say, sorry.

    in advance, Thank you all for the help

    What is not to understand about the stickies. Some even take the time to make pre-built machines and keep them up to date. All you have to do is copy-paste it.

    And the components in that computer are really old, if you want to buy something new, you'll have to start from scratch. Except for the ODD and HDD.

    and re-use my HDD and Ram i already have and GPU that i already have purchased would that be all the needed parts to build one and would they work together?

    Part list link doesn't work.

    Another good mobo and a little cheaper after MIR.

    Corsair 200R - A sweet looking case, also cheaper after MIR.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139018

    Cooler Master Hyper 212+ - Probably one of the best "bang for you buck" cpu coolers on the market. Another MIR item though :P.

    If you live around a Microcenter you can get the Celeron G550 for $35.

    I don't think the G530 can be overclocked. As such, he doesn't need to spend the ~$20 for an aftermarket cooler.

    Just so you don't get your hopes too far up, the 300-400 range is for medium settings at acceptable framerates

    I'd go with the AMD Trinity CPU's, like an A8 5600K or A6 5400K
