    WoW at ultra with dual monitors won't be possible at a 900$ budget... Anyway try something out yourself @ www.ibuypower.com - Google things, read things up.. We can help you but we can't build a configuration for everyone.. Also where do you live, and what components that you have now can be re-used?

    Right well, try something out at the site I said. For 900 dollars incl. sound/printer/monitor/mouse/keyboard as well won't get you a PC to run on Ultra.

    That is what I could gather fast on Newegg.com. Since you live in the US, you can probably find a computer store that can make you a little bit better with their bulk prices but that should be what you get or around for that price. (Quite amazing compared to Canada)

    I would still try to get a Quad core over a Dual core, even if it costs a little bit more.

    Setup that was recommended looks pretty decent for your budget... However, as already mentioned, you should pay a little bit extra and get a quad core. May not make a huge difference right now, but it definitely will later on.

    You could... Get the cheapest one which would be this Athlon and it would only be $10 more than the dual core that was recommended:

    You could get a mid-range Phenom for $150:

    or go all out with the fastest AMD cpu available for $180:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103727

    My recommendation is go all out so you don't have to worry about upgrading your CPU for many years to come.
