    Hah dang bro, yeah i agree with everyone else here, a good new computer build would be awesome. I don't know if its glare but is there dust on the fan above the CPU? There are some people here who have posted some threads on building a new computer for WoW when cAtaclysm comes out. Check out those threads, they even link the parts they are buying, they are trying to make a good affordable efficient PC. Good Luck.

    Honestly, with $600 you can get a pretty decent computer with either dell or HP. The one thing I would do is make sure to buy a different video card, but DON'T buy the upgrade from whoever you buy it from, its usually a waste of money.

    Wow really that bad huh?
    So even the case is obsolete?
    I think i should continue to save up , and instead of spending a fair amount of money for a reasonable computer, spend that little extra to actually get something worth playing on..? what do you guys recon?

    The case will work as in the screw holes are still in the same place but it doesn't look to have enough airflow for modern components.

    The drives will work but they are ultra old tech and slow as balls.

    Video is a Palit GTS450. Main display is a 24" full HD TV. Secondary display is an ACER 19" lcd at 1440x900.
