    Is there a way i could be able to build a computer for 200-300 dollors that will run world of warcraft with 40-50 fps with no drops. I would like AMD and an AM2 board so i can upgrade later i have a IDE Dvd rom drive but i dont know if it works. Any help would be great thank you
    I will be over clocking and updating in a couple months:)

    I really don't see you overclocking to much in that price range. You can make a OK PC in that range now but most lower end parts don't offer much head room.

    I reckon you are going about it the wrong way man, if you buy a whole system for 300 bucks then it is not a good foundation to upgrade on.

    the system damulta spec'd for you is good for the price but isn't all that upgradable. What you need is a decent mb to start with.

    Spend the extra 50 - 100 for a good mb and then you can chuck all the cheapo parts in there for now and upgrade later...

    good mb
    cheap cpu, ram, etc....

    The mb is the part you will be keeping so it needs to be half decent... there is no point putting a 6000 cpu in a $50 mb and expecting good results....
