I have $500 to spend and I have average knowledge of desktop computers.

Looking for build ideas. Struggling making up my mind on what i should use.

I plan on playing wow primarily.

Cant decide between AMD and Intel.

Need help and I would like to run an SLI setup if thats possible.

Dont want a bad GPU either has to be good and go along with the CPU.

Would really like some builds if possible. Need ASAP

I want to be able to run wow without any lag or low frame rate on high. That is really the goal.

May need a little extra for the shipping, not sure how much more.
You can salvage a disc drive from the old computer unless it's got the IDE pasta noodle cable. If you really need one just find a $20 deal.

Chelsi's link is a good build to.
