Build your own

Hello, i am looking to buy a build your own computer. Wanted to ask a couple questions from the wow community first though.

-Where should i buy one? online or at a store? i heard places like best buy are a no-go because they charge a crazy amount and have bad reputation (read alot of reports where the computer had issues closely after the warranty ended.)

-What graphics card would i need to play in highest detail + record videos for youtube without lagging at all?

-What processor would i need?

-Thinking atleast a 500G hard drive, would i need more than that?

any other things that need to be good quality? im not a computer wiz but to my understanding thats what the game depends on.

Many thanks in advance.
