If you want to save some money just get an i5 750. No games will go beyond 4 cores anytime soon most probably.

You'll have to change mobo if you go for the i5 as well, which could save you more money too.

Not sure how much that would save by changing mobo and cpu, but you could go a SSD as well for the OS + WoW, would be crazy performance! :D

Also how much is the corsair ram? You can get g.skill ripjaw ram for cheap which has good/same performance.

CPU: Intel i5 750
MOBO: Gigabyte P55-UD3
RAM: G.Skill-Ripjaws 4GB DDR3-1600

Is what I would change too.

pccasegear.com.au is what I use now, but i don't think they do custom builds.

If you build it yourself you can just order all the parts I guess.

In all the people I've spoken too, and all the reviews I've read, the best value for money in improving "overall" system speed is buying an SSD. (Of course this is after you have the baseline - modern cpu, sufficient ram, modern vid card. What secro said is more than sufficient.)

64GB for an SSD is enough for windows/office/WoW and other stuff. Put the pr0n and other content on a standard HDD.

64GB SSDs can be had for 200-300. Check anand for reviews on SSDs - he seems to be the authoritive source at the moment.
