Hi, I am very new to building PCs. In fact, I haven't any knowledge on it, really. I'd like to have a gaming PC within a 1300$ US dollar price range. I live in California.
I'm not exactly sure what I need, I was hoping someone could help me put one together. I want this solely for gaming, as the title and my reference to it in the first paragraph says. I'd LIKE to be able to run it on high settings, and still get a really smooth FPS, if this is possible for ~1300 dollars. If anyone could help me put one together or point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.
The game I play the most is World of Warcraft, so it would be centered around this, but not ignoring other aspects of play. Venice or Dual Core is preferred, but if you can go with something else that will definitely get the job done, then so be it.

Ill start if off from there, thats a solid system. You can upgrade things as you wish, a monitor or whatever you want but thats fine for what you will be doing..
I started off on this pc its a solid pc to start on and pick what you want...http://www.cyberpowe...a64pcie.asp?v=d
**edit** it would be easier if you just had them build for you and ship it to you..
Make shure when you go to configure it you select an operating system for it, I chose win xp with service pack 2 home edition.
