Alright, i am totally new to building computers and all that. I am looking to build a budget computer that will be perfect for running world of warcraft on maximum details and have multiple of them running. i am trying to spend less then 450 or so.

I was wondering if this is worth buying. And what would i need to have it up and running. like i said i am new at this but i know some things. and i am wanting to eventually make a career out of this but in the mean time. i would really love the help on this project.
thank you so much

For gaming you need more Ram, an add on video card and dependent on the video card you choose you may need a more powerful psu.

Minimum requirements for Wrath to run at maxiumum graphics is an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz, 4GB of ram and a 512MB video card. Get a system better than that if you want to run multiple clients. Those are just the specs on my laptop and I get 60FPS at maximum graphics.
