So I can finally afford to update my computer and I'm looking for a decent build.

It's going to be mainly for gaming and assorted household tasks and as far as games go I'm not looking for super ultra high end...just something that can run say WoW or Doom on something other than the lowest settings.

I'm looking to keep my budget between $550 and $650.00 usd.

I've already got a 1TB HD. A Sealand ST31000524AS to be exact.

I've also got a good monitor. A Dell ST2320L 23" wide screen.

Best bang-for-the-buck CPU in the G4560, the necessary stuff around it. Had room to upgrade your GPU and PSU to the 8G and G2 respectively.
