Hey guys, So let me start this with I have never built a computer before. I'm planning on this being my first gaming pc. I raid end game content on wow currently and I want to up grade my current comp (AMD athlon II 640 processor 3.0GHz, 4GM RAM, Integrated graphics using ATI Radeon 4200. PSU 180W )

What do you guys think of this build?

As far as what you plan on using that computer for its overkill for warcraft. It will run the game no problem on ultra settings. Might still have to turn down shadow effects some, but that can tax even the best of systems. Warcraft is not a demanding game. It's well behind the times on graphic engines.

Do you have any advice on where I can shave some money off my current dream build total and still run ultra settings?

Overkill for WOW, you'll handle most games comfortably on 1080p high/vhigh settings.

Might as well chuck an SSD in there for good measure, they're great ^

Yeah sure, drop the expensive Mobo (no point cos you can't OC the 4670 anyway, you need the "k" to do that). Try something like the H81M-Plus mATX, cheap but good. Or the MSI B85M-P33/MSI B85M-G43/Vanguard B-85.

Downgrade to a GTX 760 or R9 270X (have a look at my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/wgdCmG). You'll only drop a few FPS on heavy games, but will still handle everything with ease (mine does).

Drop the CPU cooler, stock is more than sufficient if you're not OC'ing.

This won't save you money, but the corsair builder PSU's are pretty cheaply made. Take a look at SeaSonic (500-550w is enough) or XFX, which are almost as good.

Besides that you're all good I reckon.

EDIT: remember this is all only my opinion, I'm not bothered about aesthetics, I just wanted something good for the money. I wasn't bothered about over clocking or cable management etc. so will probably be biased. :-P
