Gaming PC

Can anyone offer any links/suggestions for a Gaming PC around the 600 mark (possibly a bit higher), to be used for playing World of Warcraft mostly if that helps with any suggestions :)

Just the base unit don't need monitor or keyboard etc. just a bog standard dvdrw and if an OS it has to be windows 7 or XP but bare bones without any installation on it is fine too if it works out cheaper to buy the OS seperate and install myself I can do that.

Appreciate it as I'm a bit clueless when it comes to hardware.

Would you build your own? if so for a PC just to run WOW you would be looking at less then £400 that would be more then capable. Can help you with parts if you like

£594 and a few pennies if you delete the 24" monitor.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Quad Core Processor AM3 (3.40GHz, 8MB Cache)
Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 bit
4GB 1333MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM (2x2GB)
1TB Serial ATA 2 Hard Drive
22x Dual Layer DVD Writer Super Format +R/-R/RW/RAM
512MB ATI Radeon 5450 Graphics Accelerator GDDR5 with DirectX 11
On board 7.1 HD sound card
Logitech keyboard and mouse (you can't delete them)
So, for your budget you have a machine that should barely go beyond a mild sigh when presented with its everyday tasks.
As previously said, you can get an entirely capable PC for much less. Whether you do so or not really depends on whether or not you'd like some performance in reserve (ie lots) or you reckon that your current demands are unlikely to change much.
I don't know what monitor you currently have but I know I'd definitely consider going for the one that this comes with this (at a total of £699 + delivery) as it's a pretty good Iiyama Prolite 24" HD job.

Heya I think that looks one of the best prices yet. But I notice it comes with a mini case by default that only has a 350w power supply, do you think this will be more than enough for this computer? My current computer has a 550w power supply for much lower specs. Should I upgrade the case?

What it has will be fine with that PSU but, for the small extra outlay, you may as well go for the 550W upgrade on offer in the midi case especially if you have plans to upgrade or add components in the future.
