The good news is you'll be able to power most of Detroit with the unused wattage from your power supply. I have a thing to go to atm, but I'll post some suggestions later.

You definately aren't saving money if you're building a rig to run WoW smoothly. And unless you plan to do some heavy media storage, 1.5TB is overkill.

You can get away with a 2.7Ghz AMD Dual Core for 1/2 the price of the one you've go listed, shave about $70-80 off the Mobo, you definately don't need 8 gigs of Memory (and many system configurations don't even work properly without tweaking above 4 gigs). 9800GTX is overkill as well (you can get away with a 9400 GT, it will run WoW on high settings). And you can certainly power a system like this with something like the 550 watt Fatal1ty power supply, which is nice because of it's modular design.

Kill the sound card, too. Most ASUS boards come with at least 5.1 onboard. There's no need to spend money on a PCI space taken up that does the same exact thing with more driver complication and heat exchange in your case. All in all, you could save hundreds.
