Which one would you say is better?

I'd be mainly using it for WoW and other games coming out.

and also, are these good deals for the packages??

The second one because it has the latest motherboard chipset and a way faster processor but the only thing is that it doesn't include a graphics card. You could add one easily, like this.

First, Thank you very much for replying to my thread.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.753170&cm_sp=DIY_PC_Combos-_-753170-_-Combo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.679878&cm_sp=DIY_PC_Combos-_-679878-_-Combo

Can I get your thoughts/Opinions on the two above.
I'm trying to buy something that's bundled to save some money.

or this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.722559&cm_sp=DIY_PC_Combos-_-722559-_-Combo
It's a little more pricey, I'm just not sure if it's worth the $100 more.

I appreciate any help.
Thank you!

I would get the second one because of the chipset and the processor itself.

I would still go for the second one in the first post, it includes most everything you need whereas the second one in post three still needs more equipment to work, besides, that SSD doesn't have much capacity. None of these combos include Windows either.

Do you know of any better package deals?

In terms of package deals, there are none, that I'm aware of, which are geared for performance and include every single item. You will need a case, a CPU, a motherboard, RAM, a hard drive of some kind, an optical disk drive, a power supply, a graphics card, and the operating system. The second combo in your first post is great, you just need two more things to complete it, a graphics card and the operating system.

Graphics Card: XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB - For WoW and most new games, this will be enough. Killer's card is a very high-end one, the fastest single GPU card AMD has. The 6870 is AMD's upper mid-range card. I have a 5850 and can play Skyrim with most settings on ultra, the 5850 is a little slower than this card. $174

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM - You need this. $99

I would like to spend around 600-800.

But in the builds I've seen/people I've talked to they all come up to around 900-1000$.

Does that seem right? or am I just putting over pricey builds together

Tweaking your build might help a bit:

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW - $54
Motherboard - ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 - $99
Graphics Card: XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB - $174 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)
PSU: ENERMAX NAXN ENP550AWT 550W - $64
CPU: AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz - $209
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - $24
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB - $94
ODD: Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model AD-7261S-0B LightScribe Support - $19
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM - $99

Grand Total: $844 (Before taxes, rebates, and shipping)

You can decrease the price by going with any of the below processors.
AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz - $179 (with a free DVD-RW drive as a limited time offer.)
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz - $149
AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz - $119

All of these CPU's are good and can get you where you need to go performance wise.

This case could also work right?

Also, THANK YOU very much for your help.
You don't understand how much I appreciate it

Yes that case would work but it uses a older case design in terms of power supply position.

That case will work, but shipping is very expensive on it bringing the price up to $89. If you are going to do that, go for the NZXT ZERO 2 Crafted Series CS-NT-ZERO-2 which is $99 and looks better (In my opinion anyway). Or, you can go with the HEC 98 98R9BB which has free shipping. Full ATX cases will last a while and cover your computing needs for several builds, plus, they are easier to work in.

The cases DJ suggested has a far more modern efficient case design.
