Looking for build advice šŸ’¾

Hi there,

I'm currently in the market for a new PC, it's been about 12 years since I've done this so I'm rusty and want to ensure I'm getting optimal bang for my buck without breaking the bank. Having checked the recommended requirements for WoW on this site. I'm unsure if I've specced this a little too high, or if I'm on the ball, but that's what I've come here to talk about. One thing I'm not 100% on is what the best cooling option would be? Do you feel it would be beneficial to upgrade to liquid cooling etc?

Hopefully, I've provided all the requested Info. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Budget - I have about Ā£1600 but if I can lessen this, all the better.

USE - The main use is for gaming, specifically World Of Warcraft. I may look at playing other titles so some future-proofing would be good, but it's not crucial.

Monitor - My current monitor is a Samsung Syncmaster 2443bw - I will be looking to upgrade the monitor within the next 6 months, so it's not imperative to downgrade hardware solely for this reason.
