Another good build, from Stoanee.

No need to upgrade the PSU from either builds; the 9600GT only need a single 6-pin PCI-e connector, and does not need that much power.

If you want to be certain you get enough video power to play WoW and Aion, and if you can squeeze and extra $10-$15 per machine, (keeping with Charlie's recommendation of an external CDROM bay) you could always grab an HD4850 like this one instead of the 9600. The 4850 is an awesome card, and would be more than enough to handle anything like that, and it would fit in to you power constraints. (It'd be tight, but it would work).

No way that integrated video can play Aion or even WoW. I tried playing Bionic Commando Rearmed, which does not nearly need as many resources as those other 2 games, on a 780g chipset and it ran at like 10fps at 720p. Get a GPU
