Are you just going to be using the computer for WoW? If so this machine is possibly even a little over the top and you could cut back a bit on it, i.e. you don't need a 512mb GFX card etc.
My old p4 2.4ghz with DDR400 ran WoW without any real problems. The setup you have listed would be powerful enough for it.

As for the price? I have a similar system at the moment which i paid a similar amount for (except in NZD) and without a monitor & other peripherals, so it doesn't sound too bad to me I guess.

As for the Mobo and RAM options make sure they are compatible, i.e. if your buying DDR2 RAM make sure your Mobo will handle it and same if you are getting an SATA hdd and that it's a LGA775 that supports of core 2 duo otherwise your processor won't work with it and things like that.

Hope that's somewhat helpful. Heh.

That's a good price for what you're getting. Like raspygold said, though, thats way more than you need for WoW. You can cut down the processor a lot (I ran wow flawlessly on a $50 athlon), and the graphics card a little bit too.
