You'll need actual Warcraft accounts.
The Battlechest includes both Classic and Burning Crusade; that will get you started, but you'll eventually want to add Wrath and Cataclysm to those accounts.
Be sure to do the Recruit a Friend promotion.
Use an existing account, or set up one of the accounts you purchase.
Go into account management, and send your own email a Recruit a Friend invite.
Use the code Blizzard emails to set up the account.
And then upgrade it with your retail code.
Repeat the process, but each time from the latest added account.
So A invites B, B invites C, C invites D and D invites E.
If you're willing to build your system yourself (there are a ton of online tutorials, and you'll get support from both boxing sites if you have questions Multiboxing.com and Dual-Boxing -dot- com), you'll get a much better system than if you want one pre-assembled; or another way of looking at it, you'll pay a lot less for an identical system if you assemble it yourself.
You could have a friend assemble it for you, if you're uncomfortable doing this. It isn't that hard, and a $1500 system assembled, won't cost you $1000 in parts.
Depending on your budget, will determine what you go for, for a system.
I would recommend an i5 2500K (if you're primarily boxing/gaming) or an i7 2600K based system (if you'll do tasks that use Hyperthreading, such as video editing/encoding etc); the 2600K is about a $100 more expensive.
Any motherboard that supports the 2500/2600K processors will work.
12GB of DDR 1600mhz ram, will be plenty for boxing (6GB would work, but ram is cheap and 12GB is better than 6GB).
Get a decent video card, anything that was new in the past 2-3 years would work for boxing.
I'd go for a SSD drive, at least 64GB as a gaming folder or 100GB+ if you want to put your operating system on it too; a cheap gaming folder SSD is fine, or if you're putting your OS on it, then go for a more expensive/superior version like an Intel 510 or OCZ Vertex 3.
You'll definitely want a 64-bit Operating System, Win7 Professional probably.
