As the title states I am trying to play World of Warcraft on ultra settings @1080p at a playable FPS. I have the basis of the build picked out but I am not entirely sure about the CPU and the GPU. I would prefer Intel and as for the GPU the best performance for the price is my main concern. Would I be better off just running a i7 ivy-bridge on the hd4000 graphics until I can afford a nice GPU? I would also like the ability to upgrade down the road to run things like BF3&4 on ultra settings as well.

Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4-M ($90)
Optical Drive: ASUS 24x ($20)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Blue 500GB ($60)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430 ($40)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw 2x4GB ($60)
CPU: ????? (i3,i5,i7)
GPU: ?????
Case: ????? (preferably cheap)
