OOh..with that budget you can blow those games out of the water with 60+ FPS steady. Give me a minute to make a cool list.

I include Operating System in my builds since I assume no one starts off with it. If you do have an OS than upgrade the GPU to a 7950.
TimeLass build is also good, but does not take into consideration an OS.

Do you care about overclocking and dual graphics cards down the line?

April 6, 2013 1:51:34 AM

Well yeah as long as the case leaves me enough space to put in another graphic card and overclocking probably if it is simple enough for me to do it by myself and if it safe enough on the whole PC.

Change that GPU to 7870 XT, the game that you will be playing mainly focused on CPU.

honestly if all you want to play is WOW and GW2, you can build an A10-5800k build (with the integrated GPU) for less than $500 and be able to play them both on decent settings...if you go this route, get 1866 speed RAM...it will help the graphics
