Hello, so lately I have been thinking of upgrading my gaming computer, but my budget is currently around 400$. I can get more though.

I was wondering if you guys could help me out building one that goes around that price, I play World of Warcraft, I would be very happy if i could play it on High with like 30 fps or Ultra I'm not sure how well I could do.

Anyways.
This is what I already have:
-Hard drive
-CD-Room
-Mouse
-Keyboard
-Monitor
-Headphones
-OS

This is what I would need:
-Motherboard
-CPU (Processor)
-Graphics Card
-Power Supply (PSU)
-RAM Memory
-Case

That's about it lol everything that goes in the case except for the hard drive and cd room which I already have.

But like I said, I can get more, like around 500$, not sure if that is enough! i hope you guys can help me out with this. Thanks

That is a very low budget. To the point where I say "save your money" because the build isn't worth it.

I can get more, that's my current budget though.
How about 500$?

This is enough to max out WoW. With a bit of OC, it can do well against most games.
