I need a computer that is between 400-500 dollars that can play Minecraft and WoW at a decent fps 40-50. I would like minecraft to be able to have fancy graphics and far render distance and for WoW it doesnt have to be ultra but at least medium-high settings. please include links to the computers. I would do this myself but im no good at shopping for computers. Thanks!

Here is a great build for $550 or so. It has a nice AMD CPU, as well as a GPU that will max out almost all game at 1080p. It has 8GB of RAM, and a nice Seagate HDD. :)

Only thing I would do is bring that HDD up to a 1TB; there is no real reason not to for the extra $10 or so. Also, if OP is willing to pay more than $500, I would revise the build to have a better GPU; however, I will say that my build went quite far over the budget, and if OP has a very strict budget, then this is the way to go.
