I don't feel comfortable with my limited computer knowledge to build my own. However, I am comfortable with purchasing and installing components such as ram or graphics card. Is there anywhere i can buy a good gaming computer that I can put my own graphics card in?

What currency if that 500-700 in?

US dollars. I didn't realize I left that out

Are you looking just to upgrade your gpu card????

My current computer is about 3 years old and the graphics card I put into it 2 years ago is starting to go out. I'd much rather have a new machine than just a new graphics card. Also, I'm not able to look and see how many watts my power supply is as its hidden and I don't trust myself to remove it and get it put back in correctly.

Removing a PSU is extremely simple. You just unplug all the cables and undo 4 screws. People often don't realise just how simple building a PC actually is. If you can read & research a bit with Google to make sure things are compatible, and use a screwdriver, you're good to go. It really is very, very easy.

Yes. You can also get a free upgrade from the AMD R7 270 to an AMD R7 270X if you look at the graphics card options.

Will this computer be one built to last and also be able to run games such as WoW and Leauge of Legends on high settings with steady high fps?

The link you provided only lets you start the build if your doing a 8 core system such as a amd pick a 8320 or 8350 for the cpu
for ram at least 8 gig 2x4
for the gpu at least a radeon r 270x or higher or a Nvidia 760
At least a 500 watt good name brand power supply 1 terabyte of hard drive space is almost too little these days but will work depending on your needs.

If I change those things do you think that the PC is a good one to buy for gaming?

The best pc you can buy is the one you build yourself if you can put a puzzle together assemble furniture or just put anything together by instructions you can build a pc and there are tons I mean tons of help out here on the net to help folks learn how to build a good pc that's not only cost less last longer and give more then a pre- built system from anyone out there just my 2 cents.
