Good CPU to pair with the HD Radeon 7850 for World of Warcraft.

So, I'm fairly new to building computers and was wondering what would be the best CPU to pair with the HD Radeon 7850 for WoW. I would like to keep my budget fairly low. Maybe, $125 - $175. Currently, I do not have anything for this build. I'm just looking for opinions on my topic.

P.S. Is World of Warcraft more CPU based or GPU based?

Thanks!!

  1. WoW is rather CPU intensive. WoW still favors Intel CPUs, and they will normally outperform their AMD counter-part. So with that said, I would likely look into an i5. But a full budget for the rest of your system would help as well.
  2. As of right now, my budget for whole system is $800

  4. I guess I could push the limit on my CPU budget a little bit.
