1st off let me start off by saying hi to everyone and I know my computer knowledge is at a level of let's just say NOOB.. but at the same time I know what I want out of my gaming rig maybe not in components but that's why I'm posting here today. There are many forum posts on this matter I'll be asking about today but none are direct to the point nor are they up to date. With all that said let's get too my problem.
I have a $900 - $1,500 US Currency limit or less if possible (wife would prefer less)
I ONLY play World of Warcraft I know that's difficult to believe but non the less it's true I have played the game from day 1 and have never been able to play on max settings at all or nowadays max out and on ultra settings.
I want to play on a HD Monitor around a 24 inch to 29 inch range and run as high quality graphics as I can within budget if not I'll get the monitor separate later on. The last 10 years I have played I have also suffered with extremely low F.P.S. and would like my new build to run on ULTRA with TOP end F.P.S. rate like 60 or 50..
I do not raid that often if I do its mostly in LFR.. Most of my time is spent in 5 man dungeons or questing and craftsmanship. The wife and I play together with another couple while we play so I don't do a lot of high end raiding atm.. With this info and my budget please give me a shopping suggestions list to help me build my new 2014 World of Warcraft gaming rig that will run the game with the expansion WOD. With all the new graphics upgrades in the game on 1080p HD Ultra settings this is the monitor I was thinking of getting if this helps at all.

Get a strong cpu like the i5-4670k for wow, as it is a cpu intensive game, then get something like a gtx 760 or 770 (770 for over 60 fps on ultra during raid finder)

Games like WoW rely more on the CPU so either an i5-4670k or 8350 will be great for wow. Graphics cards help but WoW barely use 50% load when playing. Currently I'm running a 3 year old HD6870 and an i5-4670k, and I can get around 50 fps in populated areas like Stormwind and 90+ in small areas like inns.

Get an i5 4570 or an FX 8320, they are possibly the cheapest CPUs you can do. Most MMOs don't have large texture sizes, but there are many objects and players that need to be rendered which relies mainly on the CPU and the RAM. For the GPU, getting a R7 260X would be good enough to play on a 1080p Monitor with everything maxed out. RAM should also help the performance greatly, due to many objects and players that need to be rendered

Thanks for the info so motherboard and such doesn't really play a factor then I take it?
I'd like the fact I can use the geforce card what model would be best err I mean 770 series would be best but what bran there are so many to choose from like Asus.. PNY.. and others what model 770 would be best

Afternoon Darkness,

I have been looking into this myself I am very good with computer building countless gaming rigs as a hobby, currently I have a AMD 8320 with a Asus GTX 750TI with 8GB of RAMM and with this set up with ultra setting on I get 50+ FPS during Hard-core 10 man Raiding this is still consistent in the Burst phase (first 30 seconds while people pop big CD's), I have never had a problem with this set up and while playing WOD Beta my frames were absolutely fine, so my Advice is either for an AMD 8320 or above alternatively if you prefer Intel you can get an I5 4690K because that is also a very powerful processor for the price that you will pay about £100ish, I hope this helps.

Glory to the Alliance!

^^^My kid's rig. He gets 90 FPS on ultra in a 20man standing still and 65 FPS during fights. All this while in vent and running iTunes. The heart of this build is the new Intel Pentium G3258. It is only a dual core with no multi-threading but is also only $70 but it is unlocked therefore with a decent mobo (6+ power phases) and even a cheap air cooler you can overclock this. Darkness, I think you're missing the point, and that is that mmo's (WoW) are CPU dependent, ie that's what computes all the crazy shit going on in raids. So, if you get anything to upgrade for FPS gains, get an unlocked CPU
(i5,i7,Pentium G3258, FX-6300, FX-8350 etc.) and overclock it. Then I think most people say the optimal range for gpu's is like GTX 760 or 770 or for AMD R9 270x or 280x. MSI makes motherboards that are easy to oc with "OCGenie". Asrock oc formula mobo's have presets. You can get something like this for around $120ish and a simple air cooler for like $30-50ish. This will make both your wife and you very happy :)

You DO NOT need more than 2 cores for WoW. The G3258, unlocked 2 core for $70 will handle the game and additional apps even though it doesn't have "multi-threading". CPU clock speed is what's important That's $160 savings you could spend on a good overclocking motherboard and a badass push/pull air cooler. Then just spend your money on a 4 gig 770. All this is about $650. You could get 2 computers done like this for your budget!!!
