I'm looking for a good pc that will play World of Warcraft on High at Least and I have my eye on one that has
Intel Core i5-4570 Dual-Core processor 3.60GHz, 6MB L3 Cache
8GB DDR3 SDRAM system memory (expandable to 32GB)
1TB SATA hard drive
Motherboard Intel H81 Express Chipset
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Graphics
With 1GB dedicated graphics memory, HDMI and VGA capabilities
Is this good enough? Or should i look for something better? My budget I'm trying to stick to is about $600 to $700.

It isn't quite good enough. See this page here:

That is comparing the same graphics chipset in laptops, which would make it a little slower but close. However, you shouldn't say no to that system. If the price seems good to you, buy it. For around $50 you can buy a cheap graphics card to put inside of the computer that will run World of Warcraft with the settings maxed out. It is really easy to put the graphics card in if you have never done it before.

intel integrated graphics won't play WoW on high. Honestly, the i3 can handle wow pretty well (I have it in an office computer then runs full high a few ultra settings, but it does need a decent GPU with it to burden some of the load, integrated graphics may get you to medium settins at most but I doubt it. The Build I have in my office on high/ultra settings is running

i3-4130
8 GB Ram
500W power supply
Sapphire r7 260x

I Would say for stable High Settingsd you should get at least an r7 260. Best of luck to you sir.

A Miss who likes computer games and anime, now its interesting. ;) 

Anyways I looked at the new rig you posted, that one is much better. It is actually better than you even think. Its a quad core processor and fast. The graphics card, I actually owned one just like that for a while. You won't have any issues at all with WoW maxed out.

Also if you are interested you might try building your own system. There is a little bit of study involved, but you can get a better system overall and you will know your system better which helps if you ever have to fix it.

If you are interested in doing that instead, PM me and I will help you pick out parts and walk you through setting it up.

lol Thank you so much! I was a bit worried the graphic card still wouldn't be enough but i'll trust you. lol I'm not looking to build my own system Just yet, I'm going to start college soon and i'll be taking some computer classes so maybe i'll start when I'm more knowledgeable Thank you! <3

No problem, happy to help. The GPU really should be.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-gef...

See that link. They did high settings with 1080P and managed a minimum of 34FPS. So it should be good. I personally would drop AA down low or completely off, and if you do that you would manage all other settings on Ultra settings at a playable rate.

Though are you sure you want a desktop in this case? If you are starting college you might want to consider a laptop unless you will be living at home while attending school. For around $750 you can get a laptop should manage the same performance, but might have a lower resolution display.

Thanks :)  Yeah I'm sure. I already have a laptop and I will living at home so no big deal right now. This Desktop I'm getting is for gaming, mostly WoW. It's a gift from my mom.
