Gaming PC Build Overview - Need Feedback

So I am trying to purchase a new desktop in the price range of 700-800$ (don't want to spend more than 800). The only thing I will be using this PC for is gaming (with a side of writing essays and surfing the web).

Whats important to know is that the only game I will be playing is World of Warcraft: WoD. This is an mmorpg, so it does not require much and I would like to run it on high settings. My last best buy pc for 550$ ran it just fine.

A few people were nice enough to give me custom builds, but I don't know much about parts, brands and performance, so I am asking you to please criticize the builds and tell me if i should change some parts, or maybe make a better build.

Build 1: http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-1889061/amd-budget-gaming-build-dendrotoxin-delux.html
This build is cheap, under 600$. So I am very happy with the price, but are the parts good enough? WoW is all i'm going to play

    Here is a better idea, that case is overkill, a $20 case will do fine.
