On the desktop, if you have to go prebuilt, maybe grab something like that, and then a card like this.

That's a 4670, it's a budget card, but still decent.

Consider this system as well

Not quite as fast as what you looked at before, but cheaper. Either way with your price range, you are going to probably need a video card upgrade for any serious gaming.

CoD4 Runs good on pretty much anything. It was running smooth on my 6800XT at 1024x768 (40% Custom XD)

I run it at 1900x1080 now with everything maxed and AAx4 with my 260GTX Core 216SC (Custom Build)

No idea what WoW runs on as I have never touched it.
