Hello
I can't give you an exact percentage but VGA plays the most important role,(lets say about 70%-90% depending on the game),the its the CPU and RAM.
Overall VGA has the most impact on gaming performance.

Video Graphics Array

when most people say VGA or GPU, they mean your video card

I'd have to agree but would like to add the hard drive system since most graphics load the video card directly from the harddrive with minimal cpu time a fast HDD system will make a noticable difference. I'm not talking about going from 5400 rpm drive to a 7200; you'll see the boost when you go from a single drive to a raid array or an SSD.

No popatim it doesn't. Read the question again.

Once the game/map is loaded into ram, the harddrive play 0% in the FPS. None. The GPU plays the biggest part, followed by the CPU and then the ram. The drive system only factors into loading the game or maps. Once that is down it play no part.

for world of warcraft, you want a fast/high clocked dual core and a decent graphics card, 9800gt+

Also note that the CPU is important in the sense that if it's not fast enough, it'll hold back more powerful graphics cards.
