Hello,
I wanted to see if anyone can help me with making a semi-new build so that I can run World of Warcraft smooth as a babys bottom. I plan on retaining my Hard drives, power supply, case, monitor(for now),and possibly my gfx card.

What I'm looking for help with is a good bang for my buck configuration for pretty much only a Mobo, CPU, memory, and possibly a gfx card combo for about $400-500 if possible. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

While I don't know anything about world of warcraft specifically, I can tell you we'll need to know what power supply and graphics you have now to come up with a good recommendation.
