So yeah, how would this play WoW and D3? Like graphic settings and FPS wise? Cam I downgrade anything to save money?

If you are buying that CPU at microcenter, buy the mobo there as well, youll save like $50. And if you are going with a non overclockable CPU, get the H61 chipset motherboard, itll save you even more money.
