First time build: WOW-MOP gaming PC

Hi, everyone.

I am looking to build a new gaming PC for main playing Mist of Pandaria, currently I have a lenovo Y470 laptop (I7 and GT 550M graphic card whish performed well for me in Cataclysm (lowest settings). I play lowest setting cuz I want more FPS, now with the new MOP expansion which is a lot more demanding that previous version I'd say, I plan to build a Desktop for it, not on budget but not looking for a real hardcore machine as well. Moderate one is good enough. ( >100 fps with fair settings, DX9 or DX11 doesn't matter. )

I will try to be more specific next time. this time I will chose Zared619's advice./ Thanks ALL
