Is this a good cheap build for maxing wow?

I'm planning on making a new cheap wow build since my laptop screen has lots of dead pixels and I'd rather get a new desktop than laptop.I literally only play stuff like wow, diablo 3, maybe some farcry 3 and such and I don't expect max graphics on newer games, don't ever play FPS games because i'm an old school gamer (any might and magic fans will know what I mean). Need some feedback on this build that I've bundled on amazon and possible switched out parts if you deem neccessary.

CPU - AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU, Retail Packaged

ram - Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit

GPU - Sapphire Radeon HD7770 Graphics Card (1GB, GDDR5)

Case - CiT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case with HD Audio, 4 Fans, Card Reader and No PSU - Black

Mobo - Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard (Socket AM3+, Up to 16GB DDR3, USB 3.0, uATX)

psu - Cooler Master 500W 12V Elite Power 500 Power Supply Unit

All of these comes off around about £310-320 give or take, not worried about future upgrades because this build will only be used for a few years (until my current level 3 college course ends, 2 years etc.) then i'll be doing a new build and giving this to my little brother as a gift :)

  1. it will do ok in Wow and alright in med setting for farcry3. its failry close to what I'm still running and I consider myself due for an upgrade. I will be going the intel route fwiw. I would make sure you get a motherbd thats compatible with the new fx line if AMD is still your intention.
