Sempron 3000+ Manila 1.6ghz - $28
ECS 690G - ~$70
1-2 gigs of ram - ~$38-$75
Fortron PSU - $37
$173-$215 total, this should play WoW just fine, of course you can always get a LOT more if you're really gonna spend $400

Yeah, I did mention he can get a lot more for the money, that setup was bare minimum and it should handle WoW just fine. Of course an extra $30 for a 3600+ would be really smart, but light gaming with a sempron should work, with a bit of overclocking it should work even better too
