Default Could use a little help

Hi i am a casual online gamer and have been for a couple years, my computer knowledge is limited as is my knowledge of anything to do with gaming computers. I play WoW casually but i am looking to get back into it and doing so i'd like to purchase a new desktop, my price range is around 500-650ish range and if somone who knows anthing could point in me the right direction that would be great, all im looking for is to run the game with moderate to higher settings with no problem at all. Any feedback would be great.

he current computer im looking at within my price range the specs are:

iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme LAN580 Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-6100(3.3GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

your forgetting a few things. a motherboad, a power supply and a disk drive, plus screens, keybaord, mouse and headset/speakers. Are you looking at building this your self or are you looking to buy a pre-built system?

What he has listed at the bottom of the post is a whole computer (pre-built). Since he said he is a casual gamer and has been for a few years we can assume he already has everything and just wants a new computer.
