This. Your budget is too low for a PSU and GPU combo to max.

You will need at least a good Seasonic 520w or Corsair CX600 and something around a GTX 660.
That gives you a bit of leeway for mods too. I can't imagine Online to be any more demanding than the actual program with the official HD pack.

That's about as reasonable as you can get. The least which might lag a bit at 1080p would be something like a 7770.
