World of Warcraft Build

Hello. I wanted to get into building a Windows PC but wanted to start relatively low in performance. I mainly wanted to start play WoW again with friends and have something that I can actually work on school wise (my current laptop is a tiny pink mini notebook my sister let me borrow. It freezes writing documents -_-'). Even though I do/used to play more demanding games, I was just looking to start relatively small while I work on getting funds together to upgrade. My budget is around 500 dollars ( cheaper would be great, but I can understand if higher), I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania US, and I already have a monitor that I used from my old laptop, a mouse, and keyboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Didn't know if you needed OS or not so I left some room in the price in case you do need it. If not, then you can slap on an SSD.

If you can manage the extra bit, this would be a solid list.
