Budget WoW Gaming PC for girlfriend $500-$1000

Intel - General - www.overclock.net
Hello all. Been out of the loop for a while, so I'm back to catch up. A lot of new stuff such as Vega and Ryzen and all that noise.

Got my girlfriend into World of Warcraft a few months back. She's playing on a budget laptop she used mostly for college and YouTube vidoes. Her fps were fine in earlier zones, since the textures were so simple. But now we've finally hit the level cap, and are trying to raid together. She's getting between 2-5 fps in pretty much all raids, so she's about to give up on raiding all together. Only other game she really plays is Sims 4. Raiding in Legion, (current expansion) is rather CPU intense. I realize that back in the day WoW, could run on a "toaster", but that is not the case anymore. Even my computer dips between 25-30 fps in the new areas in Legion.

I've heard Intel had better efficiency on higher clock rates, but again I've been out of the loop, so things might have changed. I'm not really biased towards either, since I've owned both in the past. I already have a 1080p 24' LED for her to use.

She loves the color purple.

So here's what I've looking at:
