Well I see that most(all) of your items are from Microcenter, so I stuck with them. I'd go with a MSI GeForce GTX 960 Gaming 4GB. While I do not have personal experience with any of the 960 line, I can tell you that my older HD7950 play WoW on High settings in 25 man raids and I get a good steady 50 fps in BF4 without a problem on Ultra. Pretty sure that the 960 will be ample enough to do what you want to do.

I'M also putting a rig together for just playing WoW on Max/Ultra and have be asking around the forum for over a month now what is the best build etc. etc. I've bit the bullet and decided to go with a i5-K build just so I have the power if ever needed it but two things are for sure from what I have been told, 1) the G3258 OC'd at 4.0 MHz will do fine in WoW and 2) go 960 while Radeon card will work WoW favors Nvidia. You can get this for $180 https://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-gtx9602gd5toc which is my plan to get and will do fine. Here take a look at this site it might help.
