PSU: 500W Zalman
CPU: AMD Athlon x4 845 3.5 GHz (3.8 Boost)

League of Legends and WoW are not very demanding. Generally speaking though I recommend the RX 460 or GTX 1050. Both of these GPUs are more than enough for the games you mentioned as well as current AAA titles.

I would go for the 4gb model if you can for a bit of future proofing but yes, that is a solid GPU for your needs Wink

Better do it with amd radeon r7 2gb ddr 5 by sapphire.

Cheap but reasonable performa, because the cpu that you re use are not quite enough for computing FPS.
IMHO

I disagree, the RX 460 is about on par with an r9 270 in performance. Neither the R9 270 or the RX 460 will be significantly bottlenecked on that system. The RX 460 is by far the better choice as it uses a newer architecture with more advanced DX 12 support. Also, bare in mind DX 12 drastically decreases CPU load vs DX 11. It is a question of value for money, the R7 and R9 lineup are old now and will lack features found in newer architectures. The price difference isn't enough to make up for the difference.

I fully understand what you are saying, on a budget the R7 250 is a great little GPU and will run these games perfectly fine. It is by no means a bad choice but your budget isn't necessarily the same as the thread owners. They already said they were interested in the RX 460 so that must be within their budget.

My disagreement was particularly regarding your statement that the RX 460 would be bottlenecked by that system, that is quite simply false. 

The R7 250 should be able to work in dual graphics mode with an A10 7k series CPU, if you own one and have not already you should try it out, it should net you some extra FPS in supporting games Wink

If you need help with dual graphics please make a thread for the issue so we don't derail someone elses Wink
