My friend is looking to build a PC that can play wow on high-ultra, he needs to buy windows again probably so he has more like £350 to spend. Are there any prebuilt machines that could handle wow for that kind of price? I don't want to have to build it for him but I will probably end up having to do so.

WoW heavily favors Nvidia graphics, so I would recommend a GTX 950, over the RX 460. This is a bit over the 450, but I cannot really recommend anything less. Maybe try to find a good deal, on a used GTX 760.

For 350, theres no way with an OS. Also, any prebuild you get for this kind of cash will have very poor components and will in no way be optimal in price/perf.
