What would be the ideal CPU for LGA1156?

I'm building a mid-range desktop, but I got stuck on the CPU choice, because I've got this motherboard: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1156/P7P55DE/#specifications, with a 1156 socket, would be nice if I had 1155, but I already made the purchase, so there's no going back now.

I want to use the computer for Photoshop, Web-designing and of course playing games.
But specifically I would like to play World of Warcraft 25-man raids, with at least 30fps on maximum graphics without breaks/lag.

I'm afraid of choosing a weak CPU, but I also don't have the money to buy the best i7, so I would like a CPU that could handle WoW on max graphics and for a good price.

What LGA1156 CPU you recommend me to buy?
