The UI I'm currently using is ElvUI, it's a light-weight user interface that uses approx between 700 and 900 KB memory. I've only recently started to use it, but before that I've redone my UI for about 4 years and main thing I've learned is that the positioning of specific cooldowns and abilities is very specific for everyone, the functionality comes first, but the placement is up to everyone personally (like the biggest example; placement of raid frames for healers).

Functionality: When creating your UI the most important things to remember are the following:

- Mana
- Spell cooldown and procs
- Buff and (more importantly) debuffs, tank cooldowns, raid icons, PW:S, Weakened Soul and renew)

At the moment I've become a great fan of ElvUI, but if you're just looking for tiny tweeking I would recommend addons like Bartender, BigWigs, ForteXorcist, Mik Scro

- Boss mod (standart settings can do, but depending your UI you don't want overlap etc.)
- Raid frame (and on this you'll want to see range, dlling Battle Text, Pitbull and/or Quartz.

I like this a lot as a streamlined guide. Reminds me of Poptisse from Ensidia's 3.1 / 3.2 guides.
