Hey all, so i just bought all the parts for my new desktop and i still havent decided on what graphics card I want to get and am looking for suggestions. I usually just play WoW and League of Legends so i really just want a card that can max, particularly wow's, settings and keep it at a minimum of 60fps. I play other games too but i can handle them not looking as good because i mainly play the 2 games above.

So here are the specs:
i play on a 27" monitor at 1080p

MSI Z77A-G45 Intel 7 Series Motherboard

Intel Core i7-3770 cpu

and an ULTRA LSP550 550W ATX POWER SUPPLY.

Thanks for the help guys, its my first build and i really appreciate the advice.

P.S. oh and price range of like 100-200 bucks. but im willing to go a bit over as well

For less than $200 your option would be a GTX 660, which can max WoW as it's not a really demanding game.

On another topic, you may want to return that PSU as its reputation is not really good, look at units from Seasonic, Antec, XFX or Corsair. A good, budget friendly one are the Corsair CXM series, like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Agree with PepitoTV.
Both those games prefer Nvidia cards and the fastest within budget is indeed the GTX660.
That power supply is both cheap and nasty, do your system a big favour and swap it for something better.
This is not quite as expensive as the Corsair linked by PepitoTV, but it's not modular either: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That's exactly the case. Just google your model and behold the horror stories.
