You dont need a 4890 to play WOW. A 4670 would suffice, or wait for a 4770. Crysis is another story all together and any single gpu will choke on it with high presets.

Your cpu is a bit weak.. may not be worth the price of the 4890 given the systems weaknesses. Get a more value based card, I would even say to wait till the 4770. As for size, the 4890 is about 9" long.

Also, the 4890 needs a very good PSU, what do you have?

Playing Blue Ray & HD-DVD or any HD-material.... The lowest card that i run to play 1080P is the ATI 3870 512.

You need a Blue-Ray Drive and a Playback software such as Power-DVD. Normally Power-DVD is included when you purchase a Blue-Ray drive.
