So i was looking around newegg.com and i came across 2 graphics cards in my budget 150-200$ for gaming (mainly WoW).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Which do you guys think would give me the most bang for my buck for running wow at max settings with an average 50+ fps rate.

Or are there other cards that would give me better value for my money?

I would say the 5770 would prob be the best... Since it has dx11... But you prob already know this. I would personally go for the 5770.But the 260 maybe has a bit edge performance wise

What about the other spec? PSU? RAM? CPU?
From the option above, i would choose 5770 because of it's efficiency and dx11 ability... :)

the gtx260 is slightly faster than the 5770 but personaly i would get neither. for the same money ($194.99) i bought a XFX HD 4890 from amazon.

the 4890 will run circles around the other 2 cards. the only good thing about the 5770 is that it supports directx11 and eyefinity, which is pointless because it is too weak to run the few games that support dx11

the gtx260 supports physX but still, rather something a bit better like a 4890

Well see the problem with the amazon idea is that i HAVE to buy it from newegg which i should probably have stated in the first post i made. As for PSU/CPU etc here is the bundle i am getting from newegg it has everything except gpu (which im picking out as you can see) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I...

Do you think that with that card i can still get 50+ fps in most games such as wow on max settings?

These are you two best options:

XFX 4890: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Gigabyte GTX260 OC (that you listed): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would skip past the 5770 and get the better performance that either of the cards above offer. The 4890 outperforms a stock GTX260, however with the OC on this card it puts it similar in performance to a GTX275, which is comparable to a 4890. If you plan to overclock, the 4890 will have more headroom though.
