Best Graphics Card for WoW? Hear Me Out :)

Ok I know most of you are going to say "WoW is not a GPU based game, my old dell can play WoW" blah blah blah and i know this but for my situation i need some Help.

Ok so right now I have http://www.gateway.com/systems/product/529668659.php
I have the Radeon HD 5770 as the card (if thats all you care about) but spec are linked above.

It runs WoW great but I want to dual screen to Play WoW on one screen and do like Internet/Music/ Anything else on other screen but my graphic s card only has 1 dvi port and 1 hdmi so I want to upgrade my car to something with 2 DVI slots (which alot of cards have).

My question is, What Video Card will be the best for this situation. I have been reading about the Radeon 5870 and the Nvidia 470 and have seen people complaining about FPS issues and im not about to go down that road. :??:

*Im also willing to upgrade my Power Supply so dont worry, if I have to I will*

So if anyone has any advise and suggestions, Please respond. And if you find a good card, im waiting till Black Friday/ Cyber Monday to buy it.

Thanks :D

    yeah 5870 is a big increase in fps, but 5770 should be able to run it really well with what u want.
    but if u do upgrade ive been trying to upgrade to 5770 and ill buy it off u.
    also u can always get a third monitor and run eyefinity
  2. well the 5770 does run it fine but i just want a card with more then 1 dvi slot, this card dosnt
  3. I am currently using a PNY GTX 460 and It runs GREAT! I am getting 60fps everywhere but Dalaran. I am averaging 40-50fps in dal on Ultra settings. It has 2 DVI and a hdmi port. Best card I ever owned
  4. Has any1 tested how the 460 performs outside of dal or any other place with a lot of ground clutter with console command set to max manually?
    It can be very intense My friend has a a 260 and he goes down to 10 fps in zones with a lot of ground clutter + console settings maxed
  5. Why don't you get a HDMT to DVI dongle? http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=hdmi+to+dvi+adapter

    10 dollar adapter or $150 video card.

    Actually after seeing how low the ratings are for the adapters you may want to use a HDMI to DVI cable instead

    For Nubiatem, the 460 should run WoW on Ultra just fine as long as it's matched to a half-decend system. I have a Dual Core 3gig, 4 gig RAM with a 7900 and it runs fine everywhere on Ultra with 30-60fps.

    HDMI is just a single link DVI connection with audio. Just get an HDMI to DVI cable.

    Here is one for $9.99 + free shipping.
