  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    HD 5770/Nvidia GTS 450 are great cards and can handle games fine on that resolution.
  2. What would be the next step down from them cards
  3. You mean something cheaper?
    Well you can find HD 5770 for $139.99

    And the GTS 450 for $129.99

    They're both under your maximum budget.
  4. If you are very cost conscious then you can consider the Asus HD 5670 which will cost you $55 (free shipping) after a $35 mail-in rebate.

    You will still see an increase over the 9500GT. But not as dramatic as the HD 5750 or HD 5770. A typical HD 5670 is in general a bit faster than the nVidia GT 240. The GT 240 is a little faster than the older 9600GT.
  5. Are you planning to play WoW with dual monitors or only a single?
  6. wow on the main and tv or movies on the second
  7. I would agree to go with the 5670,great low budget card.You might even be able to get away with playing WoW on 2 monitors i think the 5670 has Eyefinity.With the 5670 you might get close to ultra on 1 of the monitors and high if your using both.Are they the same size or is one bigger than the other?
