ok my build is

Processor Intel® Core---------- i7-860 Processor1 2.8GHz with Turbo Boost2 Technology up to 3.46GHz (8MB Smart Cache)6
Operating System---------- Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (64-bit)7
Memory ----------8GB DDR3 Dual-Channel 1333MHz Memory (4 x 2048MB)8
Memory Capacity--------- 4 DDR3 Slots Total (0 Slots Available)
Hard Drive---------- 1TB SATA hard drive (Green Product - variable RPM)4
Video---------- ATI Radeon™ HD5770 Graphics card with 1GB of Discrete Video Memory8
Optical Drive------------- 16X DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti Drive
Power Supply--------- 500W Power Supply

I want to get this card

Will this be a good card and will it work with my power supply. I plan on playing WoW and dual screening (one for WoW) and one for internet.

P.S.--Since its Black Friday/Cyber Monday is here, which would be the best day to buy from TigerDirect/Newegg and Im also looking for a 1920x1080 monitor. I want the total amount of the two to equal no more than $350.

Why are you wanting the gtx460 when you already have an HD5770? Your current card will do what you want.

But to answer your question, a gtx460 will let you use both monitors, and since WoW does favor Nvidia, it will perform better than what you have. Your power supply has the wattage needed, assuming it's of reasonable quality.
