Hello all. I am looking for some advice. I have two different graphics cards at my disposal right now.
(Yes, I own both of these in different rigs)

I am trying to find out which one is better specifically for playing World Of Warcraft.
I know they both work, but which will give me better performance and be able to run at higher settings. 1920 x 1200 Resolution...

That link doesn't work. I did browse the performance charts, but I am unable to find the specific cards linked above. Especially the Black Edition 260 Card. I am aware the newer card should be an improvement, but I am not sure how much of an improvement it would make specifically to World Of Warcraft. Any other feedback?
