Get some air flow and style with something like or CM storm scout Antec 600 or you can even save 30 quid and get CM elite 430 graphics for £203 you can get xfx 6950 2GB or £192 for xfx 6950 1GB mobohobo November 1, 2011 4:55:48 PM would that get me max on wow and sc2? or for cheaper could i still see no difference? cheaper the better also, why not a gtx 560ti?

Get the answer crewton November 1, 2011 4:56:21 PM Should also mention that if you intend to crossfire you should get 750W psu like Corsair 750tx £84 crewton November 1, 2011 4:57:23 PM Ah right forgot this was just for wow/sc You probably won't have to worry about 2 cards hehe. To max out WoW you'd only need a 6850. mobohobo November 1, 2011 5:00:08 PM why not nvidea? i saw somewhere that nvidea is seemingly bias toward intel so... id be fine with not maxing sc2 then till ivy bridge and pcie3 cards crewton November 1, 2011 5:03:08 PM You get more for less with AMD atm. Even a 460 is £120 on that site crewton November 1, 2011 5:04:52 PM Can a 6770 max wow? I got 60fps except in a few boss fights I'd dip to 40. I'd imagine the 6770 falling in the 20s at that point. mobohobo November 1, 2011 5:15:36 PM hmm, but gtx 560 is same price as 6870... hmmm mobohobo November 1, 2011 6:39:53 PM so anyone else know if a 6770 will play wow at 60+ fps even in raids and crowded places? metal orient November 2, 2011 10:42:40 AM I was always under the impression Nvidia ran Blizzard games better. mobohobo November 2, 2011 3:16:50 PM yeah same... so metal orient November 2, 2011 6:30:06 PM So get an equivalent Nvidia graphics card, GTX 550Ti or GTX 460 768MB. They are a little more expensive but probably worth it. Unfortunately I cannot find any reviews to back this up as blizzard games aren't generally used as benchmarks. Emelth November 3, 2011 2:25:38 AM My GTX 460 still runs wow perfectly once it starts getting below 30 in raids I'll just toss another 460 in SLI xD Can't find your answer ? Ask !
