I am looking for an GPU upgrade for my system. I mostly play world of warcraft, so I don't need the top of the line. I looking to play WoW with all the Graphic settings maxed, at 1920x1080 resolution, in 3D (3d Vision) and the FPS never droping below 30. Since I want 3d-Vision, I would need a Nvidia brand.

What in the minimum priced video card considering what I need?

My current system:
Intel Core i7 2.67Ghz LGA1366,
3GB DD3 triple-channel,
Radeon HD 4800 1GB,
700W power supply,

i upgraded to a gtx 460 when i used to play WoW and that did it for me.

i dont know now, since i dont play anymore but i know WoW is not as graphic intensive as other games.

so if you want to have 3D capable with an affordable price, 460 might do it for you.

or like rolli59 recommended, gtx560ti will probably do.

Thanks for the answers.

My budget is around $300 so I guess I'll get a 570, in case I want to play some of the more graphically demanding games.

It looks like there is not much difference between the 560, 570, and 580. Only difference I can see is the amount of stream processors. The clock speeds seem to be all very close to each other.

Therefore a difference in processing power! http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_560_Ti_448_C...

I recommend this GTX 570

But note, WoW doesn't need that much of power, but investing on the 570 may let you be more future proof.
