Just want to say for WoW a 560 can play it at ultra steady 60 fps, so a 670 is MORE than enough .

I can tell you this the GTX 670 is the sweetest spot right now and is best bang for buck you can play all current games on ultra/max settings so if i were you i get me one lol motherboard is really a matter of personal choice AsRock,Asus,Gigabyte are all solid choices and i would recommend any of the three company's

this is a great config..
i want everything here- not sure about the gpu though.. damn...is it worth it- i know gtx670 is a great card, however I've been told wow won't need more than 7850..
what about 570gtx? which one performs better between these two?

The 7850 will own WoW for a lot less money than 670.
