Hey, This is my first time posting on here, but I have read a lot on here and thought it would be a good place to ask.

So I am going to build myself a new PC (Not currently sure of the exact date) and have most of my parts chosen however I could use some help choosing a good graphics card.

Some Info on what I would like to do, So yeah I want to play games on it, the game I play most is Wow and I would like to play this on Ultra settings, but I would like to play other newer games on at least high settings preferably.

I will list the parts that I am currently thinking of and would welcome any advice on the graphics card, any other advice is welcome as well.

Parts:
CPU - Intel Core I5 3570K 3.4Ghz Quad Core Ivybridge CPU Processor - BX80637I53570K - Socket 1155
MOBO - Asus P8Z77-V LX Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX HDMI Motherboard - Socket 1155
CPU cooler - Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 High Performance CPU Cooler
RAM - 16GB Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600MHz RAM Memory

I chose the above as it comes in a bundle at - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-i5-3570k-4-4GHz-Overclock...

PSU - ANTEC Alimentation PC HCG-620M - 620 W from http://www.amazon.co.uk/ANTEC-Alimentation-PC-HCG-620M-...

CASE - Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid-Tower Gaming Case from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Carbide-Series-Mid-Towe...

HDD - Any 1 Tb one

So I welcome any help and thanks in advance

P.S the one that can do what I want at the cheapest is best :p

Budget for the Graphics is £300 Pref less however there may be room for negotiation

Ok, time to work :D . You could get8GB RAM and use the money saved to go for a gtx570 :)

Yeah Could do, I notice that the 570 is only 240 and the 570ti is 260 so both could be done in budget and cheaper with 8Gb Ram :)

Righto! :D  Will you be SLIng in the future? If so, Id say you need 700W for a PSU :)

Right Im not exactly sure what that is :p  but assuming it means using 2 Graphics then As long as 1 can run games to a decent standard I don't plan on using 2 any time soon

Right again! :D  If you dont feel like SLIng then keep the 620W one.

So yeah I forgot about a few things every time i think of the PC i remember some things needed to be added lol.

So no budget specifically But can anyone recommend a

Network interface card - good enough speed for gaming
monitor - Thinking around the 1920 * 1080 resolution

and maybe a keyboard and mouse but no retarded £200 keyboards and stuff

Noticed you have 16GBs of RAM, you only need 8 for gaming. :)  Im pretty sure all modern mobos include a built in wifi card o.o Ive no idea on the monitor as how big you want it.
