Asus 570 Graphics Card

Hello,
I currently have the Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3 motherboard and i want to upgrade my graphics card. I built this computer myself and the card I'm looking at is the Asus 570. The game i play is World of Warcraft so i dont need to much power from my gpu, however the nvidia 520 I have now surly does not cut it. My question is will my motherboard + my intel i5k 2500(3.4ghz) bottleneck and hold back my whole system and also do i need to buy a gtx 570 that only takes up 2 slots on the back of my motherboard instead because this Asus gpu takes up 3. keep in mind i have a wireless card for my internet so if you take a look at the board on google or something you could probably help me by telling me where you would suggest putting everything. I also have 8g of ddr3 ram which im happy with along with my 680 watt power supply. please provide me with all the help and tips you can, Im a young kid looking to upgrade my system so I could use some help from everyone

Thanks!!!

    The motherboard is very good you don't need to upgrade, and in the future you can SLI Gtx 570's. But id recommend a faster single gpu anyway.

    but you agree that a 570 will be fine for now. i can spen $250 to $300 or a little over unless there is a significant reason to buy a more expensive card

    In a week or two the gtx 660ti is gonna be on sale for $300 it is more powerful than a gtx 580 and consumes less power.

    If I had $300 to spend I would invest in the gtx 660ti.
