Overkill for WOW and there are cheaper cards that will beat it in performance unless you get a great deal.

Agree with rolli.

Also, you won't need 3GB of VRAM unless you're going to play on resolutions such as 2560x1600 or higher.

I would recommend taking a look at the Radeon HD7850 or Radeon HD7770, they will play WoW just fine and will save you heaps of money.

i mean... a GTX 560 ti ($200) or like 7850 ($190) will handle it just fine...

Probably don't need to go that beefy in the first place IMO, an HD6850 would probably handle it without breaking a sweat, same with the HD7770.

I hope you aren't buying those 580's brand new, as their are out of retail and is suprpassed by cards cheaper than it.
