More about what graphics card system
  1. first ofall you forgot to post what PSU you have, which is the most important question considering most graphic cards would suit your rig pretty well.

    Without knowing your PSU I would simply say the 7770 since it doesn't need extra powe supply and can certainly play WOW... And is below 100$. But don't expect magic if you are going to play high end games.
  2. Sorry about that should have realized my PSU is 500 Watt
    80+ Certified Power Supply cheers
  3. All i want to do on the computer is use it as a home office computer edit videos and the only game i want to play on it is WOW.
  4. The System is SLI just to note too
  5. Best answer
    I don't play WOW, but I would say that a 7750 or 7770 should be sufficient.
  6. you are planning to sli the video card"s"? That would be a Nvidia card and I don't think you will find any new cards for ~$100 that can sli. Older cards you could, but that would make no since.
  7. thanks guys for the advice and the sli thing i meant the system has sli but i am not planning on using it yet. I just want an alright graphics card to start off with seeing as this is my first gaming desktop I've had.
