I paid $80 on Craigslist for my 5870 and I run at 1920x1080 on Ultra with a couple tweaks.

The only question I see is "Cheapest graphics card that will run wow mists" I made a suggestion based on that.

yes but you think if he is into mmo rpgs he will want just world of warcraft and it will have to last him a good few years too

I think I answered his question, maybe he doesn't have much money and wants the cheapest option he can use.

Depends on your resolution.
HD7750 would pretty much do it at 720p and lower.

HD7770 would do it at 1080p.

cheapest card? A 7750 will do very well in MoP I think, I quit near the middle of cata so I haven't looked at benchmarks in a while but during cata I was using a 6670 and at nearly max settings with 30+fps all the time.

I would advise against anything lower than a 7750 as the price/performance ratio drops like a rock.

edit: +1 to nova, a 7770 is better and always worth an extra 10-15 bucks or so.

Here is another way for you to try your search.
Here is Tom's Graphics card hierarchy

As the other have mentioned, the HD 7770 is about the lowest you'd want to go on the chart.

The cheapest HD 7770 on Newegg is $115

Otherwise, as I pointed out, used you could get an HD 5870 or GTX 560 Ti for about $120 or less and they are 2 tiers higher than the HD 7770

Both very viable options and fairly affordable if you aren't concerned about games that come out in about a year or so.
