if youre talking about what numbers you should expect, i dont really know. i tried looking around for some info but couldnt get anything solid.

if you mean just running wow period w/o lag, then yes you should be able to run it, but again, im not really sure what settings youd be looking to play at, probably not max settings though.

plus, that card just fit nicely into your budget, so that was what i suggested.

Unless the raids get extremely extremely big, this card is fine.
