Default PCI-E Graphics Card- Which to Buy?

Hello everyone, I am looking to upgrade my graphics card. I am interested in getting a card in the $250-$300 range, although I dont mind spending an extra $30 or so. Right now this is the card I am looking at: http://microcenter.com/byos/byos_sin...duct_id=237021
So I came here in hope of some suggestions on which card would be a good upgrade. And btw, I intend to use this card mainly for WoW if this makes any difference. Please if you can find the comprable ATI version of the 7900 GT. Thanks~

Yes an eVGA 7900GT would be the best card for ~300

If not then

There's an ATI compareable
Or the X1800XT 512MB and the X1900GT is just junk

I have to agree. Definetly get a 7900GT. I recommend eVGA.

But get this version, it has a higher quality VGA cooler for the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130015

If you plan on overclocking, you might want to look into getting an aftermarket VGA cooler.
