For the love of god, suck it up for a month of waiting and wait for the 8600ultra. PLEASE. Don't waste your money on a 7600gs or gt, unless you're going to ship it to me. ^^

You should be able to max out WoW and CSS for the most part on a 6800 card. I would get one of those.

Depends on his Res...if hes not running more than 1200 res then I say a cheap 7300GT will do it. Actually theres a few cards that for around 50 bucks could make it out. The thing is why waste 50 bucks?

a 7900GS at 600/800 will beat a 7900GT at 470/685 quite easily. It just depends how far the 7900GS overclocks after that.
