world of warcraft does not need a high end videocard. what do you have now? is it onboard or a dedicated video card? if you really did want to get a new videocard get a 6600gt, they beat 7300. but keep in mind dx10 is comming out soon.

MacBook 2.2GHz Santa Rosa | 120GB HDD | 4GB ram
Intel C2D E6300 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB ram | 880GB total HDD space | Gigabyte P965-DS3 | eVGA 8800GTS 640mb | Corsair HX 520 | Audigy 2 ZS platnium | Antec 900

The X1950XTX you posted is not real X1950XTX.

Look at the specification it has 1550mhz memory speed, so it will perform like X1900XTX

You can get 7900GT for half the price
