    I raided 25mans for some time with that card, everything on High i wouldn't really recommend, other then that it's an okay card.MoP seems alot better optimized then Cata so i wouldn't know how it plays out now.Any other options you have in mind?

    I think it should be able to even raid 25mans if u put low settings+under 1920x reso+dx9.

    But yeah go for 7870 ofc, if u have one.

    I'm using a i5-750 @ 4.0 ghz & a 5770 right now, raiding 25 man Elegon I need to throw down my settings to fair to be able to survive, and even in P3 It freezes up I see like 1-2 fps max making it fairly unplayable. The card can handle every other encounter at good settings with ease.

    Definitely go with the 7870 lol
