CPU: AMD Phenom 2 X4 955 3.2ghz MEMORY: 8GB PC3- 10700 DDR3 MOBO: Asus M4A78T-E with PCIe and PCIe 2.0 PSU: Raidmax Blackstone 700 continuous

The card I have now is craptastic.
Goals: - to get 60fps while questing and maybe dungeons if possible.
- 40fps or so in raids and heavy populated areas.
I'd like these results with having settings high. I don't think I'd really need to play WoW on ultra or whatever the highest setting is. From what I gathered, WoW is mostly a cpu intensive game and I'm hoping that my processor will be fine. It is sorta old. If someone can help me out that'd be great! Thanks!
If you need any other information to help me decide, please let me know.
With that budget, your two best bets would be either the HD7870 or the GTX 660.
Both are at 194.99 US$ after Mail-in-rebate, you get free games with both of them, Assassin's Creed III or Far Cry 3+Hitman Absolution.
Both are more than capable of pulling their own weight in 1080p, and I suggest you go with whichever games you'd prefer/don't already have!
