    That's what I have right now effectively (different brand ram, mobo, case)
    You can save a few bucks and get a 500w power supply.

    I get 65fps on High, about 50 on Ultra with shadows turned to High. 60 with everything on Ultra by overclocking a little. (Middle of stormwind)

    I dont see any real issues. If you can splurge for a 660ti, it might be worth it. It might also be worthwhile to get a Noctua cooler or something for the CPU, since it can overclock well, which benefits WoW greatly.
