Wow that 6800 is basically the 6600GT with double the RAM and a slower clock speed. Thats really weird. I dont know what i would go with. If you can overclock the 6800's CPU clock to match that of the 6600GT i would go with that. Otherwise i would probably just go with the 6600GT since they are the same amount of pixel pipelines. Although that 6800 is one badass looking card.

Well that CPU is amazing...

As for the video card, the 6800 should be better than the 6600GT since its newer... adn you can probably overclock that even more if you want as well.

I dont really plan on Overclocking at all. I just want to pop it in and go though.

yes, the 6800 would be a lot better, you don't need anything crazy for WoW, and that card is VERY good, so it should be fine
