You shouldn't be getting 36 fps in wow/org with 4.6GHZ and a 7950.

I play wow on my 6870 computer, with a i5 2400, and I get the 35+ FPS in orgrimmar (if I turn everything up to ultra, but I have most things lowered to get 60 fps at all times), on the extremely busy full 99% horde Mal'Ganis server.

Also, when I overclocked my 6870 about 10% the difference was very noticeable.. I also have a flashed MB bios to overclock my i5-2400 up to 3.5GHz and my average went up 1 fps.

IMO
http://goo.gl/9o8mL - GTX 680
or
http://goo.gl/BXvd7 - GTX 670

The 670 is probably the best for the money, its pre overclocked, it has a gtx 680 pcb, and a great blower style cooler.
And you can overclock it more to basically a 680.
EVGA has the best quality and service imo, for Nvidia cards.

And you were correct earlier, WoW is optimized better on Nvidia cards.
For Guild Wars 2, its pretty even between amd and nvidia.

Whatever you choose.

Quick Update!

GTX 680 is installed and running smooth as glass, get to test it in a raid tomorrow but so far its running beautifully. Was running through Divinity's Reach in Guild Wars 2 at 55-60 FPS Solid on max settings.

Ty all so much, all ur help really made me enjoy this whole process, and the end result even more smile.gif
