470 is a VERY capable card, should get nearly 75+ FPS I reckon..
Not in WoW. The game can bend all up to date gaming rigs down on their knees in heavy crowded areas.

Does WoW support DX11? If so there's probably more CPU overhead in the DX11 version of it or something. The 470 is faster than an 8800GTS by quite a wide margin.

You can enable DX by editing a file, some gain performance and some don't. It's still a CPU dependent game.
