I'm trying to help a friend of mine decide on a card. Looking for the best he can get in and around the $200 range. World of Wacraft supposedly does better with Nvidia cards so that is preferred. Thanks guys, looking forward to some suggestions.

At what resolution is your friend playing? Specifically for wow I would recommend getting a 760.

I think it's 1680x1050 or something like that.

Any specific 760?

Yeah in such a case the 760 or maybe even a 750 Ti. WOW is not a demanding game and it is more CPU bound. I assume your friend has a more or less decent CPU.

He said he is looking for Nvidia GPUs hence why this thread is in the Nvidia section.

I think a 750Ti would be more than enough GPU for WOW at that resolution. I've got a 02G-P4-3753-KR EVGA 750 Ti SC in my media PC and it works very well for a card with no power requirements.

If he goes with a 760, his power supply is this one:

Will that power a 760 good enough?

Personally, I'd opt for the GTX 750ti purely from a noise and efficiency point of view.
