Folks,

I'm trying to decide if I should continue to use my Hack with a nVidia 470GTX, or replace it with a ATI5870.

Which one is better for the only game that I play, WoW?

I'm running most for of the "Good" settings, with Environment and Visual Distance on High; Shadows and Liquid on Low; and Sun Shafts off === for the most part performance is good (60FPS=vsync).

But would it be better on the 5870? [system specs in sig]

I also ask this as I might pull the trigger on getting a Mac Pro 6core 3.33GHz with the 5870 as well - I'm just nervous about spending upwards of $4000 (US) on a computer.

the ATI5870 is a little better but if you have a 470gtx why spend the money on the ATI

why not spend half, or even less, on a hackingtosh and get macosx working on that, its very doable and will work just as good, and you can put in the most awesome gfx card a hack can run :D
