Need a graphics card that will run World of Warcraft and Starcraft II at Maxed settings with good FPS. I don't know if I should go with what AMD said on the back of there processor box. They recommend combing one of there discrete graphics cards such as, the HD 6670, HD 6570, HD 6450. Or If I should go with something better for example GTX 570 or 560. I don't really know and I don't want to buy something so expensive. I was also thinking about returning my A8 for an A10 and do you think the performance is worth it. I also raid in World of Warcraft and want to record fraps wile doing so and need something that can run it without no lag on a high fps with maxed out graphics settings.

On a side note I was wondering about if I should purchase an SSD. Is it worth it for gaming performance or not?

Would appreciate the help everybody thanks.

What Res are you running at?

Do read too far into what AMD says when combining there HD6XXX series with onboard. Its a poor way of doing something the right way.

If, you don't want to spend too too much cash I would say a 650TI SC from EVGA should suffice, coupled with your current processor (don't bother with the A10).
