    Video Card Help.

    Hey everyone, trying to gather some information on video cards that could I use to upgrade my machine a little bit.

    I currently own a http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c01050235

    and I will eventuall buy a new PC that is more gaming friendly but untill then I was hoping to at least upgrade the video card so when I play wow I get over 8fps on the lowest settings.

    I was looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo on Newegg, and before I pulled the trigger on purchasing it I was hoping to get some feedback or maybe advice on a different card or anything.

    Please help, Thank you.

    Yes, you'll be perfectly fine installing that card. Your computer has a 65w processor on a 250w PSU. I see no issue whatsoever adding such a low power card by itself with no other adjustments.

    As far as the card goes, it's the best you're going to do in that price range. If you bumped up the budget to around $100, I would look at the 6770. $120 would buy you a 7770 for considerably better performance.

    All mentioned cards should function without a hitch on your PSU.

    How would that perform in my cpu and in WoW?

    That will perform just fine in WoW with a few settings tweaked (mainly shadows and multisampling), and do it quite a bit better than the 6670 you were considering. It will also be compatible with your current setup.
