  1. hello, im sure someone posted somethign along this line before, but sicne computers react differently to different cards and such i figured id ask. want the new card for wow.. so =)

    i have a dell inspiron desktop
    intel core 2 duo E7400 @ 2.8
    6 gigs of ram
    64bit vista (saving for 7)
    current onboard graphics card - intel G33/31 series
    410 watt psu i think

    i was wondering if there was a good card that could run at about 30fps for the most part with the power restrictions (im looking into upgrading that since i think its damaged) and under like 60-70 bucks??

    thanks in advance

    IMO it would be better to get that new powersupply first, it would open a world of graphics card that are much more useful...
    I believe your motherboard has a PcIe, but just in case, post your motherboard or computer model number.

    The HD 5670 is a great recommendation, and this one is slightly over-budget, but you get a rebate, which makes it a great deal IMHO.

    Don't try to get anyone to buy stuff from that website, their prices are too high

    Edit:

    Never mind, i see that the website is from Australia and its using U.S. currency

    Yes dustin, if you work out the currency calc it actually is very cheap
