Upgrading my RAM on Compaq SR5113WM. Thinking graphics

  1. Hi. I am using a Compaq SR5113WM. I just removed my edition of Vista and replaced it with XP SP3 so as to use less memory, and I just started playing WoW. I'm buying 4 more Gigs of RAM, and I'm wondering if I should also add on a graphics card. I don't know much about graphics and processors, etc. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. I know it'll play WoW as is, but it plays choppily unless I use the lowest graphics settings. I'd also like to get it up to maybe Oblivion proportions. Sorry for my vagueness. Thanks.

    "Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE" This is the on-board graphics chip. Your power supply is only 250 watts. This will severely limit any graphics card addition, so plan on changing the power supply if you add a video card. A power supply of 350 watts or bigger will work. Windows XP 32-bit will only support or see 3GB or so of system memory
