  1. I really don't know what card to get. i know that my computer has a pci express slot x1 or x16. it also has a powersupply of 300w. My question is what graphic card can i get with the least problems in gaming. I usually play World of Warcraft. another question is will my computer be able to sustain any video card i upgrade too. i have a emachine W3644 desktop.

    How much are you looking to spend total on the card?

    Your PSU is fairly weak for todays standards, luckly WoW has fairly low requirements so a high end card is not needed. Now, if you want to run more demanding games, a stronger card will be needed, and because of the weak power supply, it will need to be upgraded as well.

    The rest of your PC is fairly weak as well. Notably your processor. But they should be able to run WoW.
