APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: I got this computer in 2005 or 2006.

BUDGET RANGE: I want to find out what the average price for a good card is at the moment, but I can't afford too much.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I would like to play most MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft or Lord of the Rings Online, and Zoo Tycoon 2.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: I've looked at the computer specs and devive manager, and I have yet to locate the GPU anywhere. I do not know how to locate the power supply.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: The system model is a Dell DM051, with an Intel Pentium D Processor, CPU 2.8 GHz (it says 2 CPUs on the specs). It has a memory of 2046MB RAM. I currently have Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 on it.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I would rather go to a store or order from amazon.com, but I'm fine with using other websites.

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference. I want a good solid graphics card that enables me to play games with reasonable graphics.

OVERCLOCKING: Doesn't matter to me, but I do want the card to last.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: I don't know the meaning of this.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1024x768

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Like I said, a good gaming graphics card that won't break the bank.

an hd 6670 would probably be your best bet. They are very cheap($50) and could easily play mmorpgs.

GPU will do, but processor barely on minimum requirements for WOW, so do not expect smooth play.
