I want to get a new gaming graphics card. I would like to play WoW with good performance and high quality. Be really nice if I could play maxed out. Anyone got a card that they recommend will do the job. My computer specs are on the bottom of this post. I will buy an extra fan for it (if it is necessary). Will my power supply affect which graphics cards I can get? I do not what to buy a new power supply.

The cards I thought might be good is:, but you guys know alot more than I do. So please help me out.

8600 would be fine.
PSU does affect which GPU you can use, the 8600 doesnt require an additional cable. I believe the card recommends a 350w PSU so you may have to upgrade the PSU as well, this shouldnt be too expensive.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is very high quality and is $39.99 after a rebate, there is a little headroom for growth.
