This is not a repost but a seperate new one!!!!

I am currently living in China I have a

This is not a repost but a seperate new one!!!!
Great Wall 270< WATT PSU 350 Watt Max
ASROCK N68S UCC MOBO
AMD Athlon II X4 640 propus 3000mhz CPU not O/C
1 X 2GB 1066 DDR3 ram
160 gb IDE 7200Rpm HD
onboard GFX
onboard sound
running windows xp with all SP

I am going to Hong Kong to buy my things as I am not sure in China exactly what I am getting i.e. false brandnames knock offs factory / reconditioned units.

I will be playing Wow CATACLYSM at 1024 x 768 On a 21 inch KONKA LCD monitor
So can any1 reccomend a gfx card and PSU (about 450w - 700w range) that is capable of doing the job a giving me 30 fps in cata? < I dont want flashy just a decent 30 fps <

Also a brandname for 2 x 2gb twin set of ram as well and a Sata HD any help will be apreciated as my amount of info is censored here< not lazy just censored a lot

for the GPU and PSU i am looking at a combined price of around 150 pounds if possible < like i said i dont need flashy just capable.

Thanks in advance guys :D :D  your english friend in china

price in hkg is about same in england so i only need names etc unless people know addresses of hongkong shops:D

Ram upgrade to 4GB
Any DirectX 11 discrete GPU (AMD 6670 or Nvidia 450 GTS or better)
Windows 7, which will let you take advantage of WoW's new DX11 API features, improving perfomance
Any power supply from a reputable manufacturer (SeaSonic, Corsair, Antec, ThermalTake, etc.)

At 1024x768 resolution you do not need a super fast system anyway.

sorry should have read above upgrades<

yes, with windows XP (DX9) or windows Vista (DX10) you will still be able to run the game with the above hardware, but it will be fastest with Windows 7 (DX11) Also, make sure not to overload your WoW game with add-ons, because that will slow you down too.
