As it relates to World of Warcraft...

Low FPS in 25-mans (under 10 FPS) finally got to me, and messed me up pretty badly on our first 25-man Malygos attempt, leading me to turn all my settings down for the rest of the fight. So, it's time for a new video card.

It has to be purchased through Newegg, since I have an old gift certificate for there.

Here is my system, which for the most part was built January 2008. I'm not familiar with what is and isn't compatible with my current hardware, but hopefully someone here is.

Thanks!
