Hi guys, im currently using the Acer aspire x3200 pc.

I'm looking for a good video card that can run world of warcraft at decent settings, and i'd really like to find one that could support dual monitors. The problem is, it would have to be a low form factor card and I only have a 220 watt power supply.

Is there a card that matches these specifications?

If not, could someone please recommend a good power supply upgrade so I could use a better card? (it would have to fit in the x3200's slim case though)

Thanks


here's a link to my pc's specifications

The current best low-form-factor card is the HD4650. I believe that will run WoW decently on reses low enough.

Go with the FSB groupp one. It's fine at 83% efficiency.

As to your monitor question, yes, the HD4650 supports two monitors.

I also have the X3200 and have just ordered a 4650 based on advice I got from this forum. I hope my PSU can take it!

If you have an Acer x3200, check out the XFX 9500gt. Its a 1gb card and it can run bioshock. Im selling mine on ebay for cheap, check it out. Runs nice on the 220w psu. :)  Doesnt overheat bad either. Just Got a new pc so im parting this one out.
