Will only be using one graphics card. Need anymore info just ask.

For WoW, and newer games, will do on lower graphic options for more fps.

The 240 is the better choice between the two. Since it is a low power requirement card, as long as you have a PCI-E slot on your motherboard, it should work.

Jofa's right, the 15 extra bucks with lower power requirements, memory that's 2-3 times faster and 3 times more stream processors will net you a lot more performance for the money.

OR

For 5 more bucks you can add another 512 mb onto that for this:

The xfx cards also have a lifetime warranty, just make sure to register your product if you buy it for the warranty to be honored : )

Tim, let's try to be objective for the OP's sake. Additionally, you are correct in that DDR5 is better, however I was not sure on yo_yo's budget or power supply or other components. It may be a moot point to suggest a higher end video card when it wouldn't give much of a performance boost.

My apologies, I through the "psu" in there, however my point remains that a faster video card could be bottlenecked by CPU limitations or other hardware.

Yo_Yo, what hardware are you specifically running in total? Motherboard, Power Supply, CPU, RAM, and OS?
