Hello, my cousin is living with us and he is a mooch... Regardless I love him to death. We bought him a new pc after his laptop died just to give him something to play World of Warcraft on. Being a fellow WoW player myself I know how the urge is :p 

Anyway I am looking to get him a better video card just to hold him off till he gets a new pc. I am looking to spend around $100.00 and was thinking of picking him up a gts 250.. I happen to love the card, I have been using it for 2 years now I think.

the 531s is a slim line case so the GTS250 won't fir unless its low profile (the low profile version is expensive) and the 531s comes with a 250-275w PSU ( I forget which)

if you want a cheap option, get this ati 4650. it will play WoW ok

the low profile Nvidia GT 240 & GT 430 offer better performance if you want to spend around $80

I would avoid Low Profile PCI-E 2.1 cards (ATI 5xxx), they tend to have issues with the BIOS in DELL 1.0 x16 mobos
