Hello, I need help picking a cheap graphics card that will run World of Warcraft and perhaps Source games at low settings with decent-good fps. Please try to keep it as cheap as possible while meeting my given requirements.
Here are my specs.
HP pavillion Model A6400F(KJ379AA) Processor Intel Pentium dual-core E2200(2.2GHz) Memory 3GB DDR2 800 Hard Drive 500GB SATA 7200RPM 250W Power Supply Optical Drive 1 SuperMulti DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology Graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 128MB Vista Home Premium Motherboard Chipset Intel G33 LGA 775 Memory 3GB DDR2 800 DIMM 240-pin 1GB x 2 & 512MB x 2 Memory Slots (Available/Total) 0/4 Maximum Memory Supported 8GB PCI Slots (Available/Total) (0/1) PCI slot (1/1) PCI-E x16 slot (2/2) PCI-E x1 slots
Monitor resolution is 1366 x 768.
I understand I'll likely have to upgrade the 250W PSU as well. I'll only be using this computer while I save enough money to build myself a proper gaming rig.
I live in the USA and I'd prefer if the parts are from newegg.com.
I'm pretty clueless when it comes to hardware, so I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks.

I looked at a few benchmarks for the 5750 and it looks like it would be overkill for what I'll be using it for.
Again, I'm mainly looking to run WoW at the lowest settings with a good framerate while I save enough money for a gaming rig.
Get a 8800GTS or a 9800GT, it should be good for that resolution
