I am getting world of warcraft cata soon and I know I will need a new card to really enjoy all the new stuff. I am looking to go cheap as possibly but still be able to play with max settings. I was going to get http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics... but I read I would need a 450w power supply and all I have is this http://www.itwinkle.com/hp35posu51.html

So four questions:
Can I run that card with that power supply?
Should I just buy a power supply? If so what one for that card?
What is the best card sub $180 for my power supply?
I have installed ram, video cards and hard drives how hard is a power supply to install?

1) No that PSU isn't good enough.
2) Yes you need a new PSU to put a good GPU in the PC.
3) Here's a really good option: :) 

Asus DirectCU GTX 460 768MB & Corsair 650W PSU $205 ($165 after rebates)

Way more power supply than you actually need, but the Combo Deal is ridiculous so you might as well. For $165 after rebate you get a $90 power supply and a $140 video card.

4)Installing a power supply is very simple. However time consuming compared to RAM or a GPU simply because you have to disconnect and reconnect all the power cables. It just takes time to do that. Otherwise, it's usually as simple as 4 screws. So far as power connectors go, they're all sized and shaped differently so you cannot plug them into the wrong places. The trick is making sure you plug in all the same ones you unplugged. That way everything works. :)
