Need a recommendation for a new, cheap card...

Hello everyone,

I recently bought this computer (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) as it seemed like quite the deal and I had limited money to spend.

However, as the reviews say, the graphics card it comes with is a little bit outdated. I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for what I should buy to replace it. I did a little research online I'm unsure if the ones I'm looking at are compatible as well as which one will meet my needs without making me waste money on amazing performance I'll never experience. With that said, I should let you guys know that I'm buying one specifically for gaming, and the only game I play is WoW, with the occasional game of SCII. That said all I need from a graphics card is the ability to run WoW on at least medium settings in a 25 man raid with 30+ FPS. Additionally I obviously want to be able to watch Youtube videos without any problems and the usual stuff. Finally, my budget is only about $60-70 (shipping not included).

Thanks a ton in advance :)

This fits right your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want to spend a little more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Either will play WoW and SCII at highish settings smoothly

It will fit your case, the 4670 is a relatively small card, the cooler is what looks bulky and will occupy 2 expansion bays but that's it.
