I have an Emachines Et1331G Desktop and currently get 20fps on low graphics in WOW.

Specs are:

CPU1 : AMD Athlon™ II X2 dual-core processor 235e
(2.7GHz, 2MB L2 cache)
Operating System2 : Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Chipset : NVIDIA® GeForce® 6150 SE
Memory3 : 6144MB DDR2 dual-channel (2 × 1024MB + 2 × 2048MB)
Expandable to 8GB
4 DDR2 slots (total), 0 DDR2 slot (available)

Can anyone please recommend a compatible graphics card and power supply for this PC. I would like to spend less than $200 for both the PSU and the GPU. Thanks

Ultra... sorry but it's just not going to happen for you.

Maybe a 5770 or GTX460 + 450 or 550W PSU (Corsair, Antec, OCZ)

^+ Agreed.

That CPU becomes a limiting factor if you go with more GPU.

^alternate gpu:

only 20 less off the top, and 30 less after rebate

another alternate gpu could be this which is on a pretty good sale today:

even though these two options will work, id still go for the 768mb gtx 460 it is more powerful (and slightly more expensive then both alts)


finally,

if at all possible oc your cpu, but I wouldn't excpect a whole lot although you can def benefit from it
