Looking for a budget priced Graphics card to play WOW. I'm running Vista on a Gateway GT5676 w/4G of RAM. It came with an ATI HD3200 DDR2. Any advice on an inexpensive upgrade?

What is your budget?

Something like a 6570 should be able to play WoW on high settings with smooth fps(except in cities).With the 6570 you can use your current PSU without having to upgrade.

^I would think a 6850 would get bottlenecked by that processor...

The OP is running a first gen phenom quad core at 2.3ghz.

What's budghet priced.....generally I'd say 6870 under $200 and 560 Ti factory OC'd over $200 ...... But WoW favors nVidia cards....see THG article here:
