if you take any good video card probably will be bottlenecked by the CPU, and changing the cpu will make you change everething...

so if you only wan't upgrade video card i would go for Geforce 550 ti,radeon 6850 or higher, they can handle wow at max graphics on 1920x1080, you will get good performance on wow already, but be aware that you will lost a lot of performance with your current cpu so i would recommend you to change all your components when possible;

Also make sure your PSU will be able to handle the new video card, depending on what you choose;

What model inspiron? Tell me it's not a slim-tower... If it is, this is the best card you can use:

If you have a mid-tower, you can swap in a better PSU like this one:

And then put in a great mid-range gaming card like this one:

I highly recommend this card - the cooler does an incredible job, and you need that in Dell's Inspiron cases... Oh, and it maxes out almost every game at 1080p.
