So I am looking into upgrading the current graphics card on my PC which is a NVIDIA GeForce 6200. I would like to go to an actual Graphics Gaming Card. I don't need anything top of the line just something to play WoW and SWTOR on mid to low settings with good FPS. Now my PC isn't great but i'm not looking at upgrading the whole thing.
Here is the power supply i'm thinking about purchasing as well.

Keep in mind that I am using the 6200 graphics card in the PCI slot on my PC.
So now that you got some information can anyone tell me if that power supply and this card

Would work all together with my PC and if you have any other suggestions let me know but don't say upgrade processor or anything i'm talking about different Graphics or Power Supplies and try to keep it under 130$ including shipping.

PCI slots are old unless you mean PCIe. But if you have an AGP slot, the best graphics card for it would be the HIS Radeon HD 4670. I have one and it works fine. But if you do get this and go to the amd website to download the latest drivers, you have to select All radeon hd agp series instead of hd 4*** series PCIe.

Well first off don't get that PSU it is on the do not buy list. And you do have a PCIe x 16 slot so your the card you are looking at is good. Just your PSU is no good. You should look into these brands.
1. Corsair
2. Antec
3. Seasonic
4. XFX
Those are just some of the best PSU's out there. I will link you to the do not buy list and two PSU's I do wish you good luck. Your PSU is on the tier 4 list. Tier 1=Good Tier 5=bad.
