Hi just wanted suggestions for the best graphics card I can get for up to $130 or so.

I have:

AMD Athlon II X4 3.1 GHz
(Not sure about the MB ,this is a pre-made system I was given)

8GB DDR3

1TB HD

Windows 7 Home Prem

Current graphics is just the integrated


Just ordered a nice 600w PSU to replace the 250w that the system has currently

I will not be overclocking or anything. I would just like a card that can play (no eyerolling please lol) WoW and Second Life on max or even Medium (easily) settings. Is my CPU etc good for that?

For up to $130 shipped, without going over or playing rebate games, here's a HD6790: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Edit: Delroy, that's $135 AFTER the rebate, plus $7 shipping.

6770 or even better 6790 are amazing cards at around $100-140. Great performance they stay cool and they dont need a massive PSU.
