Help Upgrading AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 2.80 GHZ

I have an isnpiron 570 with the specs:AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 2.80 GHZ. I am going to upgrade to a better graphics card. I need help choosing a good graphics card that will fit in my pc and a good psu to power it. My budget is $200. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need a card that can play world of warcraft on max settings. Will a radeon 6850 be good enough and what psu will i need to power the 6850? i also have 6 GBs of ram

  1. 6850 will be fine and a good 500w psu will give u the required power http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 psu

  2. I would say you could go with this 6850 and save yourself a bit of cash. The MSI is good, but this one is cheaper and cools very well:

  3. is my processor good enough to handle a radeon 6850?
  4. WIll my cpu cause bottleneck? or will they be compatible and work smoothly?
  5. should work smoothly but if not you can always overclock your cpu
  6. world of warcraft is a very dated game that does not require alot of hardware power to run things at max settings. Im running that game at max settings on a amd 3800 machine at 1600 by 1200 with no issues. 2 gig of ram on the motherboard, the video card is just an hd4600 icecube
  7. ^i agree
  8. Your computer should handle it fine.
