I recently upgraded another computer to a Radeon 6670 card and a Corsair 500w PSU with really good results with World of Warcraft. If possible, will these same products work with the computer I am asking about?
yes if you get a 6670 then you wont need to upgrade his psu.. but since his monitor resolution is 1080p a 6670 wont cut it unless he ok with low settings. 7750 is most you can get without changing the psu. just get the 7750 . its better than 6670, wont require psu upgrade and its in your budget too at just $100. http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-11202-00-20G-Radeon-PCI-...
