hello all i want to do a bang-for-the-buck upgrade on my comp
cheapest video card possible that can run WoW better than I am currently.
- all settings on low but with view distance on high
nothing fancy, this is just to improve gameplay a bit until I build a new PC

Compaq Presario SR1950NX
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+ 2.41 Ghz
2.5GB RAM (pretty sure its miss-matched will be getting 2GB of the correct RAM to total 3.5GB RAM)
Integrated Nvidia Geforce 6150 LE Video Chip
Stock PSU - 300w
3PCI Slots (2Open)
1PCI Express

Never ran any XFX cards, from previous reviews EVGA was a bit better so between the two I chose EVGA. Your motherboard memory will not have any conflicts with video memory.

cheapest video card possible! Thats why I went very cheap because you did not want spend$ because you were going to build a new PC.

ended up getting a radeon 5450 512mb for free

works great compared to the last ~7 years of WoW/D2 on the integrated 6150 LE
comp responds faster and WoW can be played on "good" at 40fps

now my only question is, is this safe?
it came out of a modern prebuilt with a 300w PSU but ive seen a few spec lists/reviews saying it needs minimum 400w
