Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my card but can't decide which is best for me. I want a card that can run World of Warcraft on ultra with a 1920x1080 resolution.

These are my computer specs : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03...

Currently with the card i am using i pull about 8 fps on ultra. Hopefully you guys pick one that will fit as well because when i upgraded my Gpu for my last computer it did not fit in the case. :fou: 

Thanks alot,
Teebeeone

Yes, you'll need to replace the psu if you want to run mid-end gaming cards.
The one suggested(xfx 550w) is really good, and it will do for futures upgrades.
