I recently ordered a new, to me at least pc. I know its older but its far better than the piece of junk I have right now. I want to get a graphics card for it that is cheap as possible. The games I wanna play are world of warcraft and all expansions as well as the sims 3 and most of its expansions. Maybe dragon age origons. I have no idea what would be suitable to put in it, so I would appreciate the help. Here is the computer info I know

The Cheapest Card that you can get is the HD 7770 or the GTX 650 Ti. That would play those games without any problem. If you want to pay it on 1080p, that would also work at about 30fps depending on the game.

but if you are really really tight on budget, you can get the GT 640 at about $100 but I would not recommend that.

Hi - Please be aware that PC has a 300w Power Supply. Realhardtech
suggests 430w for either 7770 or 650ti, maybe you could get by with a
quality 350w unit, but I don't think 300w will cut it for very long.

If you can't upgrade your PSU, then consider a 7750.

7750 or GT 640 does not require you to change your PSU. HD 7770 and the GTX 650 Ti needs a PSU of 430 450 watt with 1 6 pin +12 v
