Heya guys i have recently had problem's with my ATI X800GT 256MB card and i cant seem to make it work im thinking its because its an old card obv been outdated by AMD. However im looking to get a new card but im unsure of what my pc can actually handle been on cruicial max of 8gb of ram is available to me.

My pc is a Dell Dimension E520
Intel core 2 Duo E4300 (1.8ghz)
Radeon X800GT 256MB graphics card pci-express(unsure of what pci express i have)

This is all from CPU-Z
any more info u guys need to help me out just ask.
All i want to do is to be able to play World of Warcraft so a new card only needs to be anything between 512-1gb.
Thanks for reading guys.

GT 630 or GT430 or 6570 1GB ddr3
will still be some bottoleneck since cpu 1.8GHz.
if you install more perfomance card your cpu might shows major bottoleneck.
