Default Graphic Card replacement

I decided to change my video card since mine stopped working. I would like to know if the graphic card on this site is compatible
with my computer before buying it. I want a good gaming graphic card that can play games like World of Warcraft and Skyrim.
My computer is on this website, everything is stock except for my power supply which is 400 watts. I'm planning on spending
150$ maximum so if someone knows a better graphic card please feel free to post a link.

I can't buy that because I would have to buy a new monitor.

most video cards comes with a dvi to vga adapter.
if not they can be bought for a couple dollars.
