Default Graphics Card question

Kind of off subject but i have a question about my a new video card.
My current setup is a 64 X2 Duel Core Processor 4200+. 894 MB RAM
Graphics card is ATI Radeon Xpress 1250. bad ikr. I am wondering if the XFX Radeon HD 5670 1 GB video card will work with my setup. Ive been playing wow for 5 months now and its been fine until i have to do stuff important and it slows down and plays at 10-15fps and makes me disconnect. Just want to play at normal settings with above 40-50fps. thanks![h=1][/h]

World of Warcraft minimum system requirements:
- Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+
- 1 GB or more of RAM
- NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ FX or ATI Radeon™ 9500 video card or better
Your processor is enough, but you don't have the RAM or graphics card for it.
You would need to upgrade both to make the game playable.
I am guessing in a machine that old and slow you don't have the power supply or proper GPU slot to install a 5670.

Suggestion: buy a new computer.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.

As long as the motherboard has a PCI-Express x16 slot and about 400 watt psu, you can put that card in.
