Default HD 4850 512mb Upgrade.

I am about to hit the order button on

Newegg.com - VisionTek 900241 Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

It is to replace the ATI x700 i bought with the computer.

The computer is a A1214n, XP 32bit (new case, power supply, 2gb RAM)

HP Pavilion a1214n Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion a1214n Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

I just wanna make sure it will work with my system.

i know My system will prob bottleneck the card to some point. but i can hardly play WOW on with the x700 with my 24 inch HD monitor that i Got for Free.

I updated the PSU to a 600w. it has 2 6-pin connectors so i'm good their.

Im hoping i can play WOW at 1920/1080 on good res. instead of 1200/9xx at all lowest settings.

if there is any reason this WONT work please let me know! and how much will my system bottleneck the card?

get this one instead
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100273L Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
it has a better cooler, has more memory, is slightly cheaper and comes with a rebate.
