Ok so I need a new videocard and two ppl have given me different choices, which one is best for me?

(I will upgrade the memory too)

This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103004
Or the sapphire one? I'm going to buy it for sure and about 1 or 2 gigabytes more and thats it. Mostly so I can play wow with lots of other programs on more computer. It doesn't lag too much but.....

Well thanks a bunch

Yeah that is a pretty decent GPU, and you only really need another gig of ram before that becomes a bottleneck.
If that is a socket 939 PC then you could put a new proc. in there and have a pretty decent PC going
I personally recomend that card but either way both will do fine.
