Default Upgrading Video card and Power supply

So I got this comp from Best Buy http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+...y dx&cp=1&lp=2. I had $600 worth of Best Buy gift cards from work which is why I went that route.

I want to upgrade the PS and Video card. I mainly play WoW but want it to be decent enough to play other stuff should I decide to. My budget is around $150. This what I was looking at;

Card: Newegg.com - HIS H675F1GD Radeon HD 6750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Power Supply: Newegg.com - OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Modular Gaming Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

Any thoughts or other suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Based on your small case, its a good setup.

For $10 more you can get a 6770, but it is a bigger card.
