Default Video Card Questions

Right now i have a Nvidia GT 220.

What would be a upgrade to that?

I play WOW and other computer games.

I will also take suggestions for ATI for as well

Thanks for any suggestions that may be given.

=)

What is your budget? I can recommend the 5770. I could play SC2 at ultimate. That might not be the best option for you, though. By other games, what other games do you play?

What size of a power supply do you have? Not knowing that, means any suggestions are meaningless.

Okay, even if its not the greatest psu, you should beable to power most cards.

You're looking at a 550ti, 5770, or 6770. Or even a 460 SE.

All will be great. My suggestion is to buy the one thaty excels in the games you play.
