Default What Graphic card is right for Me?

I am a gamer, I play alot of MMO's and My integrated Graphics are not cutting it!

I have a Emachines W3650

*300w power supply
*2g RAM
*I have 2GHz Celeron processor if you need to know that.

I mainly play World of warcraft so something that could let me play Maxed Graphics with no lag and high FPS.

You sure about the 300W? The specs say 250W. At least you have a PCI-E slot.

What is your budget? That will be the main limitaion for you. If your budget is enough you may eb able to get both a GFX card and better PSU.

Since your CPU is a LGA 775 you could possibly upgrade it, too. Your motherboard can handle Core 2 Duos, Pentium Ds, and P4s up to 800MHz FSB.

Yes It is a 300w I was just looking at it and My budget is limited to 150-200$ I might consider the new CPU

If you want a good graphics card, I'd be worried about the PSU.

You could get a Radeon 4850 plus a new power supply (anything by Corsair, PCP&C)
