Greetings,

I'm looking for a new Vid card. As stated above, my NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT fried, and now I'm on the hunt for a new one.

Probably leaning more towards a PCI-Express, but anything that can run WoW WotLK at it's highest video settings will be absolutely fine with me.

Heres my system specs for you to look over, I currently have my old card installed, a 5500. $150 - $200 Cheaper than $150 is fine as well. :)

Welcome to Geeks to Go, Klockwerk.

A few questions:

Are you sure you have a PCI-Express slot?
What is the wattage of your power supply? (It will usually say on a sticker on the power supply.)
What is the make and model of your computer?
