Hello, I'm looking to upgrade from on-board integrated graphics and I need a suggestion as to what video card to purchase. My computer has the following:

Windows Vista Basic
3.5GB Ram
PCI Express x16
300 Power Supply

I'm looking for a card that supports Direct X 10. Also, I'm not sure if I can use a ATI card because my current on-board chipset is by NVIDIA. Does it matter? I know I should upgrade my power supply but I have to order it from HP because of my chassis so that is out of the picture now. I really just want a card that can run World of Warcraft and other low level games at a better FPS. Right now I get about 25 FPS, I'm looking for something that can double that.

I've only found one so far here http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150257

I've read some decent reviews about it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

dont waste your money, corsiar power supply 550 watt can be pretty cheap and then get like a 9800 gtx. You can put an ati card, but nvidia are better cards anyway.
