Need Advice on Upgrading Video Card

I was hoping to get some advice on upgrading my video card. My current comp is a couple years old:

Motherboard: ASUS NODUSM3
Chipset: nVidia nForce 410
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ @ 2200 MHZ
Memory: 4 Gig
Current Vid Card: nVidia 7600 GT
Power Supply: Antec TP3 - 430

I'd like to spend less than $150 on a card and was looking at this:
Video Card

Would this card be a decent choice? I've changed vid cards in comps before but don't really keep up until it's time to do it so I wanted to make sure this card would work with the motherboard. Using PC wizard, it indicates the board had a PCI Express slot. I don't do any heavy gaming really. I mainly play WoW and am tired of low frame rates during 25 man raids. I'm open to suggestions of other cards or advice as well. Thanks for the help.

Hi and welcome, sorry for the delay in responding.

Given your current system, I think that graphics card would be overkill. Taking a quick peek at Tom's Hardware graphics charts, something like the HD 4670 would be a good choice.

Seems like you have a HP (possibly HP Compaq) computer, is that right? What's the make/model, please?
