Default in need of a better video card, Brooklyn NY area

hey guys, well im not really that much of a computer buff, well im not at all but yeah some guy made me a computer and was claiming that this computer performs great and will not have any problems running all the recent game title's with ease and what not. Well for a few days this was true, playing different first person shooters, and strategy games and what not, but when i installed my number one most favorite game, World of Warcraft, basically the only game i play now. But yeah game appearance is choppy, what i mean by this is that during game play, even not in motion in game parts of the screen gets all broken up, a chunk gets taken out of the screen, the best way to explain this is picture a still picture and imagine multiple shards/long spikes appear on the screen in multiple areas over and over ruining the picture. If you are wanting to know what i have...this is what i have

and this is the requirements of the game that i play all the time:

Windows® System 98/ME/2000/XP OS:

800 MHz or higher CPU.
256 MB or more of RAM.
32 MB 3D graphics card with hardware Transform and Lighting, such as GeForce 2 or better.
4 GB or more of available hard drive space.
DirectX® 9.0c or above.
A 56k or higher modem with an Internet connection

Basically this thread is to ask anyone that if they have a much better video card for sale or have any recommendations of video cards that is best suited for my game. If you are wanting to know what i use my computer for is, basically a gaming pc, i just want a great performing video card that will work well with my 19 inch lcd very well, nothing too fancy and expensive because i dont want anything that costs an arm and a leg and will be outdated or be outperformed by a new one. please help me
