Default Is this a good Video Card?

I am replacing my old ATI 9200 from my other computer and wanting to replace it with this. or do you think this one is better? Do you think that this would kill my 9200? I am playing WoW and CS:S most of the time. I like to keep my settings at really high Res.

Thx in advance

Get a 6600 GT or a X800 GT. They're both about the same price and they offer similar performance.

Do you have AGP? Make sure you have that first before you buy.
