Default Lookin' for a New GFX Card

I'm looking for a new GFX Card since I'm still on my stock. My budget it around $100-$150. I have a Dell mobo and PCI-Express. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance .

What will you be playing, and what is your current power supply (in watts)?

I'll be playing World of Warcraft, And how do I check my current watts ?

I think I might go with the SAPPHIRE 100154SR Radeon X1800XT. It's pricey but it's well worth it.

If you can open the side panel, it should be written on the side of the PS Unit itself.

Open up the case and look on the power supply to find out.

Also, if you want to spend that much for an ATI, instead, get an Nvidia 7900GT.

Ok, Let me check the watts, And I'll consider on the Nvidia 7900GT.

Are you sure they're around 150$.. Last time I've checked they were 250+.

Your fine for Wattage. To be honest with you I would really consider the Nvidia. I'm running the 7800GTX and have had no problems with them. Probly a bit more than your willing the spend but none the less, the 7600.
