Yeah, pci isn't going to be very good, but it's the only choice you have. Just find the best pci card you can, the Radeon 9250 is about it.

That should run WoW just fine. If that's the most graphically intense game you play, you should be fine with a Radeon 9250.

Alright guys, thanks for your help.

The idea was that me and my brother could both play WoW at the same time - this PC is my main gaming rig for Doom 3, Legacy, UT etc.

- ATi Radeon X1650PRO|2gb|22" HD Screen|320 serial|

I still might upgrade the Dell's GFX as soon as my payslip gets in.

Cheers

Nah that's my Dell, used to use it just for Word etc, but now want to make it happier playing WoW.

I use this PC to play my games on usually -

X1650pro, 2gb Corsair, Pentium 4 3.0ghz etc etc
