Default Upgrades for my Dimensions 4600

Hey guys, im looking to upgrade my Dell Dimensions 4600 with more RAM and a new graphics card. My friend recommended these two products and I am wondering if this would be good for me. Main focus is I want to be able to view videos, play World of Warcraft, and have my computer run a bit better. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

(Also I am wondering would these two products be fitted for a Dimensions 4600 w/ Pentium 4)

RAM-->1GB Corsair ValueSelect RAM

Graphics Card-->eVGA nVidia Geforce 6600GT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130220

P.S., can anyone point me to any good sites where I could buy these?

Make your psu can support those componenets. Why can't you buy it off newegg? That ram is good and I like the vid. card but I personally would go for the 6800gs.

Your power supply. Make sure you have enough wattage to power a 6600gt or a 6800gs if you get it.

Well this is what I got so far, what do you guys think?

GeForce 6600gt Graphics Card:

Corsair ValueSelect 1GB (512MBx2) DDR SD RAM PC 3200:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440

Dell PSU: Silencer 410 Dell-2:

This is, I say it again lol, for a Dimensions 4600. The Power Supply on my comp now is only 250w so thats why I have to go ahead and get a new one.
