I have a Gateway SX2802-01 computer that i am looking to upgrade the graphics card on. I want to be able to play world of warcraft, and starcraft. it doesnt have to be the best graphics card, just one that can get me through playing those 2 games without lag.
Some specs-
-4gb dd2r ram
- intel core 2 quad processor q8300
-graphics card right now Intel GMA X4500 Intergrated

Thanks, Devante Neri III

what extra slots do you have on your mother board? do you have a PCI-e slot? AGP slot? If you can get us this information we might be able to help out

It's a Core2Quad, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have an AGP slot ;P
