Thumbs up - Video Card Assistance -

Hello everyone - it's been a long time since I've been here :P

Anyway, I need some help! I am purchasing a new video card for my friend's computer and we're a little stuck on what to purchase.

The main use of this video card is for playing games such as World of Warcraft.

Through our fabulous ability to search NewEgg.com - we have come across two video cards that look good - let me know which is better, or link something different if you want to.

Option One: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161094

Option Two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150244

I appreciate any assistance you can provide

Those are both entry level cards which may struggle with playing games at decent frame rates. They are both easily beat by the older GeForce 7600GT series card.

How much is your friend looking to spend? The Leadtek PX8600GT TDH GDDR2 GeForce 8600GT for $103.99 would be a much better choice performance wise.
