New Graphics Card Advice Needed

  robbiepaul79 13:54 06 Mar 2007

Hi All

I have a Dell Dimension 5150 with a x600 256, yet i think now is the time to upgrade my graphics i had hoped it would last till the next big computer upgrade to Dx10 but im a wow player and Outlands its killing my FPS.

Recently put another gig of RAM in my machine so now i have 2gig but im still coming up short, so ive decided to upgrade the graphics enough to see me through till Dx10 time.

I was hoping not to spend over £100 and noticed a couple of 7600's going rather cheap on Ebay (cant link as at work) thought this would be ok but as ever i like to check with the guys here so any advice is greatly recived

Another point is do you think it is worth the upgrade will the difference be rather noticeable i was under the impression it will be what do you folks think.
