Windows 7: World Of Warcraft video card

29 Jul 2009   #1

World Of Warcraft video card

I need a video card for an eMachines T5246. The PCIe slot is x8. The application is World Of Warcraft.

From our gaming members, what are your recommendations? The user's target budget is $70. I have access to wholesale pricing, so the translated MSRP can be as high as $120.

Your expertise and consideration are appreciated.

A 9600GT/9800GT should do fine and more than enough for World of Warcraft.

With the PCIe slot only being x8, might get a bit of a slowdown, but it won't be anything too drastic as WoW isn't a very demanding game, so it shouldn't be noticable.

Just make sure the PSU is powerful enough as well and that there's enough room in the case.

There's different sizes of the 9600, so if the longer versions of the 9600/9800 are too big, then with a bit of searching there are shorter versions of the 9600 (same size as a 9600) that should fit.
