    Hi,

    I'm upgrading my video card to PCI-e x16 with a new motherboard ( GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ), and was wondering what would be a good video card to upgrade to that would run games like WoW and LOTRO with decent framerate. my budget is about $120-140 on the video card.

    My specs are:
    GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35
    Rosewill 450W PSU (which i may need to upgrade if the video card takes up a lot of power... please tell me if the card you suggest requires a PSU upgrade)
    Pentium D 820 (which runs hot, so i either need a graphics card with good cooling or better than stock cooling :p )

    Thanks!

    I just found a deal on an eVGA Geforce 8600 GT w/ a 500W PSU for real cheap, is that a good video card... i can also get the combo deal with a 9400 GT as well as a 9500 GT
