Specs: Windows XP
Hi i need a good PCI graphics card to play wow with. The PC is a P4 2.4 ghz, 512mb ram ( getting 2gb ram) and 250W PSU.

I am looking for a graphics card that will run WoW with very minor lag and make it raidable

Currently i have an intergrated accelerator card. I am able to play wow on lowest setting on 800 x 600 with very minor lag. I only lag when i am near a lot of people like in major cities ( i know ram will solve this problem) or doing 25man raids..

What is a reccommended card that will do this? i will still play on lowest settings and on lowest res.

Also i am not planning to get a new pc since i already have another Quad-core i just want to run wow and make it raidable on this pc.

I can dish out $100 for one. Also will there be any bottlenecking? Since my processor is a P4 2.4ghz.

Also my PCI slot is low profile, 32-bit PCI 2.2 (5v)... i have some idea of what this mean. Like its smaller then normal PCI slots.

Will the ones you listed work on this and not cause problems. I just need one that will make wow lag free in major cities and raidable in 25man raids.

"Also will there be any bottlenecking?"

Of course. PCI cards are extremely slow when compared to AGP or PCI-express, but anything is better than onboard graphics. Don't you think it's bottlenecking now? It's not the card that's the problem...it's the limitation of the PCI bus.You also should have said you needed a low profile card.

Below are a few possibilities. They're all "low profile ready" meaning that they include a low profile mounting bracket that will need to be swapped. You'll end up losing one of the video-out ports when you change brackets:
