i have a dell optiplex gx260
i want to play world of warcraft
it says i need a 3d accelerator card with dual-TMU support
what type of card should i get?
 
Newegg actully does still carry AGP cards but they are very expensive because they are not as in demand and common so you will pay a premium for a brand new one they range from about $60 to $100. Your best bet would be to get one off ebay i just took a quick peak and you can get a decent used card for around $30 to $40.

I looked at this fairly recently for a friend and I think the best card spec wise is something like an ati 3650 or thereabouts - if you want an absoloute budget card i think radeon 2600 is about the best price/£ ratio but possibly not great for WOW
