Not to fresh with all the computer hardware that is needed to run video games.

Model-Inspiron 560
Processor-Pentium (R) Dual-core CPU @ 3.20GHz
RAM-6.00 GB
System-64-bit operating system

Graphics card-Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset
I am currently downloading the game it isnt finished and i tried to play it and a message came up talkign about my graphics card. Do I need to buy a different better graphics card? If so what kind and is the current one i have not good enough or did the message come up only because the game isnt done downloading. Thx

Yes, you need a new graphics card.

You can get up to Radeon HD 7750, but seeing your CPU, I would recommend saving up for a new PC.

Cheaper, but lot weaker. For that price, you could get a Radeon HD 6670 and would outperform it.

WoW FPS will not increase in raids/cities without getting a new PC as WoW is a very CPU-heavy game.

Radeon HD 6670 would be a huge upgrade from what you have, but it'll still be limited. Don't expect much from a $50 graphics card. $100 is what I would consider a good quality graphics card that can run them maxed out with no problem.

Yes, Radeon HD 7750 is the best you can get. It's slightly above $100.
