How's my Rig?

Yes, yet another "How well will my rig run World of Warcraft?"

But yes I was wondering how well, or perhaps at what settings I should run WoW at. When I use the recommend settings in WoW it sets everything to High then I end up with 30fps max :/

Anyway here are my specs copied directly from dxdiag;
Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_gdr.121023-1503)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
Memory: 12288MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 12224MB RAM
Page File: 5163MB used, 10677MB available
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce GT 630
Display Memory: 4042 MB
Dedicated Memory: 1994 MB
Shared Memory: 2047 MB
Current Mode: 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz)

Let me know if I'm missing anything, and I'm pretty sure I need to upgrade my GPU but I'm not sure to what.
Thanks in advance everyone!

It'll run WoW poor due to low-end graphics card

Any idea what I should upgrade it too? I prefer NVIDIA, and shopping from newegg, but if you can suggest a better chipset and/or site to buy from I'm all ears. Also my max budget would probably be around $200, but I could push it if need be.

Thanks

For $200 you'd be hoping for a deal on either a Radeon 7870 or a Geforce 660.

Here is a sort from partpicker: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=114,82,110&sort=a5&xcx=0

Both cards for $190 are back-ordered but still listed as available...you might call NCIX and ask if you buy one will you get that price and will the rebate be valid even if it takes them a week or two to get it to you.

Here is a comparison chart of the two from Anand: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=660

They're about even, it just depends on the game. The 660 will likely be ahead in WoW though.

I already have a 500w PSU (500 W (active PFC, 80 PLUS®-certified, more than 82% efficiency) ). So getting a nice GPU should be easy enough.

And thanks everyone for your input
