Say I have a 200ish dollar budget and want to run WoW:Legion at low settings on 60fps.

I'd go for a 1050ti ($150) and a $50 power supply of your choice.

Basically if I go into Best Buy will the stuff work with my motherboard? Will any GPU be able to get those results or should I look for certain numbers?

I saw some gpus and power supplies at Best Buy.

Ah okay, will a 50 dollar power supply be able to handle that good?

Why would it not be worth it? Is there something wrong with it? I am not looking to bust out ultra settings or anything. It is just in raids I drop to like 12- freezing FPS and getting booted out of LFR. I am a casual.

AMD A8 5500 APU with Radeon HD graphics 3.20ghz
8 gb ram with 7.19 useable.

Basically the integrated graphics must not be holding up. Will my PC let me install a graphics card along side the APU? I have never done this before so sorry for the questions.

Thermaltake TR2 is a label that's been slapped on everything from mediocre units to outright firehazards. Avoid.
a quad core i7 was just a rebranded celeron -Pengu1n
Anything that has 3p fps or better is fine with me -mucloud
