The 260 gtx is a nice card but ATI just came out with their new cards and the Radeon HD 4850 is faster for about $100 less than the 260GTX.

But WOW uses an older graphics engine and low poly count models with that cartoony look. WOW will run great on some fairly old hardware so if he is using that computer for WOW only and is running SLI then there is no reason to upgrade. He probably has the resolution maxed out and the detail settings maxed out. If he is playing on a 32" 720p widescreen TV then the resolution should be set to a maximum of 1280X768. The rest of the settings should be adjusted to maximize the experience to your liking.

Some LCD TVs to add lag because of the image processing that is hapenning behind the scenes, some TVs have a gaming mode that minimizes this lag. Also your internet connection could be the culprit causing your lag.

In the end you do not need an new video card to play WOW. If he wanted to play Crysis with high detail then that would be a different story.

if the power supply has the 6 pin connector to plug into the video card, you should have no problem using this card with your current setup..
i currently use a GeForce 9800GTX+ with about the same pc as you have using a 600w power supply and no issues what so ever, generally the video card power supply requirements will be stated on the side, but i'm pretty but it requires a 450w or 500w, so you should be fine.
