Yet another ATI card bites the dust, I'd guess this is due to overheating as were my previous 5-6 ati cards, personally I'll never buy ATI again due the cause of death always being the same...

I have had that one for 3 years. Bought a cheap on that doesn't require any power supply just to get me going. I am looking at buying the 7850 HD card as the long term replacement. However what would you recommend as a suitable replacement. My budget is 200 quid.

If your only playing WoW you don't need a beast of a card, but given the budget I'd suggest something like this:
