Here's a card that worked should work with your setup:

1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161397

2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102958

It's better than the stock card and should run wow on 1080p. At 1650x1080 it can run it at 29.4 fps at 4xaa all on high settings and at 1920x1200, can run it at 26 fps. turn AA to 2x and set the graphics to about med to high and you should be good.

At idle, only draws 10 W while during load comes in at 42W. It should be good even for a 300W PSU like the ones found in the Acer Aspire series. you can get better cards but for the PSU of the Aspire, your choices are very limited.
