  1. Exactly what's your budget? Look at the graphics card hierarchy chart below: if you can find anything more powerful than your 9500 but priced the same, go for it!

  2. the 4650 can handle the Sims 3 if that is all you want to play.

    I ran a 9800GT in a E521 but needed to get an adapter for the power connector.
