if you can run the 9800GT, you can run these three cards and not lose performance.

around $100, the ATI 4770 (if you can find it). It offers similar performance to the 9800GT in some games, slightly better in others. Supports DX10, like the 9800GT.

around $125, the ATI 5750. It's a solid step up in performance from the 9800GT and offers DX11.

around $160, the ATI 5770. It's a good step up from the 9800GT. Offers better performance then any card mentioned and supports DX11.

True. Make sure your PSU can handle any card you might buy.

A 650w Antec PSU will easily power that GTS 250.

that corsair will power the GTX 260 with power to spare, the corsair 400w will run the GTS250 with ease.

if you have a PCI-E 1.0 x16 graphic slot, look for a 2.0 card. GTS250 cards are 2.0 cards and 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0.


or see if your mobo has a BIOS patch to support 2.1 cards
