Hi,

i'm currently running on this specs

AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 BE
1TB Hitachi HDD
6GB RAM
Nvidia 9800GT GFX
M4N68T-M V2 Mobo
500 Watts eXtreme Power Plus
CM Elite 335 case + SickleFlow 120 2000 RPM Blue LED fan

so the problem is, i m actually thinking of upgrading my graphics soon... so before i do i need to survey and consider whats the best graphic card for my setup... not aiming for crossfire or SLi just a single monitor play some high end games in high settings.. i've jus upgraded the set except for the graphics card and the PSU... price wise i m not quite particular i just want the ideas... i'm quite a noob in this...

Cheers

Maybe you wanne change the psu also, it's not that great. Corsair, Antec, OCZ, Seasonic, preferably get one with a single 12V rail with at least 40A, 600 W, 80+ certified.

The higher the res the better it looks obviously, but demanding more GPU VRAM. With a 6950 2GB you can easily play on 1920x1080 res or higher, if you setlle for a cheaper GPU ( 560 or 6870 ) 1080 will be the max. But again, i would wait if i were you, the 9800 ain't that bad. Maybe buy a better psu now and get a 7000 series when they come out.
Make sure your monitor can handle the high res, otherwise you buy a expensive card for nothing.

A good ( 80+ ! ) 600W PSU will be enough i think. To be completely sure you can go for a 750W but i can't imagine the new cards will use that much more volts than the 6000 series and they are happy with a good 500W PSU.
