ANy suggestions on a good graphics card for SWTOR, my GeForce 9800 GT is currently having problems with Black Screening. I suspect that its an issue with the latest patch in the game, but thought Id give swapping out cards a shot. I must be careful that my machine can handle the card as well. Specs of MB and stuff below. Thanks for any info:

You left out the most important bit that is the size of the PSU (make and model preferably). If the PSU is big enough it is just a matter of budget what card to get since your system is modern.

Not the best but should be able to handle HD6850/70 or GTX460.
What is the amp rating for the +12 volts?
