Hello,

Currently rocking out to a Geforce 9500 GT looking to upgrade to get decent boosts and destroy my graphics in SWTOR, WoW, and Tribes. Looking for below 130$ if possible. Power supply is peak 300. Thanks

what CPU do you have?

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM

And if its not my graphics card that needs updating then what? I am getting weird lag in Tribes, and in Open world SWTOR.

under $130 is hard. You should try for a 7770

Best solution

under $130 is not hard at all

good
AMD 6670 is a good jump up from the nvidia 9500GT (performance would be below the ATI 5570 in the chart below).

better
AMD 7750

both draw similar power and don't need an external power connector (they get all their power from the motherboard)

SCII (also by Blizzard) would have similar hardware demands as WoW



power draws are minimal

Thanks so much for the informative reply.

100 bucks for the 7750, pretty damn good. How much "better" is that than my current card?
