7750. Better than the 9800GT for gaming if you decide to. It doesn't need a power connector. It gets all of it 60wattish power off the motherboard.

Meh it's not that much better though. Maybe 20% increase max.

Best price/performance card right now (IMO).

not knowing what PSU you have the 7750 is a safe bet, but chances are you could run a more powerful card like a 7850

If you were running a 9800GT on your system, you can run this card - and you should see about a 40% performance boost, especially in newer games. The HD 7770 overclocks very well, too.

I missed the part about the 9800gt (great card) you should be able to run a 7850. As for the the 630gt it's crap, if you already have it you it MAY be able to use it for dedicated physics, otherwise pretend it never existed. 9800 ... 700 ... 600 ... 500 ... 400 ... and finally 300

Yea. If you run a 9800 right now, you can run a 7770.
