Video Card
Its getting closer to tax time so i should have some extra cash to upgrade my video card and possibly some more memory.

What would be a wise choice for a new video card? Im looking for an NVIDIA based card and was thinking about a GT9500. Good card or would you recommend something else?

RE: Video Card
My GTX 560 Nvidia card has been pretty good, it has been great since my reformat. It does nicely, but it has a loud fan on it and I had to upgrade my power supply to 600w, so all in all I have about $250 invested. Since the reformat, I have had no problems or conflicts like I had before with my onboard ATI graphics. Working good Smile This is my first experience with all of that so I may not be the best resource.

RE: Video Card
I've read some negative comments in the Hi-Rez forum about the 9500 being able to handle T:A, I mean it is clearly a good card and would perform better than what you presently have but T:A apparently is being engineered with more recent technology in mind. The 9500 cannot handle the game like a GTX550 or GTX560 or later. Make sure your motherboard can accommodate whatever you decide to buy, both in ram speed and size (some of the more recent vcards take up two slots).
