After consulting Osarion's thread on the matter, I've decided to upgrade my system. Without a doubt I will be purchasing an AMD Phenom X4 9850 to replace my Athlon 7850, but as for upgrading my graphics card, I'm a little bit leery.
I currently have an EVGA GeForce 9500 GT 1GB installed, and it can run the graphics decently. I have to all but disable distance rendering though, so I was going to upgrade to the GeForce 420 GT if not the 430. My only problem is that it seems EVGA's 400 GT series isn't getting that many great reviews, and my only two other options are to buy Galaxy or Sparkle.
Has anyone used these brands before? Is anyone currently using them? How is your gameplay with them? Is anyone currently using the EVGA GeForce 400 GT series with huge success?
