i got a pretty old and low-profile video card right now. i had it for quite some time and im looking for an improvement (well deserved already)
its an XFX nvidia 8400gs 512mb.
so, to the tech pros out there, if any, which card is a good improvement? im on a tight budget so no GTX5xx or such.
it has to be nvidia because im not familiar with ati.
anything past geforce series9 is just a mess and i dont understand a thing. browsing around i found that a gt520 is worse than a gt430 even though the number is higher and everything... so yeah im pretty clueless here.
i dont run hardcore stuff on this comp (ko, LoL and in the future guild wars 2). ideally i would want an upper tier geforce 9 series (9600 or 9800) but if i cant get one of those then i want to know which video card is good past the 9 series!
tl;dr im looking for a nice upgrade from my old nvidia 8400gs. not looking for the best of the best, just something that is substantially better (like 2x better), cheap and not so flashy.
