I've basically checked the website, "Can you Run It" and it has said that everything is fine accept my Graphics Card. It's a little old and I want to know the best one that would be efficient as possible for all the new games.
I buy all of my computer parts here Cheap Laptops, Hard Drives, LCD Monitors, TVs and more at Ebuyer I would apprectiate if anyone could link me to a newer, efficent graphics card which would cope well with my system specifications on this website. I don't use anything other than Ebuyer.
The 9800GT is not an old or outdated card by any means. What exactly are you trying to run that it isn't good enough for?
The best nVidia graphics cards right now are the GTX 285 (single GPU) and GTX 295 (dual GPU). The 295 is best for games that take advantage of SLI, otherwise the 285 is the best single card.
Go for a 4870 or a gtx 260 anything more and you will get a bigass bottlneck from your cpu.
And honestly, a GTX 260 is probably not going to give you a huge performance boost over a 9800GT.
Since you have 4GB RAM, you might also want to get a 64-bit operating system, since you've basically got over half a gigabyte that you can't use.
Over a 9800GT either card will give him a big performance boost. It all depends on the resolution also. What games are you going to play?
Do we get any more info? Monitor resolution, games being struggled with, budget, etc.
And why do you only use ebuyer?
Well, I've been playing Saint's Row 2, and I can't even play on Low without some kind of Lagg. No need to worry about any Budget, I've got enough money :)
Well if you have no budget then go for the BFG Geforce GTX 285 OC (BFG GeForce GTX 285 OC+ Video Card - 1GB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV BFGEGTX2851024OCPE in Canada at TigerDirect.ca) But if you don't want to spend 400 something on it, then go for the XFX Geforce GTX 260 (XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition Video Card - 896MB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0 x16, SLI Ready, (dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support, FREE Far Cry 2 Game GX260NADBF in Canada at TigerDirect.ca) Either one you go with you'll be blowing through games at max with ease. But ouviously the GTX 285 will last longer.
If you are getting lag dude, its most likely the CPU. Overclock it, 2.6GHz is by no means anything special. The 9800GT is the same as the 8800GT. My card gets no lag in any games, other then Crysis. It maxes out FC2 and everything else at 1680*1050 resolution, most games including FC2 even crank out 4* AA. (Mind you I average 35FPS in FC2)
Overclock the CPU before investing in a new GPU

It will top any of the Nvidia single GPU cards in games as long as Crossfire is supported. If your looking for something cheaper, get a 4870 1GB: Sapphire HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer
