Well...What size monitor do you have?I'd probably get a 9800GTX myself if you have a larger monitor and high resolution you want to run. If you have a smaller monitor, I'd either keep your current card, or get an 8800GT 512mb

I do tooI spose if you're getting a TH2Go you'd want a better card to handle the higher res.I'm still not sure what one to recommend - I'd personally get a 8800GTX or 9800GTX.If you play other games you could go for a GTX 260 or 280http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130368argh, forgot to ask, what power supply do you have? You'll probably want at least 600w and a strong 12V rail, like 30A or something, not sure what the latest n greatest is these daysfor example, this corsair has 3 12v rails, each with 18A, so that would be plenty:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817139002

I have an Enermax 350W power supply, looks like I need to upgrade the power supply as well :)I like the GeForce boards, and the 9800GTX costs about US$ 200.00 now, little more than the HD4850.Thanks,Ulisses
