Default what are some good graphic card for left 4 dead?

my rig

Core 2 Due E4500
graphic card=8400gs
2gig of ram that is 5300
some bs ecs mother board

i need a graphic card that could play left 4 dead because the 8400gs only put out 20 and lower fps so its kinda laggy when i played.

been looking at the 9800gt and hd 4830.

max i would pay on graphic card is 130.

also it would be nice if yall link me to the graphic card yall recommend.

the 8400 should at least run better than 20, but yeah. That ain't the card for gaming.
Well both those cards will do fine. Left4dead isn't, compared to recent games, demanding.
Your CPU has a pretty small cache, so a nicer Vcard would be good compensation.
Go with an ATI, better money for better performance.

Wow if you could pump your budget up to 150-160 you could get a HD 4850. then you would be good to go for a bit.

Did not see the rebate on that one. That is right in your budget.
