Default need a better than IGP graphics card

i am currently using a intergrated ATI 4250 and it blows....

i am looking for a decent PCI-E graphics card that is better than this garbage IGP i know IGP arent supposed to be good but i need something better that it something that will at least play COD4 or COD WAW ate medium settings for a decent price. im trying to get on because i need a graphics card upgrade but i want to upgrade my processor, PSU and case first so when im done getting those i can save up more money and get a badass graphics card so i need some suggestions. I was looking at the 9500 GT but i need some suggestions

Honestly I like it BUT from the reveiws it seems like theres alot of issues if you are running windows 7. I would recommend getting it because my friends used to have this SAME card and he absolutely loved it. I found it quite nifty too

BUT keep in mind that windows 7 apparently has some trouble with this beast!
ALSO make sure it will fit in your case because its a pretty long card. I would suggest it though

Save Up. The 9400 is a great card but i suggest you should save up and get a better one thats future proof
