Odd that they would leave out the 7850, which is the current price/performance king.
I have a EVGA GTX 650 Ti (01G-P4-3652-KR) graphics card which I've been testing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009KUT3UY/ It seems to be a great performer, and I highly recommend it for a mid level GPU. I've posted the benchmarks in my Thunderball build description. After the Apple Mountain Lion fiasco with the AMD/ATI 6000 series graphics, I will be sticking with nVidia graphics cards for the foreseeable future. :thumbup:

I'm hearing rumours of Safari being a memory hog and crashing.. Anyone here running 10.8.3 able to confirm/verify this?

Thanks for the info Storko, but I'm looking for something marginally more powerful than my current card with the latest generation that uses half the power and doesn't break the bank, and a 2GB 7850 is perfect (~$165). The GTX 650Ti would actually be a step down for me.

Side note: Even after installing the audio kext from MB, I am still left without sound. **EDIT** Got it working by deleting the AppleHDA out of S/L/E and rerunning MB.
