This. I haven't upgraded in several years - I'm running a GeForce 9600GT (arguably the most future-resistant card ever made IMO). STO runs perfectly with almost everything maxed at 1600x900 and quite well with the sliders at 75%ish at 1080 on my TV.
Even the lowest end discrete nVidia cars made now outpace the 9600, so I wouldn't be too worried about having to break the bank, STO just doesn't need all that much power.
