Upgrade suggestion from a gtx460?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there guys.
So earlier this year my pc randomly started freezing up and needed to reboot to fix. I found the problem to be either the mobo gpu or ram. Turns out it was the ram. So i replaced that and its been all fine for a while now until all of a sudden my nvidia drivers seem to keep crashing and then my pc freezes. This is the error


My guess is its time for an upgrade and with Christmas around the corner im happy for that. I wanted your guys suggestions on what to upgrade to. I prefer Nvidia over amd and have a budget of probably $350 max. Thanks heaps.

The display driver problem certainly was not the direct fault of the card itself. Sometimes i get these errors in F1 2011 with both GTX570 and GTX670 - this is lame nvidia driver fault, not VGA.

However..

If you feel you need to upgrade, you want to stick with nvidia and 350 $ is your max cache, then i see no other choise than to get a GTX660 Ti. Something like THIS

Some people will say that it is overpriced, and i agree. I personally would just get the common GTX660, never mind Titanium - as both of them share the same pixel fill rate and memory bandwidth. Price difference between the common and Titanium is bigger than performance difference - have that in mind.
