Purchase new video card?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently started having a cooling issue with my GTX 280. Thread about it can be found
here. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1731337

Currently have a small budget $75 and was wondering what would be my best option.

Option A. Purchase an Accelero Xtreme GTX PRO Cooler. $40 - $70

+ Overclock after install.

Option B. Purchase a budget video card.

Geforce GTX 450 > Geforce GTX 650 > Radeon HD 7770

After looking at reviews of these cards it looks like the GTX 280 would outperform them if OC to GTX 285 specs with aftermarket cooler.

I'd say hd 7770. Low temps, less electricty, and still OC. Stock is about the same as GTX 285
