replace video card

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Ok mentioned in another thread my BFG GTX 275 has been downclocked to remain stable, I know its a video card issue, as the PSU is brand new.

I have 220 top for a new video card, Ive decided to go wtih an MSI 870-G45 and an Athlon II X3 450 used but known to be guranteed to unlock as it was a buddies to replace my 9850BE and board that where also going flaky.

My Native resolution is 1366x768

What i play

World of Warcraft
Need for Speed Undercover
Crysis Wars
Crysis 2 MP
COD:BO
BF:BC2 Vietnam
L4D2

now my GTX275 handled it all fine, and still does downclocked, but I also want to feel like its an upgrade over my GTX275 and hopefully last as long so almost 3 years being able to play games at high details, most maxed settings at 1366x768, AA and AF are important at this res lol.

So 220 budget, no used Video cards, will order from Newegg
