Hey guys, recently my graphics card has been acting a bit crazy. Overheating like hell and under-performing in simple games like Truck Simulator (
).

Generally it's been a bit of a pain in the ass ever since I got it so I'm looking for something (even midly) better. I'm guessing since it's like 3 (I think) series behind the mid-range cards of the new series (either ATI or nVidia I don't care) will be enough to outperform my current one. It would be nice if it had a smaller cooling system cos this one is quite huge, loud (when it gets hot) and still proves to be useless.

Thanks in advance guys.

edit: Forgot to mention that I would like to keep it cheap-ish. I guess 150-200$ being the limit. Less would always be welcome if possible

Ok,

Well, if you want to send me your old GTX I can bake it and use it for Physx.

On top of that, the best bang for buck card on the market is easily the ATI HD5770. I max out everything and have no problems.

If you can't max it out, get a second one
they are so cheap anyway it's easy enough to do it.

a 5770 or a gtx 460 are both good choices with your budget. i'd probably get a 460 and oc it quite a bit.. fermi cards really shine at higher frequencies

it's not the frequencies that make you buy the card, it's the SLi scaling.

true, but even 5770 crossfire is out of the op's budget. 460 sli would be way over lol. the 460's a great card because it's cheap and oc's well enough to punch above its weight

A 768mb 460 is in that price range, and quite a bit faster. For $150-200, newegg has the Gigabyte 1gb GTX460 for $199 AR. Amazing price/performance right there.
