hello, everyone i thought i would stop by here and ask for everyones help with choosing a new graphics card.

currently i am using a nvidia galaxy gt220 but am highly upset with the card as even after applying new themal paste and the highest cfm fan i could get my hands on to the card the it still has heat issues which cause bsod.

i previously used an older 512 ati radeon card with no problems but now i upgraded to a new motherboard and new processor so want something a little better.

i am on a budget and my price range is around 100 bux shipped possibly 110

if anyone can offer advice i would greatly appreciate it.

Raise your budget by $13 and get a GTS 450 for $123 shipped, pretty sweet deal. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-120-_-Product It's a lot faster than a 5670 (its between a 5750 and 5770). Or if you are willing to do a mail in rebate, the slightly faster 5770 is also in reach. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-462-_-Product
But without mail in rebates, the gts 450 for $123 shipped is the minimum I would consider buying.
OC your cpu, get a good aftermarket cooler like the cm h212+ for under $30...and you have xp so 2gb of ram is fine. I assume its x86, so with a 1gb gpu you can only use around 2.75gb anyways.
