I was looking to upgrade. Mainly because my current card, an X1800 PCI-E, is playing up a lot now, and regularly overheats. It's not overclocked or anything, but the case used to get scorching hot without me noticing. It was only recently that I rectified this situation, but I believe the damage has been done now as far as the GPU is concerned. I can't play anything post-early 2007, that's reasonably graphic intensive, without trouble (bearing in mind I'm playing these games on low to medium settings anyway.)
SO, anyway, my question! I wanted to go NVIDIA now, good choice?
I'm looking to play new releases, but I'm not someone who has to max out settings and everything. As long as I can push for medium to high then I'm happy. Anything that would run Left 4 Dead, Far Cry 2, or COD with a nice sheen would be good.
I have £100 to throw. Ideally I'd want to spend as little of this as possible, and get a card that performs reliably, but I know these things come at a price. Anyway, let me know what you guys think?
Thanks in advance.
