I need a replacement graphics card for my son who is away at uni.
His BFG geforce 640 mb 880gts has just fried. He bought it 2nd hand last summer. Well he tells me that it stopped working mid-game, then came some smoke together with a smell of burning. Sounds fried to me.
I'm going to visit him in a weeks time and want to take a replacement with me. Prepared to spend £150 - £200 max on the blood sucking paras.... er... hard working young man. The ATI HD 4830/4850 reviews read quite good but any recommendations or advice will be appreciated. Would an HD 4830 give a similar performance to the 8800 GTS? He plays regular games such as Call of Duty, BF2 etc and l dont think he plays them at the highest screen resolutions.
