oi panda, if u want a new video card this is what u need to check, dont ask whats the best or what ever coz the leader is a dumb price as always even tho for a couple points less u can buy a $300 card instead of a $1500 card and the difference on ur computer is nothing, look at the score vs the prices and u can get an extremely accurate view of what u need in ur comp and how much ur willing to spend.
find the highest scores within your budget, check all the charts but mainly the high end chart(if u want anything decent at all u should only be looking at the high end) and then if u think u found 1, google problems with that card to see if its a lemon or what, if theres nothing really wrong with it then u go buy it.
i go to my computer shop and tell them which 1 i want and they order them in for me, takes a few days(the reason i do that is so if theres something wrong with it, they have a duty of service so they would have to replace it if its a fucked card)

eh, its not always so simple. expenno cards sometimes retain their value a lot longer, by having superior aspects too them like crazy amount of pixel pipes, or volumes of ram way ahead of their times.

You at least want to look at a lot of different benchmarks.

Normally it was at about 70-80 depending on the day. But today went to 42 here and yeah no CPU cooler must have pushed it to something insane.

But I regained some composure and set up the Heap of crap I bought for 25$

Did this last night.

WTF! Ive never heard that before... What cooler did you have on it.. & the MB should have shut the thing down way before that shit could have happen.

My MB i set to shutdown the PC if the CPU gets to 80 degrees.
