    What's your budget? and What brand and watts is your PSU (Power supply unit)

    Cyber why don't you go for an XFX card, they have double lifetime warranty's and they have fantastic customer service. There hardware is not bad either.

    There customer service have gone down the past years from what I seen on computer forums. But I still love their Double life-time warranty and there door hanger!

    But I Still need a budget so I can recommend you a good GPU.

    Everyone's customer service has gone down hill lately, it is called layoffs... :razz:

    Then its no excuse for customer service to be going down hill so fast. If there was a layoff going around, I would work my ass off not to get laid off. But I'm not saying XFX is a bad company, I own a XFX product myself right now.

    But the bets GPU brand I seen this year is MSI, Asus, and EVGA. They seem to have a pretty good customer service going on. But those are just personal experience.

    I don't have a budget because i have no source of income. But at the most i can probably go up to is $100.

    When they went to shit, did some windows look something like this?

    EDIT: because if they do make sure you're installing the cards correctly, and stop cooking them.

    If you don't mine spending about $40 more, you should go with a GTX 550 Ti. I've been using one for a while now and all current gen games run smooth with maxed graphics on it. So it'll still handle any new games that might be coming out for the next few years before needing to upgrade again.

    Limiting yourself is called putting a budget on it.
