    My graphics card is failing and won't let me do much. Since I have been away from the graphics card market for so long I don't know what new one to get. My budget is 100-200; preferably on the lower end. What do you guys suggest I get? I have an NVIDIA 8800 GT 512mb, at the moment.

    screen turns different colors and flashes when try to play graphic intense games, and eventually crashes my computer. 1 month ago I got the blue screen of death multiple times over a period of several weeks. Today I got a message that my driver failed but was restored. I tried reinstalling the driver but I am having the same issue.

    I mean, are you sure you want to buy a new one? Because this sounds driver related. Have you downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's website?

    I grabbed another install of the driver. I had originally used the windows driver updater tool to update my driver. Looks like the problem is resolved now. Thanks man.
