I'm thinking to upgrade my gfx card in the near future also. I thought my previous install of Windows 7 was corrupted and I got sudden system freezes. I still have them occasionally when I'm browsing web or playing something. I still got warranty but I'm getting bit fed up with it. I think I'll go with nVidia next and already been thinking this one -> http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=855 Do you have any experiences with Gainward, the one I linked has 1.25GB memory. I read from Stickys thread that there's only need for 2GB if I'd play with bigger resolution? I'm using 1920x1080 myself Edit Looks like Gigabytes card costs the same in the shop I'd buy it from, has same specs. Sticky have you been satisfied to your card?
