So im upgrading from Nvidia geforce 315 what has 512mb of ram because i hjave 2 monitors and the graphics card keeps crashing because it's overheating.

And i need some suggestions on what i should upgrade to.

My price range goes up to about £130
I personally want to stick with a NViDIA graphics card because i know it will work with my pc, and also i need something that will run 2 monitors with high end games working on it. (i know my computer will run them)
Also i need atleast 1 VGA port and a HDMI port.

If you need any more information about my computer then just please ask :) 

Thank you!

what is in the rest of your system since the 315 is a very low end card to play games on to begin with, you do not want to waste money on a card the rest of your system will bottleneck.

The geforce GTX 650 or Ti versions is a good videocard to start with.. but first just like what mauller07 said, whats the rest of your system.

I'v got in my pc:

Processor: Intel core i5 650 @ 3.20GHz
Motherboard: Acer Aspire M3910
Memory: DDR3 3GBs (2gb stick and 1 GB stick)
GFX Card: NVIDIA GeForce 315

Is there anything else you need to know? I didn't really know what to post.

Thanks for the suggestion for the GTX 650 but it doesn't have a VGA (D-sub) port within the GFX card, which is what i need because one of my screens only has a VGA port

a 560ti would be a reasonable card, spend the rest of the money getting 8GB of ram and change your windows to a 64bit version, you should be able to use the same key if you have a 32bit version currently installed

I was planning to get more RAM and also i already have 64bit Windows 7, But i looked up the 560ti and it doesn't have a VGA port, do no newer graphics cards have them?

the card will have a DVI-I port which you can use a DVI to VGA adapter on, they usually will come with one in the box.
