Graphics card to replace Ge Force 8800GT 512mb / budget

It's starting to freeze or pixelate or/and produce blue lines after 15min or so and then reboots.

So I'm thinking of a new one. Some gaming like PES, Rome total war, home video editing. Don't want to go below my old one in specs but keep cost as low as possible

Specs

PSU Premier 400W
Motherboard ASRock M3A785GXH/128M
Bus Type DDR3 SDRAM
Real Clock 667 MHz (DDR)
Effective Clock 1333 MHz
Bandwidth 10667 MB/s
AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 255 3100 MHz
Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512 mb
RAM 2x4gb DDR3 Corsair
WD 500gb 7200

Any thoughts?

  1. Descent enough. Any room for improvement or should I upgrade PSU too for that?

    With those older cards you should be OK with 400w with the specs you posted.
  3. Well, thank you for your time but I won't be replacing it afterall. Looking around in the net I found this article
    ( http://www.overclockers.com/the-oven-trick-repairing-your-broken-video-card-with-an-oven/)
    on how to -possibly- revive a "dead" GPU by baking it in the oven...and it worked! I benchmarked it with FurMark hitting C100 for 15 mins, no glitch! Llike new.
  4. No problem. Glad it works for you. Since the original question was about what card would be a good replacement though and not how to repair your existing card, do you think you could choose a best solution (if any). Thanks!
