My GT8800 ultra 768mb failed last night.

I want to get a new graphics card, was thinking GTX 295.

But ideally i'd want to replace my MS-7235 fpr PCI-E 2 at least, and I thought perhaps an Asus P5Q Pro turbo

Then I thought I better overclock my Q6600 to help keep up with the vcard by getting a thermalright Ultra-120

I have 4 x 1gb ram not sure if it's 800/1066 though.

Can anyone see a flaw in my plan or have better suggestions?

what is the resolution of your monitor?

and have you read the most recent

It's a 24inch BenQ, 1900x1200.

No I haven't, though I have since been looking at

GTX 275 and HD 4980

as a card to keep me going until I'm ready to upgrade properly.

where's the article?
