After all the problems with my system I've finally come to the conclusion that I need a replacement for my EVGA GT7950 512 Video card. If you can keep the price to somewhere around $150.00 US (lower if possible) I would appreciate it!

Not sure if this would help or not but:

My System is this:

I did end up ordering this card, ordered it this past Wednesday and had the card Thursday (free shipping to). 1st thing I noticed about the card was how big it is (I know that's what she said :)  ), it does take up two slots but I had them open already anyways. Then the 1st time it powers up is like a race car Vroooooooooooooommmm, it plays everything I own and then some and on 3d mark gets over 44k 3dmarks or whatever they call it. Very nice. Thank You very much for the reccomendation!
