So recently my XFX's GeForce 9800 GT overheated and ceased to work. Since I bought the PC as a full from a vendor and still have 3 months of warranty left, I used the chance. However, soon after I got a reply that they don't have another 9800 GT to replace it, and instead I got offered a
Hardware isn't really up my alley but I'd prefer to not get bullied into making a bad decision. From what I've managed to find out, it seems that the replacement would actually be worse for gaming. Thus I'd like to ask help on suggesting a video card of similar quality or even better. I'm going to try asking the vendor for a better card instead.
My current spec is:
Intel E8400 processor C2D 300/1333/6M S775BX ATX
Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L board
Codegen ATX 400W V2.03 P4 PFC PSU
I use 1280x1024 resolution
Summary: I'd like to hear suggestions on cards that would work well with the current set-up or similar in performance to the 9800 GT that would be good for gaming.
Feel free to ask any questions, I'll do my best to answer them.
