Hi Everyone... I want to replace my current Video Card with the best one my system can handle (no desire to bottleneck). Any feedback or advise would be great. Here is my Current System:
• Asus P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe Motherboard
• Intel Core2 6400 @2.13Ghz
• Windows XP 32-bit
• 4 GB of DDR2-SDRAM PC6400 (seeing less because of 32-bit OS but it's there)
• SilverStone 650w Power Supply
• Video Card is currently nVidia GeForce 7950 GX2
I am really sick of this card as there was an update released at the end of 2010 - that if installed will give you Black Screen of Death (system works but no display). This seems to be a common issue with this card and something I just don't want to deal with any longer. I do a ton of photography editing and also play a ton of games like Call of Duty (MW2) Crysis and Left 4 Dead 2 but what I really want is Crysis 2 (which the demo would not run on this card). Well it ran but the display and lag was so bad I couldn't do anything.
I was hoping to look at (go back to ATI) the Radeon 5870 or something around that to take advantage of the new-ish Eyefinitiy (currently have 1 monitor and would a reason to get two more)
Hope some advise comes in so I can trash this P.O.S.
