Old video card replacement question: I have the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series card, which causes all sorts of shutdown problems on my Win7 machine and driver errors. I’m done trying different drivers, as nothing has worked. My specs are: EVGA nForce 750 SLI board, an Intel E8400 cpu with Xigmatek 1234 cooler, 4GB DDR2 Ram and 2 regular hard drives all in the Antec P182 case. I am NOT a gamer at all, so my needs are simple. Amazon.com now has the following three deals, which look appealing, but I need help deciding:
Saphire Radeon HD 5770, 1GB for $115.00 delivered, after rebate.
HIS 5770 1GB for $110.00, delivered, after rebate.
EVGA GT S450 1GB for $110.00, delivered, after rebate.
This is the price range that is comfortable with, and I believe any of these would suffice, but before buying, I’d appreciate any feedback and suggestions. I’m looking for reliability and good drivers, with the ability to watch DVD’s at 1080. Power supply is somewhere around 550-600 watts, I believe Antec, but can’t remember exactly. Thanks in advance for any help.
