Hello There :) 
So I search but I didn't found a discussion about my... problem?
Okey
My PC is - motherboard Gigabyte P35C DS3R
CPU - Intel Q6600 2.4 Mhz
5 gb ram (3x1 kingston set) 1x2 gb somthing (I think its kingston)
500 W cheaftec
1 TB HDD (2x500 SATA II seagate)
About the video ... :D 
That's the question :
Now ... When I bouth the PC I had Nvidia 8800 GTS 320 Mb 320 bit. (XFX)
and .. before 1 year I decide to buy new one .. owkey I did it
It's a MSI 260 GTX Twin frozr 896 Mb 448 bit OC edition - http://techwiki.hardwarecanucks.com/product/1MDE5MDM/MS...
She died before 2 weeks .. :S
I left it to service (not warranty) and I think that may be she will come again at home at her place (in my pc)
So (sorry about the looooong spam)
What video card it's best for me with my CPU power and bla bla
What are you going to propolse me ?
(May be I will buy and new power supply somthing with 650W )
I like to play games but, most of the things that I'm doing on my pc it's graphic desing and etc.
I prefer to be somthing from Nvidia.


Thank's All !!!
And sorry about rhe spam

If you are buying a new power supply, look for something from Seasonic, Antec, or Corsair. Cheaftec is a low quality brand but it isn't THE lowest quailty. I think if this card is the best for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It's a GTX 460 for $120 after MIR. Other choices are 5770/6770 for around $100.. or a 6870 for around $150 after MIR and shipping hopefully. Here's a bench for the 460 against a 6850: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/291?vs=313

Oh.. if you don't plan to SLI/Crossfire then go for around 500W to be on the safe side. 650W+ if you plan to add on another graphic card.

About 7 months ago I bought the HD 5770 with VaporX for about 150$. That seemed to be the best card for my combo of Q6600 and G33.
Whatever be the case, buy a good PSU. I have had the desktop shut down numerous times while playing games like Assassin's Creed, Modern Warfare series and Crysis. I have had two 450-500W PSUs blow up because they were of cheap quality and couldn't even handle about 300W. So make sure you are using a decent PSU.
