I've been running a Dell XPS Gen5 for the last 4 years with great success. Nothing has ever gone wrong with the machine...until now.
Lately I've noticed some odd flickering in the screen (bands of pixels start clumping, and then screen interactions get more difficult, and then the screen starts flickering black and normal, black and normal. As far as I can tell this is not a problem with my 24" dell screen which is running perfectly the other 98% of the time. Since the system gets all wonky and then crashes, I'm thinking video card over monitor.
I'm having trouble tracking down a replacement GeForce 6800 and figure that it's worth asking whether anyone knows what else I could for certain plug into this motherboard in case I need to. If you know where to find it at a good price, bonus!
