APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: After I get some advice on what to buy, ill buy.

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming - I box often in WoW and I'm preparing for Copernicus

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: EVGA 560 ti superclocked, Corsair 750tx

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: intel i5-2500k and Asus P8P67 Pro mb

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:I usually shop at newegg or microcenter

PARTS PREFERENCES: NVIDIA

OVERCLOCKING: No, probably not

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: If there is room, yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION:currently 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The best bang for my buck, without crappy display driver crashes and preferably something that is tried and true.

Budget - $500 max for a single card -- or $600 for two

Well you can buy this card.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

but since you already have a 560 ti i would buy another one (equal) and do SLI, the 750tx corsair can handle it, and at the same time looks like your motherboard is not SLI compatible (why did you bought Crossfire motherboard, to user Nvidia cards?) so or you get a 580, or you also change the motherboard.

OK so the reason i want a new video card/cards is because the 560ti has caused me nothing but problems ( display driver crashing) so I wanted to get away from the 560.

Ive tried everything that has been suggested to fix it, even a clean windows install. So im just gonna get a different card


Plus there will be a new MMO coming out here and I want to be able to box with max settings s, I want something powful!

I dont want to get a brand new build, I just built this one last year and its great minus the crappy video card problems. After troubleshooting and reading tons of forums, i'm not the only one having the issues.

What seemed to have stopped it (havent had a crash since the change) was upping the voltage to 1.150

at any rate, i might get another 560ti if it doesnt crash. I'll give it a couple weeks but if it does well thats why im here. TO get some advice on what to get.


Also wouldnt mind going up to 16gb of ram
