ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like to have an upgrade to my current card. I blew up my old momo last week and just did a rebuild with the above specs. I realized that I might be able to get a better card for the machine..but haven't done complete build in like 8 years...so I out of date on what's good or not.
I saw this card: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6850 PCIE @ Amazon. It's $139 bucks, but I dont know its an upgrade or not.
Thanks for any help or advice. I know there is a another post regarding upgrading the 8800GT, but my specs are a little different.
