    There could be a different issue than it being your video card why you would all of the sudden lose alot of performance. but if you are looking for an excuse to buy another video card then the card you picked out would work fine in your system no problem...and yea you would remove the old amd drivers first before installing the new card.
    also I would go with this card if I were you

  4. also i want this card to work i see some people on the newegg reviews saying it dies within a month so im kind of scared to buy it now
  5. take the newegg reviews with a grain of salt....realize that there were probably thousands of happy customers who card did not die but did not leave a review...also the card has a newegg return policy (30 days) and a 2 year warranty from sapphire but if that is not enough to convince you here is a diff 6850

    also a good card

    has a lifetime warranty

    see the only reason im caring is because a while ago it happened to me when i bought the 460 it broke and i just dont want that to happen ( withion the first month)
  7. im also starting to look at the 7750 because really i dont want to gewt a card tha will be outdated soon just because i didnt want to delete the control engine som im fine with a 7000 series even a nvidia but id prefer a amd
  8. a 7750 is a much slower card and would become "outdated" sooner than the 6850
