Hello all!
I am looking to either upgrade or replace my PNY GTX 295. It was a really good card but I cant get it to stay running for more then two hours without a strange crash..


I was looking at the ATI 7950/7970 and Nvidia 660ti or 680. My price range is around $325 or so.
Open to any recommendations!

I have been comparing theese two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And it seems like one has a bios issue.. is there a way to say some money (and get a free game) and just flash the new bios to the first card?

INFO:
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Photo and video editing.
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY:1000watt
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:MSI p7n diamon, Intel core 2 quad q9300
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg/tigerdirect ebay.
PARTS PREFERENCES: Ati or Nvidia is fine
OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:Want a card with a lifetime warranty would be good but not required.


Thank you very much!

or

This ==> $330 overclocks well . Presently out of stock, but should be back in stock soon.

Sapphire makes very good cards. They have good coolers and OC well.
