Hi guys. In short, my video card is starting to die out. Drivers aren't fixing anything, and after all I built my machine back in 2009...it could just be time.

I currently use:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would like something pretty similar, if not slightly better like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Can I use video cards with DDR5 ram, despite my mobo and current video card using DDR3? I don't know if these things need to align between mobos and video cards.

Other system specs:
Win 7 Home Premium w/SP1
Mobo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
Intel i7 @ 2.67ghz
12gb RAM DDR3

Any help would be appreciated as I'm looking to ordering soon and as my computer is showing serious signs of dying soon.

Thanks for the lead. Are factory OC cards anything to worry about? I might still be in a very old school thought that overclocking sets you up for a giant risk in weak stability.

Factory overclocked cards are fine often come with better cooling solution and are fully guarantied by the manufacturer.

It has lifetime warranty - why don't you just contact evga?

Hassle, heh. :D  I'd likely get a refurbished card anyway, which I've never had a pleasant experience with.
