Thread about it can be found here. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1731337 Currently have a small budget $75 and was wondering what would be my best option. Option A. Purchase an Accelero Xtreme GTX PRO Cooler. $40 - $70 http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/21/accelero-xtreme-gtx-pro.html + Overclock after install. Option B. Purchase a budget video card. Geforce GTX 450 > Geforce GTX 650 > Radeon HD 7770 After looking at reviews of these cards it looks like the GTX 280 would outperform them if OC to GTX 285 specs with aftermarket cooler.

Why not ebay yours just disclose everything, and look at least at a 7770 or GTX 650 TI? lostgamer_03 a b U Graphics card December 12, 2012 7:59:27 PM Wish for a new GPU for Christmas, buddy!
